I'm a Water Baby!

Anyone who really knows me, knows when water is nearby, I have to be IN it! So when we found ourselves as "just the two of us," we dove in.

The Resort Pool. Why in the world would we choose a pool when the ocean is right out our doorway? Because it was SO inviting! Water falls, a slide - and besides that, the other pool comers just lounged BY the pool, so we pretty much had the water all to ourselves.

 I have a little Olympus Camera that will shoot up to ten feet underwater. It's pretty fun to play with.

Aboard the Quicksilver for a snorkel adventure to the Molokini Crater and Turtle Town.
 I'll have to admit that we saw more snorkeling bodies, than other sea life...

 ... but the boat ride was fun, the lunch was delicious...
 ... and we did spot ONE turtle at Turtle Town, so our trip was complete.

Walked the Beach at Kihei and watched the black crabs on the black rock. There were hundreds of them and they looked like creepy spiders! Gave me the willies!

Snorkeling at Kapalua Bay.  Better than the boat excursion and less bodies to swim around.

The Very Best Water Adventure was a hop, skip and a jump down our own Ka'anapali Beach.
 at a place called Black Rock.
 the fish were prevalent...
 ... and the corral amazing.

 Randy mentioned that it was the closest to the feeling of scuba diving than any other place he had experienced.

While floating along in a state of awe, I came face to face with a giant turtle swimming up for air. It scared me to death, and I hollered for Randy who happened to have the camera!

Here is some evidence. If you listen closely, you can hear me doing some underwater yelling!

Can you "name that tune"? If you get it right, you win....
a free...

Fish Stick!!
Cracks me up every time I watch it!

Oh... and I came THIS close to trying this. Man! It looked fun!

  1. Kathryn, we went to Maui last spring and you are bringing back all the memories!! Black Rock snorkeling was so good we went there twice. That same turtle snuck up on me, too! :-) Startling, huh? Glad you got it all on film!! (or digital...)
