These Ones

 Our trees are so heavily laden with mangoes that I can't even conceive of paying for one - but FIVE DOLLARS? Each? This was in front of a house just down the street.

This bride and her father were patiently waiting in the shade for the big moment.

Sunscreen is always a good idea.

So Do You

Being an early riser, I get to see things I might not otherwise be able to see.

For instance the Night Blooming Cereus only blooms once, the flowers open at night and quickly wilt as the sun comes up. But I got to see lots of them still open this morning. And now, so do you.

Small Swell

Appropriately sized surfers were taking advantage of this morning's south swell, and were having a great time at it.

Ancient History on Maui

I somehow found myself hiking up to the Olowalu Petroglyphs this morning. The top photo is an enhancement of a portion of the middle photo to better show the ancient pictograms. There is still some modern graffiti mixed in, but most of that has been removed.

A little less ancient are the ruins of a Sugar Mill across the street which was torn down in 1933.

Oh, and a Spotted Eagle Ray, too.

Twin Falls

Doug and I had a glorious morning hiking the Twin Falls area. It really is a very special place.

Oh, and that's us at Baldwin Beach on our way home.

Kimi's Birthday Adventure
 Yesterday found some of Kimi's friends taking her way up the mountain to get her Lifetime National Park Pass.

And as long as we were there...well, a hike above the clouds was definitely in order.

Color Me Impressed

 Okay, I am thoroughly impressed.

I took my newest little point-and-shoot camera on my morning walk and was wowed by the results when I got home to my computer. The top photo is a crop of the middle photo, and even zoomed way in like this, it holds the details remarkably.

Wet Walk

I had a lovely walk this morning. Waterfalls were going off all over the place.

Sensor Freak Out

I love Rosanne's sleeves, they're visible from huge distances, and they certainly outshine our colorful lobsters; but they totally freak out my camera's sensors.

Happy Birthday to Kenny.

New Friends
 We met a nice family from Austria this morning as they stopped by Maui on their around-the-world sail onboard the Pakia Tea. We meet the nicest people while out on our ocean swims.

Complete Agreement

How absolutely magnificent it was to tear myself away from work and to go for an ocean swim with friends this morning. It has been way, way too long.

The Manta Ray and Green Sea Turtle were both in complete agreement.

South Maui Morning Stroll

 Morning yoga on the shore.

Friendly plein-air painters.

My first visit to the Kihei fish pond.
