It is once again time to reflect on how absolutely perfect Maui is. It is so perfect in fact that mammals come here by the thousands each winter to avoid the cold of their normal environment. I’m not talking about some blue haired geriatrics either… i’m talking about my favorite cetacean, the Megaptera novaeangliae, or as it is more commonly referred as, the Humpback Whale.
The Red Queen and I have gone on a Pacific Whale Foundation hosted tour of the waters off Maui in search of these huge lovable whales each of the last two years and again this year, we were not disappointed.
Let me tell you, these fuckers are huge. Like oprah winfrey huge. We’re talking bahdunkadunk huge.
I have tons of pictures, but this has to be my favorite. It shows a female and her primary escort. The pair danced and sang for us like Sonny & Cher. It was a great outing and perhaps might require a return visit. How was your friday?
