I haven't posted in while. So, I decided to share some pics from this gorgeous beach day. Took my family to the beach and we got the extra bonus in seeing a whale breaching right out in front of us! He was only ~ 200 yards offshore. I only had a cell phone and made whatever meager attempt I could to capture him. Nothing fancy with these cropped cell pics, but you can see him jumping in a couple of them. I guess living near a marine life sanctuary has its perks.














Sunsets have been really great lately. Here's one from last night.

Nice!
Drove by the bay today and it looked particularly beautiful and it was very clear over on your side of things.

Yes, and fortunately no more smoke from the fires. Looks like rain is also in the forecast for next week. We haven't seen it in a while.

West Cliff Drive in Santa Cruz is a popular whale-watching site in the fall with the locals in the neighborhood. I've seen whale activity there right around this time of year, in recent years, after I got tipped off about it. You might consider making a beach stroll in your neck of the woods part of your routine this time of year, and take your camera, to work your photo magic at an opportune moment.

Yes. The air quality is much better lately ... thankfully.
Yay, rain coming at the end of the week. We'll see what we get.
This is the most recent noaa forecast discussion.

"By Thursday afternoon and evening a pronounced change in the
weather pattern is expected as a broad upper level trough
approaches the region. This system is anticipated to tap into a
plume of moisture over the Pacific with precipitable water values
over 1.5 inches. This moisture will originate from a typhoon
currently developing over the Western Pacific. As this system
approaches it will bring precipitation into northern Sonoma county
Thursday afternoon and evening. While models have fallen into
agreement on this there is still some disagreement with the timing
and intensity of the rainfall for Friday. The Euro (ECMWF) is the
more aggressive of the two models and brings rain as far south as
the Big Sur coast Thursday night while the GFS keep rain changes
north of the Golden Gate. The GFS appears to catch up to the Euro
Friday night as it pushes the main rain band through the region.
The Euro however remains the wetter of the two solutions.

Periods of moderate to locally heavy rain is anticipated Friday
across the region. Heaviest precipitation is expected across the
North Bay. Models indicate there will likely be a break the rain
(GFS) or hit and miss showers (Euro) Saturday on the back side of
the main frontal band. Model solutions vary widely at this point
with the second round of shower that were expected Sunday being
pushed back to Sunday night into Monday. While models struggle
come to a consensus and the timing and intensity of the rain can
be nailed down the forecast will maintain unsettled weather
conditions through the weekend and into early next week."

Gorgeous!!! As much as I want to move away from this area because I've been here most of my life, I'm going to miss the beauty of the Monterey/Santa Cruz coasts.
