Ojo de Liebre- more than whales


Yes- the whales are memorable. But many of my favorite images from this lagoon are of the sky and shoreline. A few examples:

1) Low tide: a group of whale watchers, walking in from the end of the pier (February, 2015- before the new dock was constructed)

2) Sunset, near the inlet

3) Rainbows, palapas, campers

4) rainbow3

5) Raylamapgo!

6) Stormy skies

7) Sunset

that was the best storm I have weathered at the lagoon and it was awesome....and so cool you were there to share it with!

You are so right that there is so much more magic than just whales there...the birds are amazing, the coyotes entertaining as are the interesting stories from the world travelers who camp there...not to mention the insane sunrised and sunsets

The camping cabins at the lagoon are another reason to make the trek there. It would be an awesome experience to veg out for a few days there.

My favorite is the last one - large, set on a cliff over looking an inlet. You can spot whales from there - hiking trails, beachcombing. There are some palapas that offer shelter from the wind closer to the panga launch area and restaurant. The camping sites are specifically designated.

How are you posting pictures without the hash mark from trash your photosbucket?

Is there a reason we are de-emphasising whales.
Is it that bad of a whale year?
I saved these whales once you know...

1) Don't use Photobucket... I have shared so many times how easy and free Postimages.org is.

2) Pay the minimum fee for your Photobucket account. I think the watermark is for those who did not go from the free level to the pay level ($50/ year?)

I am asking because it could be a result of climate change...
And maybe time for another "Save the Whales" movement.
Maybe the low and sick whale count is like a really big "Canary in a Coalmine"...

Save the whales...
Save your children...

Welcome Adriennelynn! I have not been to the part of Baja specifically, so someone else will have to chime in or you can send a private message to shari (the expert) by using the U2U button right at the bottom of her message.
