Surrounded


I got to swim with lots of turtles this morning and a spotted eagle ray, too.

And right at the end I was surrounded by a big school of half-beaks.

Naked Swimming


 For some reason I like the look of both raccoons and Raccoon Butterfly Fish. This morning I noticed a school of about thirty in a different place than usual.

Yes, summer is almost here and I am not needing lots of warm clothing when I swim. I felt practically naked swimming without a wetsuit today.

It wasn't until I looked at the photo that I realized that a Wrasse was hiding under this turtle.

Most of Maui's Pink Cap Swimmers headed to the neighboring island of Lanai yesterday to celebrate Patti's birthday.

We played in wild water, saw lots of critters, got banged up a little, but definitely had lots of fun.

Lip Licking Good


 I met a very friendly shark this morning who kept swimming right up to me. I assume that licking of the lips is a sign of friendliness, right?

I also met some friendly people as well, both on land and in the water.

Intense Sunlight


Lots and lots of butterflies were clustering along the shore this morning.

Shade was most welcome this morning. Even though the temperatures are not hot, sunlight is intense this time of year.
