Lobster Pearls

 Maui Camera Club had an outing yesterday to capture the sunset, but I found this lobster's eye (top photo) much more captivating.

We chose a prime shoreline area which has permanent signs warning against the toxic water - with, of course, swimmers in that water.

Oh, and there was a nice sunset too.

Everybody Loves Lilikoi

Everybody loves lilikoi.

Butterflies drink the nectar, caterpillars (not pictured) munch happily on the leaves, and ants adore the sweet fruit. I thought the fruit was pretty darn good myself this morning as I roamed a patch of wild lilikoi.

Prime Beach Time

October is prime beach going weather on Maui. The air is cooling down, the sun is less intense but the ocean is still gloriously warm.

Oh, and the flowers are still in bloom - well, I guess they're always on bloom on Maui.

Back Again

 The Ladies are back from yet another round of world travels; swearing that they won't leave the island again this year (yeah, right).

We had a relaxing spa-like swim in the still-warm ocean in front of my house, and were amazed at the various bright colors of bleaching coral.

Ugly - but Not

 My neighbors are universal in their dislike for the new house going up down the street - but - they all love the front door.

Some people on the beach accessorize better than others.

And, finally, our Shower Trees are still going off with huge bouquets of blossoms, just like they have been all summer.

All But Three
 Clear water prevailed for yesterday's ocean swim with the Maui Pink Cap Swimmers. Despite choppy conditions and a strong current, all but three swimmers made it back.

George celebrated his extended vacation with a leap from the Jumping Off rock.

Don't Swim - Fly

 The turtles did not pose nicely like they did for me on my swim two days ago, but it was still nice getting to visit with so many of them.

Today the water was exceptionally clear - the kind of crystal clearness we only get a few days a year. On days like today I don't swim - I fly.
