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.
