A Whale of a Tail

This past weekend we went whale watching.  Whale season is from December - March in Hawaii when the Humpbacks migrate from Alaska to breed.  You can actually see them off shore at times from the beaches.  W e actually saw a couple on our drive to the harbor for our whale watching trip.  Our tour was at sunset so it was beautiful being on the water during that time of day.  The whales were a major bonus!  We saw a group of 2 repeatedly...we just kind of followed them around and they gave us a nice show even though we had trouble capturing it with the camera at the right moments.  It was awesome experiencing the majesty of God's creation.  We really have got to see and do a lot here in Hawaii.  The kids were so excited and Anna kept saying "Just like of Diego!".  Ah, what would we do without Dora and Diego?

Mommy and the boys.

Anna and her friend Gracie.

The best family photo we could manage.

One of the best photos we could get.  I just loved see ing the tails come out of the water.


  1. Looks like fun! And not a bad family picture at all.

  2. Oh whale watching, that is something I should try in New England. Looks like you all had a good time!

  3. Sounds like fun! And much warmer than off Cape Ann.

  4. Was that pic from the last sighting? The pics I got were good, but really dark. I'm going to try to play around with them in photoshop next week when I'm off work. I was surprised I actually got anything at all! But, if you zoom in really close, you can see!
