Kodiak's Whale Fest 2011

We've just returned from travelling in the Southwest. Got to get a little sunshine sometime, you know.

So we missed out on the 15th annual Kodiak Whale Fest. It is about 2 weeks when the whole city gets excited about the return of the Gray Whales to our waters. Lots of lectures, educational movies, hikes to points to see the whales, and even art shows related to sea life.

Take a gander at the reported whale sightings:

Here is this year's emblem:

See you here next year, for the 2012 Whale Fest!
