In Pursuit

This photo represents how most people on Maui get to see Humpback Whales . . . from shore. On my walk this morning I followed this baby whale (or was it following me?) as it breached its way from Kihei to Makena with mama and escort in tow.

When they reached the main resorts on Wailea Beach a rush of rental watercraft set out in pursuit. Whales are not slow creatures and the paddling set never quite caught up to them.
