Visitors at the Redondo Beach Pier in California got a whale of a show on March 30. Literally.
It was like spotting a celebrity - but so much better.
The extra-special sighting? A young Pacific gray whale who was close to the shoreline and frolicking in the ocean having a great time.
Definitely not something beachgoers see every day, the whale had everyone mesmerized as he played, splashed and fed along the ocean floor. It was difficult to tell who was having more fun: the onlookers or the whale.
