Happy Halloween!

I'm down in Portland this week to celebrate my birthday with some family and friends, but from what I hear it sounds like the whales have still been around the islands quite a bit. K-Pod has been around pretty consistently, and Js and Ls showed up yesterday to make it two consecutive years there's been a superpod on my birthday (that I've missed, of course!) Oh well, you just can't see them all, and I've been having a fun time down in the city as well as getting a lot of "mainland" chores done that you just can't do on the island.

This photo is of some pumpkins we carved on the island last week. When we turned all the lights off with candles inside, it was amazing to see that the pumpkins themselves glowed bright, even from behind on the uncarved side! By balancing my camera on the back of a chair with a long exposure time I was able to get a picture that shows how eerie the effect was. I wonder if these pumpkins had a thinner rind than normal? I don't ever remember the pumpkins themselves glowing so much! In any case, I hope everyone has a happy Halloween!!
