Finally! The ocean cleared up significantly in the last few days and visibility was good enough that we were even able to see a few critters.

Including the endangered Hawksbill Turtle in the middle photograph.

Minor Imperfection


Waves were still crashing this morning, but underwater everything was smooth sailing.

Of course, the renewed ocean swell has maintained the poor visibility below the surface; but there has to be some minor imperfection in paradise.

Slowly, Slowly, Slowly


Slowly, slowly, slowly visibility is improving in South Maui waters.

The ocean also seems to be cooling down just a little. Winter is on its way.

Final Sunday of Summer


Nice warm water marked the final swim of summer for the Maui Pink Cap Swimmers.

Unfortunately, visibility was considerably less than optimal, but that didn't keep us from having a great time in the silky ocean water.

No Runoff


Visibility was way less than optimal this morning. We have not had any runoff in South Maui from the recent rain storms, but have had lots of crashing surf.

On That Horse

After an extremely unpleasant ocean swimming experience last week, it was important for the Maui Pink Cap Swimmers to get right back on that horse.

And it was great. The water felt like warm silk and, except for a little murk near the start, conditions were exquisite.

Funeral Procession


I was impressed by how well these ants were working together to move this dead frog. Especially since they were hauling it vertically up the side of a curb.
