Double Up


People like to double up while paddleboarding, and this morning it seemed that everyone was doing it.

Plein-air painters were out along the shore recently.

Zoom Zoom


Maui's Mermaids zoomed out to the Aquarium this morning and then zoomed back in. Before I knew what had happened I was once again standing on shore and wondering if I had imagined the whole thing. Thank goodness for photos, now I know it really happened.

 Maui's Pink Cap swimmers had a lovely morning for an ocean swim today. The conditions varied from crystal clear to not bad at all.

While out for a brief swim this morning I was mobbed by more than fifty Spinner Dolphins. They came at me from all directions and kept swimming around me, before suddenly departing.

Drama in the Skies


We are seeing some dramatic cloud formations due to a nearby weather system. These vertical clouds at sunset yesterday were the only ones lit in red.

Hang gliders jump off the mountain most clear days, but only on rare occasions come all the way down to land illegally on the beach. The moment they hit ground, they immediately pack up the parachute and scoot away.

Doug's 74th Birthday

http://www.tropicallight.com/swim1/07apr19LP/07apr19LP.html

Many of the Maui Pink Cap swimmers helped Doug celebrate his 74th trip around the sun with, of course, an ocean swim. And chocolate covered coffee beans. And lunch. And chocolate cake.

And lots of laughter. Lucky us, getting to swim with each other.

Rescue Team


Many thanks to the Reef clean-up and rescue team headed by Cheryl, Alan and Bruce. You and your team make our island a much better place to live. Mahalo

And Alan pointed out this Scorpionfish which I never would have noticed otherwise. How cool.
