Humpback Whale Breach

current song: Need You Now by Lady Antebellum

decided to take it easy. walked -athlon running path. as friend Aria and I approached Magic Island wall facing Aloha Tower... saw huge spout near drifting vessel. as we walked towards end of wall... spotted another spout... near 2nd drifting vessel. 2 whales in area. coolness. relaxed and talked story. multiple breaches, spouts, and surface sightings. awesome. activity far out in horizon.

lost track of 1st whale. perhaps only 1 fast whale in area. also thought that perhaps calf breaching. then again... activity far out... could have been huge adult. again... multiple breaches, spouts, and surface sightings.

walked towards Waikiki side. nuthin'.

2nd lap... watched sun set. witnessed green flash. awesome.

walked towards end of wall facing Aloha Tower. relaxed and talked story. no whale activity 2nd time around. walked towards Waikiki side. no activity there too.
