Devil Scorpionfish

Maui's Pink Cap swimmers celebrated Shaun's birthday today and wished Patti well on her upcoming adventures on the mainland.

Besides all the usual and unusual critters we met along the way, we also heard our first humpback whale singing of the season.

Colorful Carpet

Yet another spectacular sunset yesterday.

Orchid trees strew their flower petals beneath my feet as I approach.

Pre-Thanksgiving Swim

Most of Maui's Pink Cap swimmers were doing a five-mile swim out to the small island of Molokini; which left it to the core group of fun swimmers to do the usual Maui Sunday route.

The water was unbelievably clear and we saw lots and lots of turtles once again.

Look Closely

Rain was threatening yesterday afternoon, so playing it safe I carried an old underwater camera - which just happens to have a great macro feature. 

My biggest surprise came while choosing the oleander photo (last photo). I always thought the oleander flower is boring and uninteresting, I had no idea there was all this stuff going on in the center of the blossom. Who knew?

Earlier Sunsets

Now that winter is on its way, I'm getting to enjoy the earlier sunsets during my after-work walks. Good stuff.

Tiny Ray

A few of Maui's Pink Cap swimmers braved perfect swim conditions for a fun ocean swim this morning. 

We saw a number of Green Sea Turtles and one tiny Spotted Eagle Ray.

Slow Return to Normal

Maui's tourism is slowly returning to normal, including volleyball on the beach.

I've been watching this home going up over the past couple of months, and found it strange that the roof was the first thing constructed.

Fishies Everywhere

I'm not sure what happened to the usual swimming crowd, but five of us did show up for our usual Sunday ocean swim this morning. 

There were lots and lots of fishies and quite a few turtles as well.
