My buddy, Ryan, accompanied me on my first deep-water swim of the season this morning.
At one point he asked, "What's that?" as he pointed at my feet. A Sting Ray was attempting to mate with my swim fins! Totally freaky. When I pulled back and took a photo, it dove for the depths and quickly disappeared into the gloom below. Weird.
A little later a large female Humpback whale surfaced with a splash next to Ryan, swam under him, then surfaced again on his other side only feet away. Wow! What a day.
I finally found a moment to dig through photos from my trip to Kipahulu with the in-laws. I was surprised to find several that I liked, including this one of my sister-in-law crossing the stream below Waimoku falls.
I also liked this reflection I saw in one of my neighbor's pools this morning.
I'm a guy who likes to get out into the ocean several times each week and interact with the creatures I encounter there. I often swim with dolphins, sharks, rays, and whales. Check out my photos on my website: www.TropicalLight.com
