I didn’t expect to see whales when checking the surf, but these are the wins worth waking up early for. Here’s a family of grey whales feeding just yards from my tent. They’re so majestic and awe-inspiring to watch. What really got me was the entourage of dolphins and seals dancing, racing and picking at their food scraps. It's moments like these that instantaneously change your mood. Mother nature’s so beautiful. Enjoy.
