Happy Birthday Shaun

A crazy surface chop made this morning's ocean swim more than just a little bit challenging - and fun.

Plain Versus Fancy

 I often drive to the end of my street to experience a little bit of wilderness. Keoneoio has wild water for swimming and rough lava and kiawe trees for hiking.

In contrast, just a short distance the other way is ritzy Wailea beach, where crystal chandeliers hanging under the open sky are not unheard of.

 Thanksgiving morning was perfect for an ocean swim. Besides, we had to work off the turkey dinner to come.

I had lots of fun both below water and above, and am tremendously grateful for everything about my life.

Overeating Lesson

 Once again, her lightening fast reflexes allowed Patti to catch a fish with her bare hands this morning. It didn't hurt that this Moray Eel had recently eaten more than it could handle and was a bit sluggish.

Which provides us with a timely lesson - don't eat more than you can handle this Thanksgiving.

Impending Disaster

I am accustomed to seeing giant land snails on the ground, which is where they belong. But this morning I saw them climbing walls and trees. Is there something they know that I don't? An impending disaster, perhaps?

I wasn't thrilled with any of the Koi photos I took this morning, so I thought I'd goof around with special effects...

Another Double Birthday Swim
 We had yet another spectacular double birthday swim this morning. We got to celebrate both Jonathan & Lynne's increasing ages.

For his birthday wish, Jonathan got us to swim out to the sunken WWII Landing Craft which lies at a depth of 60 feet.

Failed Escape

I managed to sneak out of the office for a few minutes this morning. But I didn't get far before getting caught by the boss. Here are a couple of quick snapshots from my all-too-brief excursion.
