Marina Del Rey had a surprise visitor: a Gray Whale

Since Real Estate has picked up, I have been so busy that I did not have time to take a stroll by the beach. Yesterday I decided to take a walk. I was amazed at the number of people by the Channel, did not think much of it and I continued on my stroll. Then I saw two News Media vehicles, now my curiosity was peaked. What is going on?

 Had a watched the news for the past few days, I would have discovered that since last Friday we had a 20-foot-long California gray whale in our channel. Evidently the whale would go out eat and return to the channel. How exciting is that, needless to say I did not have a camera with me, no need anyway, the whale has not been seen since 08:30am according to the ones in the know.

 So I came home disappointed and turned on the news, sure enough the News Media gave her a name: Nichole. So armed with this information I went to bed and forgot all about Nichole.

 Now I want you to know that all the news channels are carrying this news. So now I had to go on the internet and sure enough there is an article in the Los Angeles Times where they interview Peter Wallerstein, (Founder of Marine Animal Rescue) and he indicated that the gray whales migrate south to the warmer water off Baja California. They come from Alaska and this takes place from February to May.

 Evidently we have a sightseer that wanted to stop in Marina Del Rey and liked our Channel.Gray Whale in Channel
