Do It Yourself


 The resorts have been offering oceanfront private dining recently; but this couple decided to do it themselves, and quite nicely too.

With the earlier autumn sunsets, the ends of my walks are in darkness.

Poor Vis


Extremely poor visibility kept our ocean swim very brief yesterday. Not only was the water cloudy, but there was lots of scary debris floating all around us. Although it did bring an early reindeer sighting.

Moon Over Makena


I was so happy to get in a normal after work swim yesterday evening - with no jellyfish.

Lots of turtles were out and the moon was rising over my workplace.

Owie


I cut my after work ocean swim short yesterday after being hit big-time by Portuguese Man-Of-War. For those of you who've never gotten a direct hit by one, the pain for the first five minutes is INTENSE. My first experience came from encountering one with my thumb. It was like someone had slammed a hammer with all their might onto my thumb. Yes, really.

But at least all I had were the tendrils. A snorkeler came out of the water soon after I did, and he had the entire jellyfish still attached to him. Owie.

Sleeping Turtles


The sun keeps setting earlier and earlier, so I'm seeing more dramatic silhouettes during my evening (previously afternoon) walks.

I usually get Saturday morning off work, so I'm still getting to experience sunshine one day each week. And sleeping turtles as well.

Maui's Pink Cap swimmers helped celebrate Rob's birthday and Maui visit with a gorgeous swim out to the Aquarium yesterday.

The only down side to the morning was seeing lots of Akule dead and dying near shore. Very strange.

Fully Lit


The skies were briefly overcast one day recently and I loved the way the sky and ocean became one.

Last night's fingernail moon was clearly lit up in its entirety.

My evening walks are definitely more colorful than my morning walks ever were.
