Ghost Mantas

Yesterday, the fun group of the Maui Pink Cap swimmers wisely swam the usual course - and got to spend time with two ghost mantas. They were both doing loop-de-loops and kept us moving.

Spooky Cacti

I've just returned from two weeks in southern Arizona where the cactus rules the landscape. 

I especially enjoyed these Halloween cacti.

This is the view from my mom's back yard and some of her original artwork.

Jen's Birthday Surprise

Jen chose a different location for her birthday swim this past Sunday, and what a great choice! Shortly after we began we were swarmed by over forty spinner dolphins. We hung with them briefly, then headed off our way while they went theirs.

Crazy Kids

I ran into Matt and Andrea out in the ocean this morning. They were relaxing with what they considered to be a short swim after swimming the entire distance from the island of Lanai to Maui yesterday. Crazy kids!

There were also lots of turtles and an eagle ray, plus all the usual hordes of fishies.

Happy Birthday, Doug

Due to a late season south swell, visibility was fairly poor Sunday. But we swam anyway. 

While taking the group photo, many of the swimmers couldn't even see me, but the camera sees all :-)

A Million Years

Maui's Pink Cap swimmers headed all the way up to Honolua Bay this past Sunday to explore some new terrain. It is amazing what a difference a million years can make to how the island looks.

Our usually solitary turtles were hanging out together this morning. 

And this ray kept swimming up to me.
