  A Blue Whale
Mike Miller, supervisor, Mapping and Data Department, Public Works Engineering, Eugene, Oregon, and his two daughters, Sunny and Lacey, went on a one-week sea kayaking excursion to the islands east of Loreto, Baja, Mexico. While paddling one day, they crossed paths with the pictured blue whale—which was pretty impressive! His Esri T-shirt proved to be the cherry on top of a perfect day.
