Stolen Christmas Lights

Last night my nephews were so excited as they saw their Christmas lights put up and even had rudolph the reindeer included. They had a sleepover and when the woke up they saw someone stole their reindeer and ripped off some of their Christmas lights. How's that? What kind of person would even consider doing such a horrible thing?

Cops came over and everything! Filed a report and set the neighborhood watch in motion so the next time they think of coming by....BEWARE OF DOG! I guess it's so sad to see the economy taking its toll on some people. Maybe it was some kids on a dare or adults who just don't care... in any case they must need a lot of prayer! Feel like a poet...and don't even know it:)

Hanauma Bay

Today I had a early photo shoot at Hanauma bay. I haven't been here in years and it's no wonder why so many tourists come here for the spectacular views and friendly fish. If you are local then it's free but tourists pay over $7.00 to get in. I paddled outside the breakers with a $1 inflatable flourescent red mattress as the lifeguards thought I was either crazy or ready to be saved. There reef was sticking out where you see waves and no wonder the mattress did not pop as I charged over the reef.
Then James aka "McGuyver" calls to go over and see the HGEA craft fair. Lot's of nick nacks and food items to buy.

And I come across my friend Alan Watanabe from "SUMO BENTO" selling plate lunches. They have been doing this for years and was stoked to see him again. Thanks for the grinds! Weather should be clearing up in the next few days and winds backing down a little so get ready to go dive or surf.

Dream on

Lot's of fun surf been coming through our islands so not much diving at the moment. Today is small so good day to get on the computer and get some work done to start planning our next trip. Last year we got some great surf in Indonesia and I think we will need to revisit some of our secret spots real soon. Here's a shot Renee Vento captured at a fun right-hander with just four of us out. I can't wait to surf it again! Until then, I can only dream on!

Churaumi Aquarium

On our visit to Okinawa we got to see the Churaumi Aquarium. It was a long drive north but well worth it. Huge Uluas, Tunas, and even Whale sharks can be seen in the main tank. You need at least 2 hours to get to see all the exhibits and if you are lucky can even see the feeding of the Whale sharks. Okinawa is really a relaxed place and the people are so friendly. I can't wait to go back for another visit. Mensore!
