Yawn...okay, got up went surfin' yada yada, you've heard it before. Surf small however.
Big canoe races happening close by and the parking lots jammed. Music festival also happening on the beach next door so the sounds are wafting through the air to our room.
Up to Kapalua today for some beach time and snorkling. Today is the kind of day the picture post cards are taken...reasonable breezes, puffy clouds, bright sun and ocean colors that represent all of the blues and greens. It is simply stunning.
Kapalua was long ago fished out and much of the coral died or taken but it still a spectacular setting, almost the quintessential Hawaiian scene. Many families, honeymooners, divers, numerous languages being spoken on the sand. The sand was packed with people, with several families just plopping themselves down inches from our gear...how about a little space people?!
We headed out and found some good pockets of fish. The trumpetfish are just strange, long, odd looking beastes. There was a pile of them huddled together on the bottom near some rocks.
Rumors of turtles were heard but we spotted none today. A group of scuba divers on an intro dive were being given instructions as they entered the water. Soon they vanished below the waves, only the warning flag moving along silently on top marked their progess underneath.
After the noon hour, we grew hungry, having not packed a lunch today so back to the apt for a meal.
A little snooze is in order and then back to the beach.
