Naturalist log for Sunday, February 6th
Naturalist Log, Sunday, December 12th: The trip that almost didn’t happen. Forecasts called for high winds and rough seas for today, bad enough to cancel the trip. However, this morning revealed some beautiful conditions, as the forecasted south winds had yet to arrive. Seizing the opportunity, we managed a morning trip, finding some ten humpbacks in the middle of the bay. With the occasional tail throw and close pass, our passengers had a grand (albeit cold) time on the water. Just as we pulled back in to the harbor, mariners still out in the bay reported that the winds had indeed arrived and that conditions were deteriorating rapidly. One and done!
