I ran across this photo and thought this was pretty neat with the double rainbow, the beautiful coast and of course Buster in the picture…
I just saw the dolphins one time but it was great. They came by the point that we are on in their inimitable style, languidly cutting through the water heading for who knows where. Of course catching photographs was a real challenge (did I mention that I do not possess a telephoto lens?) but it was great to see them gracing us with their presence. In the tme that Debbie and I have been here so far, I have only seen a school of dolphins one time and then only got one photo which you can see above. I got a few other photos which show fins that could be just as easily sharks or dolphins. Out of respect for the dolphins, I am not publishing them here. My abilities as a photographer should not reflect on the grace of nature. I did however spent about 30 minutes enjoying the effort of trying capture their images.
We watched whales this evening. It was around 4 pm and the sun make taking photos hard- not to mention that I don’t have a telephoto lens for my camera. But we saw tons of whale spouts from two groups of whales and quite a few belly rolls, fin flips and even a couple of big tail flips. I had seen whale spouts before but this was a much longer display. They seemed to be hanging around off the spit of land where we were.
We went up to the Valle Gaudelupe today, with Debbie’s father who is here visiting. It was an incredible day, a little chill in the air but brilliant blue sky. We visited one of the most well know wine makers in the area- L.A. Cetto wines. They had wine tasting and we tried a few of their wines and generally enjoyed the incredible ambiance. It was also interesting in that most of the places we go are 80% American ex-pats, but here in this winery there were tons of visitors, all locals. It was obviously a fun time for all, and they did regular tours of the winery showing how the wine was produced. And of course we had a nice time too.
