Foto Friday: Fisherman on a rock.
The other evening, an hour before sunset, I went for a walk on an east side Kauai beach. Ostensibly, I was looking for a Hawaiian monk seal with a possible infection to his face, after a fishing hook had been removed (by and approved and permitted team from NOAA) from his jaw a week or so ago. I didn't find the monk seal, but I did find great frigatebirds flying overhead. And nene. And red-footed boobies. Off-shore, several whales breached and pec- or tail-slapped as an outrigger canoe passed in the foreground. A couple of surfers had figured that the north/northwest swell was wrapping around the island in such a way that an unusual surfbreak would be just about the right size for them. And a fisherman cast his poll into breaking waves. There really are few better ways to end the day.
