Rainbow Painting


Rainbow is visiting Maui for a couple of days to paint a mural for a local business; and she still made time to swim in the ocean.

I didn't see any dolphins this morning, but did see lots and lots of turtles.

Transformation


 What could be more beautiful than a south Maui morning? Conditions were exquisite for my walk along the shore today, and lots of other people seemed to be enjoying themselves as well.

The squid from earlier this week has transformed into some kind of Gorgon.

Big Guy


I got to swim with Maui's Mermaids and some of their hangers on this morning.

We saw lots of fish, including this BIG guy (bottom photo) in shallow water chasing small fish.

Giant Squid


 I was surprised to see this giant squid still in the same place two days later. At least it hadn't begun to smell.

Climbing coconut palms with spikes is becoming a thing of the past. Apparently the holes created by the spikes can cause the trees to be more susceptible to disease.

 The Maui Pink Cap Swimmers followed up their Earth Day March for Science with an ocean swim this morning.

The most interesting things we saw were three people with x2 Sport jetpacks zooming through the water. Sooo Cooooool!

The critters we saw were pretty cool, too.

 This morning's ocean swim was all about dolphins.

Well, not just dolphins. It was also about a birthday, and a shark, and lobsters, and so much more.
