Whale watching

Santa Barbara is now in whale season, i.e. whales give birth in the South near Mexico, swim up to Alaska and pass the Californian coast, including Santa Barbara. They are not faster than a walking human being, so that's like us hiking to Alaska from California! We tried to see the whale today, but I am not convinced that this is a whale:

Nor are these:

Thus, we saw dolphins and sea lions and some small fish in the water. There are also seals around, but sea lions have got larger fins.

Fortunately, we were allowed to re-use our tickets since we didn't see whales :) But I am already happy about the dolphins.
