Gray whale seems to like Marina del Rey

That gray whale continues to hang out around the breakwater in Marina del Rey, with no signs of moving on. Photographer Kristofor Brown captured this shot of someone perhaps getting a little too close.

Somewhat surprisingly, the whale had not been given a name -- or at least, not a name that sticks. RMG News reported that the whale was swimming back out of the marina last night and that a man jumped into the channel to swim along side. The whale has been swimming in and out of the channel for almost two weeks.
