So I had this great idea....

I went snorkeling this morning in the hopes of finding lots of fish and some turtles but the water conditions were less than ideal. It was a little too murky for any good clear shots around the reef so I thought I would swim out past the point where the surfers were and shoot some waves.

Have you ever been inside a washing machine?

Note to self; you are not 25 anymore!

I was extremely tired after an hour of this so I came home and took a nap.

I guess it has been a while since I have posted anything.  The old addage "time flys when you're having fun" is apparently true.

As much as I hate to admit it, this was taken with a cell phone. I was enjoying an amazing sunset with a friend and we had decided to leave the cameras at home and just enjoy paradise however,

the sunset was just too amazing to pass up. A rainbow on one end and the sunset on the other. She slapped me on the back of my head for getting out my phone but then she did the same thing!

It's just hard to pass something like this up!

See same weather as Maui...

Who needs to go to Maui?

We are having the same balmy weather here on Northern Vancouver Island! LOL

These are a couple of pictures from Quatse Lake, for what it's worth this is the first bit of snow we've had this season. Fingers crossed this is all we're going to get!

Getting Frosty!

We had a winter storm here over the weekend. The top of Haleakala got snow and it's still there today. 

The storm was expected but it got worse than they thought it would. Hurricane force winds on Haleakala Sunday. A lot of the isalnd lost power and internet for a day, some people two (inlcuding me) and they closed the summit or I would have been up there taking more photos. This one was taken from my yard.

It has been cold and rainy for the last few days and Sunday we had 85mph winds. It got down to 35 degrees at my house and I had to wear long pants with shoes and socks!

I think it's time to head down the moutnain and find a warm beach!

Funky Mushrooms!

Funky Mushrooms also known as "Amanita muscaria". Though they look like tasty little treats you definitely don't want to eat these ones!

Just a wave

I went kayaking on Tuesday in hopes of seeing some whales but that didn't happen. There are fewer whales here this season so I am going to have to go farther out and stay out longer I think. 

Instead of whale photos I ended up with a little wave as I was pulling the kayak out of the ocean.

I tried to take pictures of the "Lunar Eclypse" Last night but it got photobombed by the Earth's shadow...

Go Figure!

Great day for pictures!

The rain and wind finally ended over here on Canada's Wet Coast!
(At least for a couple of days...)

Mele Kalikimaka....

....from a lazy photographer!

I spent Christmas Eve watching a beautiful sunset with a very good friend and I can't think of a better way to have spent the evening. Neither one of us had our cameras with us so I had to resort to a cell phone photo. It's a terrible thing when that happens but we had worked three art shows in a row and we decided Christmas Eve and Christmas day would be a no work zone. 

Today will be an all day at the beach. They call it the three B's here. Beach, beer and a babe. Yes, it's probably a politically incorrect statement but it does seem to fit and the babe part of the saying doesn't mind in my case. There will be photographs today since she will be trying out a new GoPro 7 so hopefully I can post a few in a couple of days, providing she let's me play with the new camera!

Merry Christmas!


Merry Christmas!
