Spent rest of daytime being lazy messing about the village making few friends. Just passing time daydreaming in the beauty of nature was fun enough.

Then I had to remind myself about the “purpose”. I could stretch just a little further into the southern part of island I haven’t tried yet. I geared up with minimum equipment with my music and helmet on.

I rode again to the end of State Route 241. Then I walked down the path to Omoto Beach.

By the time I got there, it was already near sunset. I didn’t look too good a spot and I only found few squids.

But then there was surprise. Too shame that I couldn’t capture that on my camera. Family of humpback whales was passing by with male making impressive jump and dive.

I should have brought a binocular rather than fly rod…
