The days are short, dark, and cold right now.  Why NOT head south for a while, especially if you can get there under your own power?  That question is for whales, not people. 

But people can enjoy the sight of whales heading for warmer waters, right now on the coast of our region.  Oregon State Parks celebrates Winter Whale Watch right now.  Luke Parsons from the Whale Watching Center in Depoe Pay visits.
