Belly Scratching




My husband called me so excited this afternoon... look what he spotted scratching it's belly on the gravel at the beach! It's a bowhead whale!!! I've seen a whale here and there but never this close! I've been told by locals that the whales migrating by will come close to shore and scratch their belly's on the gravel. I am so excited for Andrew to see such a site! He happened to be driving back to the office when this photo op became available. I was stuck at home without a ride down to the beach. No worries... I am sure I will have a chance to see one of these belly itching sessions in person some day.

Coooool! I've always wanted to see a whale, but never did. You'd think I could see a bunch of humpbacks since they migrate right through Hawaii, but it's just one of those things where I want to do it but never go. Maybe I should grab a boat with Jen one migrating season, lol!

Awesome pictures! I called my kids over right away to share the photos. They couldn't believe how cool it is that I have a friend who lives where you can witness this in person. :D
