I’m going to be attending the Mendocino Whale Festival this coming weekend. I’m really looking forward to it. I based Whale Frolic in MURDER AT THE MANSION on it. It made me think of my trips to what I call whale camp in San Ignacio Lagoon. I’ve been three times. It’s the most amazing place I’ve ever been to. I’ve touched whales more than once. The picture in this post shows me touching a young whale.
