This weekend rundown sponsored by Rocky Point Best
They’re back! That’s right, the whales are back! On February 2nd, Oscar “Whale Whisperer” Preciado of Del Mar Charters let us all know his crew, along with photographer Tony Ballesteros, had spotted whales just about 10 miles off shore. A quick chat with Eco Fun Rentals just today informed us their most recent whale-watching tour was replete with glimpses of whales, dolphins, and all kinds of birds! It’s going to be a fun February! Let’s get to it and run down the weekend!

So rather than Carnaval (so as not to get mixed up with the religous calendar), let’s just call it a grand fiesta set in a carnavalesque atmosphere. We’ll keep you updated as we’re able.
