I had my first whale sightings of the trip today. Too far to identify them but it looked to be two or three whales. I cant wait to get a closer look. North east winds are up the past couple of days which have made for aslows paddling and crazy evening storms. Another one rolled through today and got me off the water a little to early. At least the surf is down, although with these dumping shorelines, it is still difficult to launch. I am definitely looking forward to some calm seas and warmer temps.
