Extreme Bocce Ball

We retreated to Janet & Patti's country home yesterday for my o'fish'al birthday celebration. Tradition among our group includes the passing on of various leis, hats and the birthday scepter (not shown here).

We engaged in our version of Bocce Ball which doesn't follow the rule book to the letter, but is a heck of a good time.

And then came the Dr. Seuss inspired birthday cake which was absolutely perfect. All future birthdays are going to pale in comparison.

On the Decline

Visibility was on the decline this morning as higher surf begins rolling in for the weekend, and this was the only underwater photo I got today.

Meditative and Entertaining

I'm finding that going out to watch sunset every evening is calming and meditative.

Entertaining, as well, with a different wedding photo session each time.

Quite Crabby

Christine and Doug made it all the way down the mountain to join me in battling wind-tossed waves for a mid-week ocean swim challenge this morning.

We noticed this brightly colored little guy who seemed quite crabby (blame Doug for the wording, not me).

Tennis Doug Swims
Maui's Pink Cap swimmers were surprised by a visit from Tennis Doug this morning. What a treat!

And the Shark's Eye View photo was actually appropriate.

More Like It

This morning I was having one of my most boring ocean swims ever, having only seen one turtle and many hundreds of fish, when I came across two White Tip Reef Sharks. Now that's more like it!

We have been hit by a series of spectacular sunsets this week. Photos never seem to do them justice.

And Shell Ginger is currently in bloom.

Lots and Lots

Lucky me, I got to swim with a large Spotted Eagle Ray, a good-size White Tip Reef Shark, and lots and lots of other fishies of all kinds.

Marine Debris and More
I had the very great privilege of getting to swim with THE Ian Emberson (and his daughter and son-in-law) along with Maui's Pink Cap swimmers this morning.

We got to swim with sharks and other interesting critters, as well as with the famous Diane Shepherd.

Click HERE for more photos (including the marine debris with which Diane needs assistance removing).
