Gazillions


A few days of recent rain have brought back gazillions of daisies to our desert clime here in south Maui. Grass is also sprouting everywhere, hiding the brutal jumbled lava rocky landscape.

Snow and Mermaid


 This was one of the more creative sand sculptures I've seen on the south Maui beaches.

Can you tell which way the prevailing winds blow at Kam II beach?

And finally, Maui's snow as seen from the airport terminal Monday morning as I was awaiting my flight.

Meant to Be


My photo shoot on the Big Island was shortened by yet another day, so I am back home on Maui and in the ocean again.

This is the way life is meant to be.

Maui's Pink Cap Swimmers were briefly surrounded by nearly one hundred Spinner Dolphins this morning. We, of course, continued our swim and the dolphins did, well, whatever it is that they do on a Sunday morning.

Soaking Up Sunshine


 It was a perfect morning for snorkeling, and posing.

This Japanese White-Eye seemed to be getting a lot of nectar from this one flower, it kept dipping its beak in again and again.

My eye was caught by the strange cloud formation and the sunshine breaking through in the middle over the windmills. Then I noticed the standup paddler who was towing two other boards whose occupants were busy soaking up sunshine.

Tumbling Down


Someone has been stacking stones all along Maui's south shore this past week, but they all went tumbling down in today's strong Kona winds.

Winds? Bring 'em on, was the response I heard from DB and Lynne who were heading out with their sailing Hobies this morning.

There was even a kite surfer skimming the waves, which is an unusual sight down in Wailea.

Lucky 13


I always feel honored to have the opportunity to swim with Maui's Mermaids, and this morning was no exception.
