Whale watch season in Dana Point is at about the halfway point, continuing through the end of April. I suspect that the whales are doing a lot more watching than the people are — or at least a lot more scrutinous watching.
Gray Whale Season is here and will run through the end of April! Each winter, the Pacific Gray Whales pass by Dana Point, many believe that Dana Point is a landmark on their journey. After spending the summer feeding in the food-rich waters of the arctic, the Grays swim south along the coast to the bays of Baja California, where they mate and nurse their young. Along the way they pass Dana Wharf, where you can witness the annual winter journey. We saw 272 Gray Whales last season!

These excursions are always thrilling and exhilarating. The experience is as filled with awe as everyone describes.
When looking to update your tired old website, don’t just look at other sites in your industry. They all look alike under some belief that all sites in that industry must have some misbegotten resemblance. Don’t believe it! Get inspired by some of the beautiful or cool or wonderful sites on the web. And ask your designer to create something that sets you apart from all the rest.
Here are a handful of sites that I find inspirational. What do you think?
Private Cooking: The site is defined by its gorgeous photography. A very simple and graceful design knows to let these photos shine.
Andrea Mann: Photography is key here, too, but only a single photo becomes both background and frame of this artist site.

Make It Right: Brad Pitt’s very worthwhile New Orleans project uses a website that is informative, colorful, and eyecatching.

Check out the 100 restaurants that were selected to participate. I can think of a few I wish were on the list but overall, it looks like a very decent group. I am sure you will have your own ideas. Restaurant Week menus are posted for each restaurant.
