Bay Area resident Greg Shovlin was out with his wife when (in his own words) this is what happened: "My wife suggested we hang out at Baker Beach. As we were climbing up the many steps leading us away from the beach a man told us a whale was breaching in the distance. So we quickly headed back down the stairs to watch the show. This humpback whale breached a little less than 10 times next to a small boat." The following pictures tell the rest of the story.
