One of my buddies, Alex, took me on an incredible flight down the Oregon Coast to Cape Arago/ Simpson Reef by Charleston OR on Sunday June 23rd. We took off out of Newport and headed south. Three grey whales were sighted along with two dolphin/porpoises and numerous sea lions. Here are some of the slightly blurry shots.
Loaded up and ready to go.

Simpson Reef. A local hang-out for California Sea Lions and Elephant Seals. Seals are visible on crescent of sand on right side.
Seals visible on sand bar towards lower left center. Kind of hard to see…
More rocky coastline in that area…
