Swimming companions


Honu - the green sea turtle




Puhi - the moray eel

These are older photos, made with one of those throw-away cameras, so they're not terrific.

The pictures may not be terrific, but the marine life is awesome!

Imagine having all these a stone's throw away from where you live. You are blessed with paradise on earth!

I am indeed. I can't imagine living anywhere else.

Oh man. I've never been snorkeling or deep sea diving, but I would love to do both. I may have to come visit! haha

Where's nemo?

That turtle sure reminds me of the Disney movie.

I love Hawaii. I haven't been there but I have a friend there who always manages to make me green with envy everytime she tells me how beautiful your beaches are.

Happy diving!

Florida was where I saw my first giant turtle...

It was hugh and I've never forgotten the wow of that moment.

The photo doesn't have anything in it to give perspective, but the one pictured is about three feet from stem to stern. They're not intimidated by humans who enter their word & will swim alongside unless you make threatening gestures. Of course, that's probably why there are so many less of them than in times past ...

I have always been fascinated with marine life. I am so jealous, you can go snorkeling whenever you want! Thanks for posting the pics.

My nephew is studying marine biology at a school in TEXAS, of all things, lol! I've told him he should come over here. Free room & board plus either UH or HPU (I forget which at the moment) owns an island that the students use in their studies, lol! It's even got endangered species on it. Somehow I don't think he has those benefits where he is.
