TOO close for comfort

Well whats going on with this planet anyway? 2 stray, wounded whales 24 1/2 miles from me and I'm a long way from the ocean! They're 90 miles from the ocean turn off the low freq stuff Navy, you're confusing the nav systems of these magnificent mammals! Delta and Dawn are their names, been all the rage with the media the past week, oops sorry I'm taking up too much room here adding to the Clutter, sorry DG

Additional clutter

Remember HUmphrey the Humpbacked Whale? he did the same thing in the same place about 10-15 years ago. How did they convince him to return to the Sea?

update; Both whales still hanging around Rio Vista bridge, appear to be agitated according to officials. I would be too if someone was banging a pipe all day next to my ears. I may take the 25 mile drive and try to get a few pics today.

sunday evening update

Today the whales decided to take a swim toward the ocean. At dusk they had swam approx 19 miles down stream from Rio Vista where they have been hanging around for a week. This now puts them in salty water! Which is a good thing. DG

Headed in the right direction

Go West young whale!
The 2 whales were kinda stalled around Benicia yesterday. They were breaching and looked to be having a great time. This morning the local news whirley bird spotted then in the Casquinez straight, water depth up to 100 feet and salty. Looks like they have about 15 miles to the Golden Gate Bridge. While the duo seems to know what they are doing the "experts" still seem to be somewhat bewildered. lol DG

Never underestimate the intelligence of animals. Sometimes its just the experts that don't know what is going on!

It is good to hear they are headed back out. Whales are such awesome creatures!

Getting close

Delta and Dawn have been spotted around Tiburon, That puts them about 5 miles from the Golden Gate. They appear to be on a mission now! The smell of Freedom!
