Whale season

It's Gray whale season and although the count is low this year at Coal Oil Point it seems to be a bumper year for sea otters. I lived in Santa Barbara about 20 years ago and I never once saw sea otters this far south, now they seem to be regulars. Apparently, until recently, otters that ventured south were removed from the 'no-otter zone'. The government now wants to change this policy and not everyone is delighted.
