Interview with Kai

Kai, where are you now?

I’m in the Pearl Islands.

How did you like swimming with the Humpback Whales yesterday? Tell us about it.

It was good but all I saw was the tail when I was underwater. It was REALLY close.

How close were you to the whales?

Really close, like 10 feet away from the dinghy.

How many whales in the pod did you see?

About 15

Were you scared?


What kind of shells have you been collecting?

Scallops, limpets, tiny trivias and lots of coral.

Yes, and lots of pink and purple shells from the pink shell beach in Isla Bayoneta. How about pearls? This area used to have tons of pearls, one huge one that went to the King of Spain and eventually ended up on Elizabeth Taylor’s neck. Have you found any pearls?

We got 1 mini pearl which we found in an oyster Daddy found.

What’s your favorite ice cream store in Panama City?


Oh, the fabulous one in the Old City. Yes, that’s my favorite, too. I think Oma the ice cream connoisseur in our family, would agree. It might be the best ice cream we’ve ever had!

Have you seen the new Harry Potter movie? What did you think? What was your favorite part?

I thought it was good.

What have you been reading lately?

Percy Jackson and the Olympians, that’s my favorite series I’ve read lately.

Hi Kai, Swimming with 15 whales sounds pretty scary (but wonderful) to me. I'll bet you'll NEVER forget that as long as you live. Keep looking for that big, beautiful pearl. I'll bet you'll be the lucky one to find it.
Love, Memaw

It took me more than seven years to turn our blog into a hard covered bound book. At first, I was leery of wrapping up our adventure because...
