Two good whale watching boats are Princess and Sanctuary cruises. Princess is out of the Wharf and I believe Sanctuary runs out of Moss Landing which is about 20 minutes north of Monterey.

Here is link to some resent whale footage: www.ksbw.com
Click on the story about the whales in the lower right hand corner and the next page will have links to lots of whale footage.
Thank you, thank you!!!! I am THRILLED!! We have so many people praying that my Mom will get to see whales & I think she'll get to.

I hope you have a great trip out on the Bay. You never know what mother nature has planned, but it looks like you'll get quite the show.

Unhappy

Thank you for all the prayers & vacation advice. We made it back home Tuesday. (We got to see TONS of whales!) My mom is in the hospital with liver failure. She has jaundice & is experiencing severe bilirubin (spelling??) Oncologist said liver is so covered w/ cancer that prayer is the only help. She suspects it may have entered her brain. Her kidneys are "borderline" so she's not ordering MRI or CT scan for a couple of days.

My request is that people don't just pray for her healing. Please pray for God's Will to be done. If she has fulfilled her purpose on earth & God sees fit to take her, I pray He will quickly, so she'll be out of pain. I want her to stay, but not if she's suffering.

I'm so thankful for the trip we took & the memories we've made. Thank you to all of you for taking this journey with me. Life will never be the same once she's gone. She's lived with us since her diagnosis (the week before Thanksgiving 2009) and we've only grown closer through the months. She's my best friend & my stomach sickens at the thought of her leaving us. I will give God all the glory for taking her home because she has made such a difference in this world! There is NO telling how many people will experience eternity in Heaven because of her love for Jesus Christ.

God bless, Angela
