  • Manta At Honolua Bay

    We had a sunrise whale watch yesterday that was pretty amazing. I didn’t bring my camera gear with me because the plan was to head up to Honolua Bay to snorkel afterwards (which meant leaving thousands of dollars in photo equipment in the car – which I’d rather not risk). Instead, I just brought my […]

  • 20130131 Whale Watch

    I wanted to quickly post some pics from our whale watch last Thursday. The first is a shot of a whale breaching. He did this a few times for us and I managed to get a few nice shots. You can see Molokini Crater in the background. You can see a couple more shots from […]

  • Toads & Turtles, Turtles & Toads

    Just wanted to share some photos from yesterday. The first is a shot from Ho’okipa around sunset where turtles occasionally haul out for some relaxation in the evening hours. Presumably, it’s also a great way to avoid predators since, last I checked, sharks can’t breath air. The next set are some cane toads from Haiku. […]

  • Honolua Bay – 20120519

    Almost amazingly, until yesterday, I had never swam at Honolua Bay. I’ve driven past it a ton of times, but never snorkeled there. The last time Corinne visited (about two weeks ago), she came back telling me about seeing some squid — which got me REALLY excited (I love cephalopods). I was really worried that […]

  • February Whale Watch Trip

    Corinne wanted a whale watch trip for her birthday. How could I deny that – especially when I get to go with her! One thing she really wanted to see was a spy hop. Unfortunately, as it pertains to humpbacks and especially during their time in the Hawaiian islands, spyhopping is a fairly uncommon activity. […]

  • Bathroom Guest

    Went to take a shower today and I was surprised (not startled) to see a rather large gecko chilling on the wall of the shower. For what it’s worth, I rotated the image 90 degrees. The gecko was hanging on the wall head-down. I think the original pose (vertical) detracted from the shot, so I […]

  • New (to me) Car

    Since moving, we’ve been a one-car household. For the most part, this hasn’t been a real problem since I work from home and Corinne will use the car to get to work as needed. There are three issues though. The first is that if the jeep has a problem and ends up in the garage, […]

  • Christmas on Maui

    Without any family on the islands, the routine we had fallen into for spending our holidays is gone. This year, I decided that it’d be fun to go out on a whale watch since Pacific Whale Foundation was running them still on Christmas. It’s still fairly early in the whale season here, but there are […]

  • Monk Seal Black Friday

    Instead of spending hours and hours in stupid lines to fight stupid people for stupid things that we don’t really need anyway, we set out to see if we could spot any whales from shore today. While it’s still a bit early in the season for regular shore sightings, the whales are in the area […]

  • Sunset Over Kaho’olawe

    Went out to snap some sunset pics yesterday. I decided to head south and ended up pretty much as far south you can go without looping around the other side of the island and traverse Hana. Here’s a shot with the sun setting behind Kaho’olawe from the beautiful standpoint of La Perouse Bay.
