Surrounded by the life-giving fog of the Pacific Coast, we went in search of gray whales this morning in Magdalena Bay.  We navigated like little ducks in a row, all following the lead Zodiac.  With the surfacing of a cow/calf pair of gray whales, we stopped and waited.  The calm quiet morning was punctuated with the gentle blows of an adult female gray whale and the less exuberant pffft of her calf.  This was our last opportunity for viewing the whales up close and they did not disappoint.  This curious calf was granted some license by its mother, and cavorted between, around and under our little boats.  It was an experience we will not soon forget.
