Abs Workout


 All the high-end resorts now want "spikeless" palm tree trimming, which means an amazing abs workout for the workers.

Kihei Caffe is a South Maui institution for breakfast and lunch and exists in one of the few remaining quanset huts on Maui.

 High tide brought the Maui Pink Cap Swimmers into some shallow water this morning. Areas we did not dare tackle last Sunday.

Coach Janet wanted to see how effective the shark repellant devices are. Hmmmm, they must only work on sharks.

Amazing how two people who were nearly killed in separate bicycle accidents are back swimming again. Amazing and wonderful.

Summer is Here


Calm ocean, clear skies, and no more chilly nights. Summer has arrived on Maui.

Turtle Breath


 Swimming alone is fun, but swimming with friends is even better.

This morning's ocean swim involved lots of play and exploration, and even a small amount of danger (have you ever smelled a turtle's breath from inches away?).

Grindstone


I managed to sneak in another short walk while the boss wasn't looking this morning. But now my nose is back to the grindstone. Here are a couple of snapshots from the walk.

Show Off


 Unlike Green Sea Turtles and Spinner Dolphins, most fish are shy around me and my camera.

But not this guy this morning! He kept swimming around me, posing this way and that.

And, of course, all the turtles I saw were completely oblivious to my presence.

Kalama Trees


While my car was in the shop this morning, I had the opportunity to wander Kihei's Kalama Park and got to appreciate its interesting trees.
