Last Sunday J and I went on an 11 hour tour and the seas did get rough.  We joined Debi Shearwater on a Shearwater Journeys pelagic trip around Half Moon Bay.  The trip departed at 7am out of Pillar Point Harbor where we first checked out the jetties for shorebirds.  Since the sun had just risen, there was a warmth to the light giving the white Elegant Terns an orange glow.

We were heading home from Monterey, CA looking for a Black Skimmer reported in the area around Seabright State Beach in Santa Cruz County, CA.  We didn't see the Skimmer but there were 2000+ Elegant Terns on the beach in 2 flocks.
