I haven't blogged in a year. Deal with it. The other day the kids and I went down to Percival Landing to play and throw a football around. As it started to get dark we walked along the boardwalk following a seal that was playing in the shallow water. We walked all the way down to Port Plaza and out onto the dock. We lost the seal, but a gray whale popped up out of nowhere. It was pretty amazing. Gray whales don't often make their way to the farthest reaches of the South Sound. Usually they are either lost or sickly, but after sending pics into Cascadia Research, they determined that the whale was healthy and just adventurous. I really love that playing in the park downtown can turn into whale watching in this town.
