It's rare enough to see a large group of humpbacks and then rarer still to get a sunny day in Juneau. It makes for a very rare phenomenon that the locals call RAINBLOWS

ICYMI - Amazing story of an Olympic athlete 
Almost every athlete at the 2016 Olympic Games will have an interesting backstory, but Yusra Mardini's is more extraordinary than most. Mardini is in Rio to represent a team of 10 refugee Olympic athletes. While any other 18-year-old’s biggest achievements may be confined to the A-level results they leave school with, Mardini’s is almost incomprehensible.
