signIt's Tuesday morning here in Tonga, and I'm preparing to head out on the water for the first time this year.

In contrast to last season, there are many positive omens. The weather seems stable (though the wind has picked up a bit), everyone I've spoken with has had spotted whales and had good interaction. Two reliable sources independently indicated that there are four calfs already. In short, everything looks good.

Before heading out, I thought it worth sharing this sign from one of the local bars, though it has nothing to do with whales.

There's certainly something to be said for honesty.
