Anchored in San Luis harbor.
Greeted by a whale upon our safe arrival in San Luis. As we approached the harbor it was still blowing around 30 knots and I was trying hard to spot the channel marker when I spotted what I thought was a rock that then turned into a huge whale tail. I then saw the whale surface a second time blow twice then sound (dive to the bottom with the tail lifted out of the water). Very cool. Glad to be in a nice calm anchorage for the night after the vigorous wind and seas today.
