Over Mother’s Day weekend, my wife and I took our son for his first boat ride, a whale watching expedition along the Southern Pacific Coast leaving from Marina Del Ray and heading north past Santa Monica and up to Malibu before swinging home in a three hour counterclockwise arc across the stunning blue waters of the mighty Pacific. Mighty indeed, as several folks aboard our boat discovered, heeding the first mate’s advice to “swallow your pride and puke over the side.”  While the thought of puking for two hours might seem dissuasive, the trip was great, a chance to really to get a perspective of the LA coastline. Though it must also be mentioned that we didn’t see any whales, although we did however see schools of dolphin, including a baby out with his momma, scores of pelicans and other assorted water fowl, as well as sea otters and an odd creature I had never heard of before called a Sunfish . All in all a great way to spend the morning, get some cool fresh air, and see the boundless blue beauty of sunny LA.
