Too Warm?

Maui's Pink Cap swimmers once again had spectacular conditions with nice cozy clear warm water. In fact, it was so warm, we felt no need to return to shore and spent lots and lots of time chatting about this and that. It wasn't until hunger hit that we finally headed to shore.

Outdoor Chaandeliers


Almost every Saturday in south Kihei, people line up to buy whole huli-huli chickens from a street vendor.

There was a lot of elaborate setup at one of the Wailea resorts for a pretty swanky wedding tonight. The reception site on a beach-front lawn includes an open air ballroom with lots and lots of crystal chandeliers.

Throw-net fishermen are incredibly patient, waiting and waiting for a school of fish to swim by.

Tranquility


The ocean was choppy for my after work swim today, but it didn't matter because I really needed the release that an ocean swim gives me. And underneath the waves, everything was tranquil and perfect.

Someone to Watch Over Me


There was a moment of calm yesterday afternoon, when the winds briefly died, and I managed to get out into the ocean for a swim. And then they picked up again. It was a struggle getting home, but at least I had an escort. The turtle in the bottom photo swam along side me almost the entire way back. I love being watched over by my ocean friends.

Wait for It


Last night was yet another example of why patience can be a valued trait. The actual setting of the sun was nice, but nothing special. Half an hour later, however, was glorious. There is no way photographs ever do the real thing justice.

Wrong Direction


On my evening walks after I get off work, I notice that lots and lots of people gather at the various beaches to watch the sun set.

The other evening they were all looking in the wrong direction. No one even thought to look in the exact opposite direction where a stunning rainbow crossed a huge swath of sky.

Early Thanksgiving

It seems that tomorrow is Thanksgiving in Canada and, even though we're on Maui, we had a lot to be thankful for this morning.

We saw lots of friendly turtles and had exceptional swimming conditions.
