August 18, 2010 - Whale Sharks


A lot of people ask me what we do out here, don’t we get bored, don’t we need more stimulation of the mind, etc.….here’s what we did this Wednesday morning before breakfast.





Jake swam with and touched (not read about) whale sharks today, before age 5, something that took my husband, an underwater photographer by profession, 40 years to experience.
They say a picture is worth a thousand words.  I think that fits here…
(by the way, I have to start giving picture credits here.  Many of the topside photos were taken by our good friend Scott on Ulalena.  The underwater ones were of course taken by Andy.)



We have tons of pictures but this internet cafe is kicking my tail.  I'll load the rest in a week or so when I get back to mom's house.

It was truely amazing. Andy stayed in the water for HOURS...still trying to get that one great shot. Evidently, they hang out in Bahia de los Angeles during the summer. We've since seen them every day. Someone said there's some sort of activity on the floor of the sea that provides an abundance of food and that's why they llike that place.
