Rude Behavior

Say it isn't so! The teasing has already begun.

The Maui Pink Cap Swimmers dove into wonderfully clear, calm waters this morning for our weekly ocean swim. Yes, it was definitely chilly and the main group swam down and back without much hesitation. Because the Humpback Whales are known to have returned to Maui, us slower swimmers kept to deeper water in hopes of an encounter.

We were vigilant but didn't see anything but turtles and fish. Not a glimpse of anything bigger. Upon return to shore the faster swimmers told us that they watched a group of whales swim right past us.

I swear that several times last year I was approached and followed by whales, and they intentionally kept just out of my sight. I don't know how many times I was told from people on shore that I had been surrounded by whales which I never saw. And now, the whales are only recently returned, and they are already teasing me. I may develop a complex.
