this morning, south of
Santa Cruz. Here are a few of the pictures I took.
The night before we had dinner with former Miamian, Adam Steckley.
He works for the O’Neil Foundation which teaches oceanography to kids.
Five days a week school children board his 65-foot catamaran sailboat for the trip of a lifetime.
As they cruise Monterrey Bay many confess they have never been on a boat or even seen the ocean.
We learned that last month was amazing. For three weeks humpback whales crowded into Santa Cruz harbor to feed.
“They just weren’t surfacing for air," said Adam, “These were huge animals leaping out of the water, gulping millions of tiny fish at a time. Try teaching an ecology lesson with these swimming school buses crashing around you!”
As you might expect, the whales became his lesson.
WIth on office on the beach, it seems to be the perfect job for our young surfer friend.
