What looked like a large whale went swimming by Topanga this afternoon. Although when I saw a huge fin sticking out of the water, it looked like it could have been a very large dorsal fin at first glance. :drowning:

Did one dive when I was in the galapagos. Told our guide that I wanted to see hammerheads. He took us to this pinnacle sticking out of the surface about 20'. I was the only certified diver so it was just the two of us. A galapagos shark swam by us immediately as we dropped down. Those things are thick! Saw white tipped reef sharks, which are common, and when we were at 70', he pointed up above us. I looked up and saw silhouettes of hammerheads, about 8-10' circling the pinnacle. Worth the $100 he charged for the dive. 3 species of shark in one dive.

My buddy caught a breach on camera just outside the lineup when we surfed North Torrey Pines on Friday morning.
