A few weeks ago my family and I were on vacation in Maui. One of the things we experienced was seeing whales.

I was able to record some awesome video of these unbelievably large creatures in the water that were following by large boat. But now I have this picture at the top of this story to share with you.

Credit for the camera work goes to my friend Doug Roy. Doug and his wife, Sherrill, are from Canada.

Doug and Sherrill have a place in the same condo complex that we are in. We will look forward to being with them again next year.

Now this will get your attention when a creature like this swims up near your boat. An adult whale is about the size of a school bus.
