They're Back

No, I'm not talking about Janet and Patti (they don't get back from Thailand until Thursday), I'm talking about our friends from Alaska. Doug reported seeing them near Molokini island on Saturday and Sunday.

While swimming in the ocean today I saw a manta ray feeding along the bottom. I followed it for a while and it brought me to a second manta ray lazily floating on the surface. Unlike some mantas which are inquisitive, these two kept their distance from me.

Then off in the distance I saw big splashes of water. Humpback whales breaching! Two of them repeatedly jumping out of the water. Unfortunately, they were briskly swimming away so I did not get to see them up close. That's okay, I'm thrilled to know that they are back in the neighborhood.
