Whale season in Hawaii is November through February. V doesn’t like boats, so I enjoyed whale watching with friends.
Whales come here to lose weight, date and have children. Sometimes they are pretty active even though they don’t eat for six months.
I lose steam after about four hours of not eating, but they blow off steam constantly.
With thousands of whales to choose from, I thought I would capture an amazing shot of a whale smiling at me like to the one in the poster.
Most of the time you stare at the sea and see nothing but waves.
Eventually you begin to imagine that whitecaps or undulations might be whales just getting ready to surface, so you keep staring. Then you get tired of staring, and turn to your friends and snap their pictures. Carol caught a great shot of a flipping tail splashing water. I turned away for a second and captured Darrel and Connie against the sun, which I thought was just as magnificent.
I spent most of my time on the right side of the boat, staring at 1:00, which is where most of the activity took place. Then I heard shouts from the other side of the boat, and rushed over there, leaving my perfect viewpoint. About that time the whales at 1:00 surfaced and I got this picture.
Then I moved closer to get a better shot, and got this.
We had a great time, and loved the trip. Manny is going to write about his take later. He learned a lot as well, and made some new friends.
And this was NOT a tall
The end 🙂
