Pushed Aside

The Green Sea Turtles which hang out in front of my house are so accustomed to snorkelers that they completely ignore us. The one in the middle photo swam right up to me this morning, then pushed me aside with one flipper and swam past.

College Transport

I guess these things have been around for a while now, but the first time I'd ever seen a Segway Ninebot One E + was in Paris where I saw quite a few. They seemed to be popular among college students as a way to get around. Way cool.

Rock Crawler

This Sea Turtle crawling over the rocks drew quite a crowd of onlookers at Kam II beach this morning.

Another Miss

 Yet another tropical storm/hurricane is set to miss us completely. Even though a light rain caressed this beach wedding this morning, it is now sunny and beautiful.

The storm track has been adjusted at the last moment, just as they always are. Maui is lucky to be blocked by the immense mountains of the Big Island of Hawaii, which are in the process of deflecting yet another batch of threatening weather.

Making Tracks

 Sea Turtles come up onto the beach in the dark of the night to lay their eggs buried in the sand well above the high tide line.

While not that noticeable, the tracks to and from their "nest" are distinctive (center photo).

Waves were crashing during my ocean swim this morning, but at least I had sunny skies and light winds.

Loyal Followers

This turtle had three very loyal followers this morning. They never got more than a couple of feet away at any time.

The fish below couldn't seem to decide on which way to go.

Fishie Friends

With the remnants of hurricane Celia passing to our near north the weather is absolutely spectacular, including dramatic cloud formations over the mountains.

Fishing boats were just off shore this morning hauling in lots and lots of my little fishie friends.
