Riding My Wake

This mom, baby and escort swam by me just after I passed the one-hour mark of my ocean swim this morning. Following behind them was a group of kayakers. One of them told me that these three Humpback Whales had been following me for some time. I'm guessing the whales finally realized how slow I was swimming and had to give up trying to draft in my slipstream.


  1. HI Don
    Most interested in your experiences with dolphin. Eku, a dolphin, is the best friend of my protagnist in my historical novel, Wai-nani, High Chiefess of Hawaii. I did a lot of research on dolphin behavoir to make sure the interactions between species was realistic.
    Come to my site anc check out what I'm up to. You may want to do a little cross-prom with me.
