The similarity to some of the classic Loch Ness Monster pics is wonderful. Earlier in the day some folks on the beach pointed out what they said was a whale at the north side of the beach. I saw what looked like a baby whale fin flapping out in the kelp, so I excitedly ran and got my camera and hustled up the beach to try and get a pic. My baby whale turned out to be a diver's flipper. I laughed. Later, I saw a grebe, lifted my binocs, and, in classic grebe fashion, caught a great look at some post-dive ripples. "Well," I thought to myself, "at least there's a nice whale in the background there. Hm, whale. WHALE!"
