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.

Small, Small Band

 Happily, this morning's murky water got clearer the farther we swam. Nonetheless, our small, small band diminished as we went, until only three foolhardy souls remained.

Despite crazy, wild waves, a good time was had by all.

All Road End


 I had fun hiking with a new group of people this morning.

We explored just a little south of my house down beyond where all roads end. I love getting out into the wilderness, where even my cell phone doesn't work.

Unlike my swimming buddies, this group knows how to take it easy - no fifteen mile trek for them.

I'm looking forward to the next hike.

Fun People


I meet the most fun people in the ocean.
