Whales! Photos taken from the shore near Monterey and Capitola, CA

I have neglected blogging, and taking photos, since we’ve moved to California but, decided it was time to share a few shots of whale sightings in the Monterey Peninsula.  It’s been such a thrill and delight to watch whales several times in the last few months, just from the shore. Powerful, peaceful and magical whales…they calm and astound me.
