Turtle Treat


I wasn't feeling well yesterday - until Doug dragged me out into the ocean. What a treat.

We saw lots of turtles, and one of them kept following us around (bottom photo). No matter which direction we went, she kept heading right toward us.

Final Swim of the Pandemic

A few, mostly related pairs, of Maui's Pink Cap swimmers thoroughly enjoyed an ocean swim replete with Green Sea Turtles and laughter. We explored a sea cave, a new swim-thru arch and lots of unfamiliar terrain.

New county of Maui rules make yesterday's swim the last group swim for a while. We all kept our distance from non-family members but, even so, will be playing it even safer from here on out.

Worse Ways


I can think of worse ways to be in quarantine. The beaches were mostly empty this morning and almost everyone kept a cheerful distance from others as they got out and exercised.

Same but Different


Same sunset, different times. I love how the colors turn more intensely pink after the sun has set.

Nearly Empty


What a difference a couple of days makes.

Saturday there were lots and lots of people out and about. Even though the lockdown stay at home order for Hawaii doesn't begin until midnight tonight, the streets and beaches were nearly empty yesterday. In fact Polo Beach (bottom photo) was so quiet that people felt comfortable putting up fishing poles all along the beach.

Desperate for exercise, Maui's Pink Cap swimmers showed up in ones and twos for an ocean swim yesterday morning. Keeping safely apart, the swimmers headed out in small groups for an invigorating swim.

Nicer Complex


With the skies reflecting the turmoil surrounding us, there continue to be dramatic sunsets.

And while not over the top, this sand castle complex is one of the nicer ones I've seen on the beach.
