Report Details

It was another gorgeous day on mile 11. Sea lions bellowing from their usual spot near House Rock. Walking south on the Coast Trail I passed 6 people. Very high traffic. When I got to the parking lot at Cape Ferrelo - oh my gosh! The place was packed, no empty spaces. Whale watching was definitely being spoken here. Of course the great weather and the holidays contributed to the crowds. A couple dozen folks were milling about, asking questions of the fellow on 'duty',peering out to sea, and just enjoying. I've never seen mile 11 so appreciated.
