Ka'apuni March


 As part of their 193 mile walk around the island of Maui, native Hawaiians and others were seeking spiritual support for the changes they face.

During a break at Palauea beach, I spoke with a few of the marchers, and got an earful about how much has been taken away from them by rich mainlanders. One of them implied rather strongly that I was one of those people who had stolen from them.

I quietly continued my morning walk and even managed to calm down after only a few miles.

Rainbows Everywhere


Another of the great things about Maui is that we often enjoy rainbows on beautiful, sunny days. 

And not just in the sky, either, as this Gold Dust Day Gecko's wide range of colors shows.

Fluffy


Another winter storm front is moving down the island chain which means that our clouds are fluffier than usual - otherwise, sunshine and warmth continue to prevail.

Our neighborhood bougainvillea is once again going off - big time.

I've Been Grounded


I've been grounded for a few weeks due to shoulder problems, so all of my photos will be land-based for a while. The photo on top is out my front door and the one below is behind my house.

Getting to Know You


People are making the best of our missing beaches. Many of them are combing through the rocks in search of shells. And the rest are enjoying getting to know each other as they pack into what little sand is left.

Surprisingly Fast


For those of you accustomed to leisurely strolling the long sandy expanse of Keawakapu beach, some stretches have become a bit challenging. But not to worry. The sand will return surprisingly fast.

 Hooray!

The weather has gotten better and we've finally returned to our usual Sunday swim spot. Visibility was far less than perfect, but otherwise conditions were spectacular.

Click HERE for a few more photos from this morning's ocean swim.
