Bocce Ball (a form of lawn bowling) is becoming more popular here although, this being the U.S., it tends more toward being an extreme sport. In Europe it is usually played with finesse in small marked off areas. Here, it seems, the farther you can throw the ball, the better.
Stand Up Paddling is also gaining in popularity and SUPs often rule the waves.
Anoles (top photo) seem much more intimidating to me than Geckos (bottom photo). I guess it is due to a combination of their aggressive attitude, claws and dragon-like appearance. With Geckos all I can think of is a wise-cracking insurance spokesman.
Kahu Kimokeo Kapahulehua gave a moving blessing at a neighbor's home yesterday. Wow. I noticed an interesting lava tube along the shore this morning, I can't wait to swim through it. Soon... We tried out the new hammock (next time we'll shorten the ropes) and love it.
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
