Went down and walked the docks in Newport yesterday, it was beautiful out. Half dozen or so sailboats chasing each-other in the harbor, spinnakers flying on the down-wind leg. On a subsequent trip across the bridge I noticed another boat turning at the harbor exit, and thought of this post. There was good sized pod of whales that looked like they were feeding between the jetty and Yaquina head lighthouse. Must have been 10 or more there by the number of spouts, often three at a time. My wife saw 4 flukes in the 10 mins or so we watched them, she was happy. Anyway, I've gotta say I'm a tad envious as I've been boat-less for a while now.
Man.. Just realized you are in Newport bay down south, anyway it was a beautiful day up here, and wanted to share, best of luck to you
