A Million Years


Maui's Pink Cap swimmers headed all the way up to Honolua Bay this past Sunday to explore some new terrain. It is amazing what a difference a million years can make to how the island looks.

Togetherness


Our usually solitary turtles were hanging out together this morning. 

And this ray kept swimming up to me.

Desert and Jungle


Yes, we have cactus plants growing wild on Maui. They dot the former cattle grazing grounds along with our version of mesquite, the kiawe.

Nice puddle reflections this morning and Shower Trees are still loaded with summer blossoms.

Wednesday on the Reef


Trumpetfish in general don't hang out with Yellow Tang, but this yellow Trumpetfish wouldn't let them out of its sight.

These two White Tip Reef Sharks were lazing in the current.

And this Spotted Eagle Ray was on a mission.

Mermaids


I decided to swim closer to home this morning and ran into a couple of mermaids out in the briny. What a treat.

Many Pods


Maui's Pink Cap swimmers were all back at the usual Sunday location yesterday morning. To keep group size down they started out in two separate packs, and then fractured into smaller pods from there.

Some of the pods saw Manta Ray, Eagle Rays and Shark; but I only saw swimmers, fishies and turtles.

Let Sleeping Sharks Lie


I found this spectacular specimen of a Triton's Trumpet on my Wednesday morning ocean swim. I never take anything (except photos) from the ocean, but I sure was tempted.

I also chose to let sleeping sharks lie, and swam with lots of Green Sea Turtles.
