A Hui Hou

Doug spent his final morning on Maui playing at Little Beach, and I got the day off to accompany him.

It was heavenly. In fact he kept suggesting that we move to Maui.

A hui hou, Doug.

Farewell Doug

Maui's Pink Cap swimmers wished a fond farewell to Doug McBride as he headed off to a new life on the mainland. I will be following not far behind.

Fortunately, teardrops don't show up underwater.

Ray Day

Maui's Pink Cap swimmers celebrated the beginning of September with a ray day of an ocean adventure. I'm not sure of how many Eagle Rays we saw, but it was a lot. 

Now that my worldly possessions are on the move to Florida, I'm back to using my teeny-tiny little point-and-shoot camera. Which means the occasional settings error, like the monochrome photo below.

Late But Great

I'm late posting this week, but as far as I can remember the Maui Pink Cap swimmers had a great Sunday ocean swim. Conditions were great and we ended up playing longer than usual.

33 Days

Only 33 days until my 30 years on Maui are over. 

So, I'm continuing to savor walks through the neighborhood and evening sunsets.

Four Eagle Rays

Four friendly eagle rays kept me company this morning.

And this flounder was absolutely fearless.

Two Visits

We had another perfect morning for a Maui Pink Cap ocean swim. 

A spotted eagle ray even sought us out twice for some entertainment.

Sandy Shores

My Saturday morning walks often involve emptying lots of sand from my shoes.

Happy Birthday Anne

Lots of Maui's Pink Cap swimmers gathered to celebrate Anne's birthday with, guess what, an ocean swim.

We saw turtles, eagle rays, eels, cowries, and lots and lots of fishies.

Brief Break from Work

I took a brief break from work this morning for a fun adventure swim with some of my neighbors.

I love any opportunity to get out into the ocean.

The Few

Turnout for the usual Sunday swim was teeny-tiny once again, even though the water was clear, calm and flat. A fun time was had by all.

Too Seldom

Doug joined me on my Saturday morning walk through the neighborhood. This is his favorite view of his favorite hill.

Makena State Park is less than two miles from our house, yet we never seem to visit it.

Not Very Tasty

This morning I was lucky enough to encounter a critically endangered Hawksbill sea turtle, who looked happy as a clam.

A school of ominous Omilu swam past me a few times to determine if I was tasty enough to bother with.

Strangely enough, this Trumpetfish would rather hang out with similarly colored Yellow Tang than with other Trumpetfish.

Fun With Turtles

Maui's Pink Cap swimmers encountered lots of turtles and pretty fishies this morning. The crowd was small, but loads of fun.

I Passed

After swimming for what felt like weeks without seeing any larger sea creatures, I was rewarded this morning by a visit from EIGHT Spotted Eagle Rays. 

They were friendly and curious; often swimming right up to me to check me out. I think I passed.
