INSTANT VACATION! Whale Watching at Bodega Head on the Sonoma Coast

filed under: Wine Country Living posted on February 15th, 2010

Yesterday afternoon I took advantage of the first sunny day in a while and drove to the town of Bodega Bay with a friend. We went to pick daffodils on Bay Hill Road, taking advantage of some of the first sites of spring–all the yellow flowers starting to bloom, from daffodils to mustard to gorse. I love the variety of Sonoma County, and I never feel it so much as on a little jaunt to the coast. INSTANT VACATION!

This time of year there is an extra good reason to visit the coast. From January to April, if you are lucky you may spot Pacific gray whales as they make their way both north and south between Alaska, where they do their feeding, to the lagoons of Baja Mexico where they give birth to their babies. Here is a link to details. You can find out about volunteers who will be happy to help guide your whale watching.
