Once we had arrived in Hong Kong after our 3-hour flight from Singapore, we had to immediately get into a queue that would eventually dovetail into a single line for the purpose of going through security....even though we had been within security since the security process in Singapore. Once we got through this security and began boarding our plane for LAX from Hong Kong, we had to place our carry-on bags on a table and open them so that security personnel could plunder through them. THEN, we could finally get on the plane.

The beautiful "bird" that would fly us from Hong Kong to Los Angeles

We went through immigration and customs at LAX, and didn't have too long a wait before boarding our flight to San Francisco. I took the above photo once our plane had lifted from the tarmac and headed out over the Pacific before turning north toward San Francisco -- "Home" is in sight! :-)

Less than a minute later, I looked down over the waters of the Pacific and saw what I thought might be a school of porpoises (porpoi??). I took a picture immediately, but it wasn't until the plane moved a little farther and I could look back at "whatever" that I could see what appeared to be a very large group of kayakers.
