I had a wonderful time at the Mendocino Whale Festival. My husband made a slideshow with whale pictures from our trips to San Ignacio Lagoon. People really enjoyed it. I showed it at one of Saturday’s events and then had a “meet and greet” at the local bookstore on Sunday for my Kelly Jackson mystery series. MURDER AT THE MANSION has Whale Frolic in it which is based on this event. I met a lot of nice people. THEN something happened I’d never experienced before–hail in Mendocino! Luckily it was late afternoon and the events were over.
