Clear Water Returns


Hooray, a return to clear water on Maui's south shore. Will it last? I plan on making the most of it while it is here.

Cock Fight


Maui has lots and lots of feral chickens. In fact chances are really good that wild chickens will be climbing over your feet looking for crumbs at most outdoor restaurants.

But this morning was the first time I'd seen two roosters battling it out.

The Maui Pink Cap swimmers encountered yet another Sunday morning of far less than clear ocean water. I don't know why the murky conditions affected all of my photos, both above water and below.

Click HERE for a few more photos from another brief swim.

Neoclassical


I've seen lots of creative arches for beach weddings here on Maui, but today was the first time I'd seen a neoclassical one.

The moon is getting full and the sunsets continue to wow.

Coral Bleaching


A lot of our coral is transitioning from its natural yellowish color to a blue as it begins the bleaching process in the warmer than usual ocean water this year.

My hair is growing back quickly.

Boy with a Fishing Pole


The top photo is from my morning beach walk.

Sunset a couple of days ago.

The only thing the last photo is missing is a little boy with a fishing pole.

No Poops


Hooray! Clear water has returned to the south shore of Maui which allowed me to spot, and swim with, two large Manta Rays this morning.

They were busy feeding and were doing loops and swoops but no poops.
