I couldn't resist the juxtaposition of this sign with these chairs. Whale watching, maybe; but shark watching?
Only a few years ago there was no public transport (except private taxis) on Maui, and now there is regular service with double-decker buses. Things are a-changin'

None of the turtles I saw, who are prime food sources for big sharks, seemed the least bit concerned. And after my swim I noticed several snorkelers who were having a great time, laughing and joking amongst themselves.
So, I've decided that it is time for an attitude shift. If I commit to a swim, I need to banish all worries about being torn apart by big ocean predators. I need to just enjoy the swim.

This morning yet another person was killed by a shark in my back yard. Two deaths in the past few months in my neighborhood plus several bites within a couple of miles. This is getting out of hand. If the sharks don't get back in line I'm afraid that I am going to have to take action.

And the crowd grew thinner as the swim through murky water progressed. From the nine who began the swim, only four of us emerged together at the end. Don't worry, the other five all got out safely, but only minutes after getting in.

What is more surprising than walking through the woods and stumbling across an unexpected grave?
Why, stumbling across two graves - one of which has been broken open, of course.
Which begs the question, why is only one grave opened? A resurrection? The beginning of the zombie apocalypse? Family feud? Hmmmm...
