For Thanksgiving this year, M & D helped me get out to California to see the sister unit (Non-profits don't pay all that well..). While Southern California isn't really my cup-o-tea, I had a fabulous time with Messy. She's currently working on her Masters in Evolutionary Biology at San Diego State University. She studies whales... Fin whales (Balaenoptera sp.) to be exact. More on that later.
Check out the harbor seals (Phoca vitulina) Messy took me to see.
