Whale of a Day in Marina Del Rey
The California Gray Whale is still hanging around the entrance area of Marina Del Rey. It's been here for a week now. There are quite a few people at the end of the jetty watching the whale as it feeds in at the entrance to the marina. After I left today, my friend Ted Soqui of the LA Weekly got a photo of some knucklehead petting the whale, breaking a federal law that protects marine animals. check out Ted's pix here A fisherman caught this shark in that same area of the jetty today.
