It's a Whale, It's a Whale, It's a Whalefish he cried"

Avila Beach
was
in
the
national news
few mornings ago

pod
of
were
hovering
around
Avila bay
in between
and
 around the piers
and causing quite
a
scene


 pelicans
were
everywhere

kind of felt
like
that
eerie
Hitchcock movie
"The Birds"

fish
must
be crazy
there below the
surface

pelicans dive-bombing

seals

dolphins
_MG_0054

 and
huge
glorious
Humpback whales
_MG_0006

slow dancing
in and out
of
 the water

so
close to
the pier

diving
in and around
fishing boats
_MG_0014

putting on
quite
a
 performance
for 
all
who came 
to see

_MG_0026

and they 
slow-danced
back
out
to sea
_MG_0039..


_MG_0042


and were gone



the whales
reminded 
me 
of a song
from
1962
sung by the Limeliters


a song
that I played
many years
later
when 
Annie and Andrew
were little

cannot
even imagine
how
anyone could ever
kill
or even harm
those
magnificent
creatures



…just saying




Thank you, John Conner
for 
all the 
wonderful
photographs
