New Year’s Day with CRC20899 – 1/1/24

New Year’s Day was incredible, to say the least. I was feeling a little down so I decided to go to Owens beach and spend the day at the point. I knew there was a humpback in the area so I figured that that was the best place to reset my mind.

Lordy lordy, there were soooo many people there due to the polar plunge. Lol I felt a bit overwhelmed by the crowd to be honest; I totally forgot about the polar plunge that day. I just put my head down and walked as far away from as many people as I could, to be one with nature and relax my mind. Once I got close to the point, where there were no people, I let out a huge sigh of relief. Almost instantaneously I heard the POWERFUL whoooosh of the humpbacks breath. He/she was literally 20 yards from shore right behind me. The gasp that I gasped y’all, the gasp that I gasped.😭 I wasn’t even looking for the humpback, I was just trying trying to get to the point; I felt so much peace come over me in that moment and thinking about it still gives me goosebumps.


Shortly after that happened, more and more people showed up and I’m so happy they were able to witness the events that unfolded. I love sharing amazing whale moments with people, especially people that have never seen them before. ❤️❤️❤️

To make it even better my longest whale friends Amber, Ashley, and Jolena were able to make it over too! We all have different schedules so it’s not often we’re all together on the beach; them being there made this day even more special then it already was. The juvenile humpback stayed with us all day at the point. He/she was playing with the sea lions and totally doing ballet. 🥰

Everyone on the beach was completely silent as we watched in awe. I can’t think of a better way to start the new year. I had never seen a humpback close before and they have earned a huge place in my heart. What. A. Day. I love you CRC20899.
