Very few people showed up to celebrate Malcolm's birthday, even Malcolm was absent. But, despite threatening weather, conditions were exceptional.

Troubles Forgotten


I somehow managed to get out into the ocean yesterday afternoon during a pause in the winds. Most of the day winds were gusting out of the north, then I was blessed with a half-hour of calm and I made a dash for the beach. Halfway through my swim, gales began blowing out of the south and I struggled to make it back. But I forgot all my troubles when I encountered a Spotted Eagle Ray and several Green Sea Turtles.

Newest Toy


This year's new toy on the beach is the hydrofoil motorized surf board.

Or you can always go old-school.

First Swim of 2020


Maui's Pink Cap swimmers started the year off right with a swim at Ahihi. Coach Dave, who just returned from a visit to D.C., said he let out a yelp when he unexpectedly came face to face with Christine in the Smithsonian. Apparently, our group underwater photo is still prominently displayed there, greeting visitors at the top of an escalator.

Final Sunset


 The top photo was the final sunset of 2019.

The other two were after and before.
