From a high cliff overlooking a quiet bay near Honokohau, we were able to spend more than half an hour watching a mother and very young whale.  From what we were told the mother would be protecting the young one and teaching it “whale” skills.  Properly called the North Pacific Humpback Whale, the two were among an estimated 7000-8000 in the Hawaiian islands region. The images of the larger breaching whales were taken from the viewpoint on the way to Lahaina.

Spent an enjoyable few hours photographing sea turtles at Ho’okipa Beach. Many as you can see came up on the beach to rest.  Wildlife volunteers were on hand to make sure nobody came closer than 15 feet from the animals. The trick was to try to capture turtles in the waves. One only had a fraction of a second to get the light coming through the wave with the turtles silhouetted inside.  The turtles just seemed to be having fun but were probably eating seaweed and other green stuff on the rocks. Certainly fun to watch and try to photograph.

Today’s Pick

Here Daphne has spent the time to create balance with repetition juxtaposing the bright lights with the dark umbrellas. The dominant compositional theme is a duality of shapes enhanced by the somber mood leaving the eye soothed and content. Actually it was a drive by shooting through the car window in the Safeway parking lot.  The ethereal quality results because Art wouldn’t stop the car.

Give this advanced internet technology a try. Just scratch the small square below and smell the sweet fragrance of Hawaii–Plumeria ! If you have trouble try using your ring finger.  May not work on some Apple products. Still having trouble try the wonderful aroma of Maui coffee by scratching the square. Note: May require a touch of imagination for the full effect.

Using The Computer On The Beach

March 5, 2016

The first day we were here Daphne found this coral plug on the beach.  OK for Christmas lights or some small desk lamps but doesn’t work for the computer owing to lack of third ground plug. We searched for a three prong for three days.Came up with this European plug but we are in the USA so I didn’t bother to bring my Universal Plug Travel Adapter. So the search went on.Finally a good three prong so I can plug in the computer.  But because we are so close to the water I really need one with a GFI plug.  ( Ground Fault interrupter)At last a GFI plug.  Good thing we found it or you would not be getting this blog.

We found this wonderful quiet place by accident driving through upcountry Maui.  For a small donation you can find a quiet corner to read or study or walk one of two labyrinths. When you are there you just want to stay….but when you leave you can buy a memento in the gift shop to remind you of the experience. Learn more on the garden website sacredgardenmaui.com Here are a few images taken in the gardens that just caught our eye..
