I have so very much to be grateful for, including lots of great desserts at dinner last night.

Dove Release

Our neighbors held a wonderful retirement party for Doug this weekend.

Great people, great food, nice sunset, and even a Dove release.

Manta Rays and Pink Caps
Yesterday's ocean swim with the Maui Pink Cap swimmers was especially sweet because we got to swim with two friendly Manta Rays. Plus numerous turtles, both Green Sea Turtles and one rare Hawksbill, as well as many fishies of all kinds. What a fun morning.

Get Away

My evening walks continue to be awe inspiring.

When I'm still stressing after a hard day at the office, once the sky begins glowing with spectacular colors, I am finally able to get completely away from my woes.

Lovely Friday

 Unfortunately, I did not get the opportunity to swim this weekend, but I did have a lovely time with lots of Green Sea Turtles after work on Friday.

Do It Yourself

 The resorts have been offering oceanfront private dining recently; but this couple decided to do it themselves, and quite nicely too.

With the earlier autumn sunsets, the ends of my walks are in darkness.

Poor Vis

Extremely poor visibility kept our ocean swim very brief yesterday. Not only was the water cloudy, but there was lots of scary debris floating all around us. Although it did bring an early reindeer sighting.

Moon Over Makena

I was so happy to get in a normal after work swim yesterday evening - with no jellyfish.

Lots of turtles were out and the moon was rising over my workplace.

I cut my after work ocean swim short yesterday after being hit big-time by Portuguese Man-Of-War. For those of you who've never gotten a direct hit by one, the pain for the first five minutes is INTENSE. My first experience came from encountering one with my thumb. It was like someone had slammed a hammer with all their might onto my thumb. Yes, really.

But at least all I had were the tendrils. A snorkeler came out of the water soon after I did, and he had the entire jellyfish still attached to him. Owie.

Sleeping Turtles

The sun keeps setting earlier and earlier, so I'm seeing more dramatic silhouettes during my evening (previously afternoon) walks.

I usually get Saturday morning off work, so I'm still getting to experience sunshine one day each week. And sleeping turtles as well.

Rob's Birthday Swim
Maui's Pink Cap swimmers helped celebrate Rob's birthday and Maui visit with a gorgeous swim out to the Aquarium yesterday.

The only down side to the morning was seeing lots of Akule dead and dying near shore. Very strange.
