These Gold Dust Day Geckos are everywhere, including one which refused to budge from under a Makena "A" this morning. They were sticking their heads out from just about every third rock on our wall this morning.
And the winds have finally slowed down enough to allow families of Stand-Up Paddlers to take to the ocean again this morning.
As part of their 193 mile walk around the island of Maui, native Hawaiians and others were seeking spiritual support for the changes they face.
During a break at Palauea beach, I spoke with a few of the marchers, and got an earful about how much has been taken away from them by rich mainlanders. One of them implied rather strongly that I was one of those people who had stolen from them.
I quietly continued my morning walk and even managed to calm down after only a few miles.
I'm a guy who likes to get out into the ocean several times each week and interact with the creatures I encounter there. I often swim with dolphins, sharks, rays, and whales. Check out my photos on my website: www.TropicalLight.com
