Aloha to the Whales

It’s been pretty busy. We caught a spectacular sunset Sunday evening—from our backyard. One of the U.S. observatories is only about 20 miles or so away on the top of the mountain, so that gives a hint of the vantage point we have about halfway up the mountain. We also did some whale watching, and spotted quite a few on their trek back to Alaska. The guides on the boat dropped a special mike into the ocean that allowed us to hear the whales singing while they swam. It was simply amazing to hear it. I recorded some of it on my iPhone and I’m trying to figure out how to post the sound track.


Anyway, we have some photos posted of sunsets, whales and the shoreline as seen from the whaleboats.
