We spent Sunday on an Island Packers boat out of Ventura, whale watching. We saw a couple of humpback whales and two gray whales also. We cruised past Anacapa, and were out for a couple of hours. Last year's whale watch was disappointing, so it was great to see quite a few this year. The Channel Islands National Park is a wonderful place to visit. I've been to every island that's open to the public. There are a couple that the military keep closed. Amazing to think that pygmy mammoths once inhabited these islands.
