I'm usually indoors at sunset time watching a movie with my honey. Due to a mixed-up schedule this week, I was outdoors for last night's glorious light show in the sky. It was golden while the sun was up, but turned crimson after the sun dropped below the horizon. What a treat.
Cub Scout Pack 81 and Boy Scout Troop 81 came down from Makawao School to conduct a fishing tournament for their members this morning. There were prizes for: first fish caught, smallest fish, and largest fish.
At the next beach along the shore a group of 40 - 50 teenagers were playing a game where some of them had to crawl between the legs of all the others.
The Saltwater Lagoon at the Grand Wailea Resort has been a fixture for 25 years, but is about to change. The theme-park style resort is planning on deepening it and making it into a kind of snorkeling ride.
The Maui Ocean Center stepped in this morning to remove the hundreds of resident saltwater fish, some of which are going to the central Maui aquarium, and some of which will be reintroduced to the ocean. However, not all of the fish were willing to go without a fight.
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
