Kahanamoku


In celebration of Duke Kahanamoku's 125th birthday today, lots of surfers were out riding the waves. Or perhaps they would have been out on the waves anyway, but any excuse counts.

Braving Adversity

Despite conditions being far less than ideal, a small band of Maui Pink Cap Swimmers braved adversity for a fun ocean swim this morning.

Click HERE for a couple more photos from today's swim.

Cloudy and Bright


This morning may have been a little cloudier than usual, but Maui's beaches are still No Ka Oi.

Where Two Worlds Collide


Just over a mile south of my house the high wall of the mountain meets the beach and continues marching out into the ocean. The collision of the old lava flow and restless sea create a perfect break for boogie boarding.

Lopsided Test


 My buddy, Annie, showed me this interesting test she found recently (top photo). Most urchin tests are symmetrical with the star centrally located.

In addition to the usual preponderance of fishies, Annie found this large Moray Eel and a colorful Cleaner Wrasse (middle photo) on our ocean swim this morning.

Bottlecap Tree


The man who is normally camped under this tree every day was not there today, which gave me the opportunity to see how he has managed to put his personal stamp on his territory.
