We only got wet

On Saturday, we took out the Coast Guard' s morale boat. We were going to try and see some whales, but we only got wet and cold. The ocean was choppy, and the wind was really blowing. I am glad we bought the water proof housing for the video camera. The kids would laugh their heads off every time we got hit with more water, Dar was grinning from ear to ear, and I never let go of the handle near where I was sitting. Darwin actually did see two whales, but none of the rest of us did. We might try and go out again....hopefully on a calmer day. I didn't think that we would be able to hear anything on the video, since the microphone was sealed tightly inside the waterproof housing, but some sound did get through. Enjoy watching us get soaked.

You always have so many fun things to do. We are trying to plan some family vacations for the summer. But none of them are whale watching in Hawaii. Enjoy

I am very surprised at the good qulaity of the picture considering it was in a housing???? It looked like a tiny spot of water got on the lens right near the end but it reminded me of the ride I took in Juneau to go halibut fishing! Mombus

That looks like so much fun! I can't wait till we go to Tonga. I'm sure its a little like Hawaii. Looks like you guys are going to miss it there...
