A few photos from yesterday evening: whale breach, sunset and Judy coming back from a walk on the beach.

This morning we went on a windy, choppy, fantastic whale watch! Really, Karen and I both enjoy a boat ride when the waves are high and crashing on deck, though most people do not 🙂 We saw a lot of male humpbacks battling for you-know-what—spectacular behaviors to watch. When I thought it couldn’t get better our naturalist found a large pod of Hawaiian spinner dolphins and they surrounded our boat.

After lunch we walked to a park in Lahaina where the Mo’olele canoe is being built (15 years in the making!). It’s scheduled to be launched this May and will be a living classroom to teach kids and adults traditional Polynesian wayfinding and voyaging skills. It is one beautiful boat.
