Sea Hunt

Yes, I was out in search of large marine animals again this morning. The sun was shining, the water was gloriously clear, and relatively calm and warm. A great day for a very long swim which led me into a group of whales for an extended period. It was perfect except for the tiny glitch of my camera not working. By the time I got it fixed the whales had moved on. As usual, the water was cloudy near the whales even though it was crystal clear near shore.

I was fascinated by two spear fishers near shore. They would dive down to the bottom and lie there in wait for a fish to come by. There is no way I can hold my breath for thirty seconds, and these guys were down for up to two minutes at a time. Wow.
