Volcanic Eruption

For those of you who have been wondering about the volcanic eruptions on the Big Island of Hawaii, we have experienced zero impact here on Maui. The active volcano is about 100 miles (160 km) away and we feel nothing, we hear nothing and we see nothing. On rare occasions the winds change from their usual "trade wind" direction and we then experience air pollution (called vog), but it has been awhile since that has happened. So we imagine what it must be like when we see the sun currently setting behind the neighboring island of Lanai.

I have seen these shells on the beach, but this is the first time I've seen one of their inhabitants.
