The 2009 humpback whale season is wrapping up for me. I'm on the way to the airport shortly.
My last day on the water was a difficult one, with blistering winds and three- to four-metre swells in some areas. But...we found calf number 25, so it was worthwhile.
We named the calf Nofo, which carries two meanings. Nofo is one of our best friends here, and Nofo'a means "good bye" in Tongan.
It'll take me some time to write up my Week 5 summary, as I'll be in transit for the next few days.
Meanwhile, here's a photo of me with the film crew from RTHK. I was doing my best to act naturally...but the big fuzzy thing sneaking up on me made me a bit nervous.
