5/4 - Quad Pod ... It was dense fog until late in the trip, with a few sucker holes with sun pouring down. There was just enough wind to entice a few kite-boarders. The coastal waters have turned a rich green-brown with the Spring bloom. It was a good single trip and here is the story:
12 noon ..... Heading out of the Harbor on radar does not happen very often. Such was the auspicious start to our excursion. We ran the kelp highway west as far as Isla Vista without seeing any spouts. There were spots along the highway with half-mile or more visibility and some solar warmth, but at IV we encountered a wall of dense stratus with no hope of seeing whales or kelp in it. Captain Dave turned the Condor Express around and re-traced his path while running east with the wind at our...

5/2 - Don't miss them .... Lobero Live presents Capitol Steps ... tonight! ... No one in the headlines is safe from the side-splitting satire of the Capitol Steps, the only group in Washington attempting to be funnier than Congress. This troupe of former Congressional staffers travels the country satirizing the very people and places that once employed them. Now in their 30th year, the Cap Steps continue to tour the U.S. presenting their unique brand of witty partisan mockery directly to their constituents. “When it comes to satire,” says the Washington Post, “you haven’t seen the real thing until you have been to the Capitol Steps.” ...

5/2 - Santa Barbara coastal whales ... Mild weather and good crowds had the Condor Express running three excursions out of Santa Barbara today. Here are the details:
9 am ..... One gray whale mother and calf pair were located and followed for a while as they went about their trek to their feeding grounds in Alaska. After the gray whales, Captain Dave and his Whale Scout, Auggie, turned their sights offshore and quickly located 2 humpback whales heading west with 10 minute down times. Good tail flukes were seen by all, and one of the pair was very large.
12 noon ..... After a trip along the kelp superhighway up as far as More Mesa, the Condor Express again turned offshore. Right away a very small, solo humpback whale was seen. It was a humpback we saw a few weeks ago...
5/2 - Tonight ... Yuja Wang, piano, at The Granada Theatre ... Lauded for her prodigious technique, the 28-year-old Chinese-born pianist Yuja Wang has been praised for her authority over the most complex technical demands of the repertoire and the depth of her musical insight, as well as her fresh interpretations and charismatic stage presence.

A past recipient of the Gilmore Young Artist Award and the Avery Fisher Career Grant, Wang astounds everyone who sees her perform “fully in her element… she [takes] off like a rocket, all glitter and rhythmic sass” (Los Angele...
