Visibility was way less than spectacular (rotten, actually) for Patti's birthday swim this morning, but we didn't let that stop us. No Way.

We may not have seen much, but we had fun, fun, fun. And on his last swim, Ted took no less than six rides through a cranking slosh.

Shhhh


I am totally slammed with work right how (hooray) and only had time for a brief encounter with Maui's Mermaids this morning.

Since I only took a couple of photos, it didn't take long to upload them here -- shhhh, just please don't tell my boss.

True Miracle


I had a fun swim out to the Aquarium this morning with my buddy, Beth.

We were both struggling a bit on the return, but were saved by the appearance of three angels in pink caps. With superhuman strength and perseverance they brought us much of the way to shore. And then a true miracle occurred when lifeguards on jetskis showed up. There are never lifeguards out in this area, but somehow they showed up today just when they were needed most. Many thanks to Maui's lifeguards.

By the way, we are both fine now.

Even with Clouds


Thank goodness for Maui's Mermaids, they motivate me to get out into the ocean, even on cloudy days.

And, as is so often the case, I had a great swim. Not to mention a wonderful poetry recital out in the Aquarium.
