Left the world of sales/marketing to raise my 4 energetic boys. I homeschool. I do natural birth. I cook, play piano, scuba dive. I love exploring new places, especially with my family.

Whale Watching Season

Whale watching season is quickly approaching! Witnessing the great migration of approximately 20,000 gray whales from the Bering Sea feeding grounds to the Baja California lagoons is an incredible experience.  I went with one of my sons last year, and watching the whales cruising along was thrilling.  You can read about my experience here.
