We heard some whales had ventured into the bay off of Avila Beach to feed so we spent part of the day there.

It turned out to be good timing because the next day the pier got closed indefinitely due to instability. Some sea worms have been munching on the pier, causing structural stability problems, which became apparent when everyone heard about the whales and flooded the pier to get a look.

It was tough to get a good photo of the whales, because they were on the other side of the bay, but it was still cool to see them occasionally stick their heads out of the water.
