After taking some photos up in Forestville a few weeks ago - for a project I will be sharing with you soon - I headed over to Jenner to check out the coast and walk on the beach. The Russian River converges with the ocean here, and there were seals, tons of birds, and whales. It was amazing. I have been a diver for 12 years, and seen all kinds of ocean life including dolphins, but I have never seen a whale, so even from far away it felt like an extraordinary experience. It felt like a blessing. It was bitchin'.
