Actually, the place is Turtle Rock, about a mile off the coast north of Trinidad, Calif. Covered with sealions, jealous of their new pups at this time of year, and protected by a serious ocean surge. (©Ted Pease 2009)

Parker Creek

About eight miles out of Trinidad, a flock of albatross swooped in to land by the boat, one at a time, until there were more than 20. A happy day at sea—is there any other kind? (©Ted Pease 2009)

42 lbs. That’s the result for the first try at halibut since dad caught one by accident from the skiff in Maine in 1965. (©Jim Gullet 2009)
