Cleaning Up


 I am really liking the new Education Coordinator for the Ahihi-Kina'u Natural Area Reserve. He has repeatedly gone out of his way to show me creatures I've never seen before.

Most notably this morning were tiny little baby eels and yet another cleaner shrimp.

Private Breakfast


It looked like a spectacular morning for a private breakfast on the shore this morning at the Wailea Marriott.

 The ladies are off traveling yet again, so no more ocean swims with them until autumn sometime.

We did manage one last swim this morning with a talking Lobster, lots of grunting fish, two White Tip Reef Sharks, a Spotted Eagle Ray, many Green Sea Turtles, and many other fishies.

Wind Riders


 I had some time to kill while waiting for the printer to finish work on some photographs of mine, so I hopped over to the windsurfing/kitesurfing beach for a few minutes this afternoon.

Trade winds have returned after a hiatus and lots and lots of people were out taking advantage of the fresh breeze.

Lifting Forks


Despite a High Surf Warning, a fair sized contingent showed up for our weekly Sunday morning ocean swim.

Silly us! Visibility was so poor that the first underwater shot I attempted did not contain any swimmers. I couldn't find them and they couldn't find me. And this was from less than ten feet apart.

So we turned back to shore and got our exercise lifting forks at Amigo's.

Drone On and On


 Drone photography has become de rigueur at way too many shoots these days.

Yes, a drone shot may provide an excellent contextual point of view; but only rarely have I seen any drone shots from weddings or portrait sessions which have any artistic merit whatsoever. And now that everyone (except me) is using them, the novelty is quickly wearing off.

Then again - use of a drone on the family portrait in the top photo did keep the boys fully engaged...

Another Ahihi Adventure

 This was another morning of ocean adventures.

Waves were surging a little too much for us to be able to get into some of our favorite tight spots, but we got close.
