Happy new year!!! Wow, can’t believe that we’re almost a full month into the new year and I’m only saying that now.
Anyway, it has been almost 6 months since my last trip out. In August, we traveled back to Maui, Hawaii for another set of dives into the ocean. We started with a quick boat trip out to Molokini to dive along the back side of the preserve, then dip into a local beach, a few more from beaches on different parts of the island, a few more boat dives, and finally a close-out dive at another beach.
We encountered a lot of fish (including rarely seen Frogfish and some other species I hadn’t seen before), some turtles, other divers and snorkelers, waves, sun, sand, and lots of fun times. And as a special moment for me personally, I completed my 400th logged dive along the way. To some of you this milestone may not be a big deal but for me it was a big deal. I should have hit 400 2 years ago given all the time I had spent in instruction and my own learning, but certain world events have limited my time underwater and have shrunk my own dive circle quite considerably.
I hope you enjoy the photographs I’ve posted below.
And until next time, Maui, ALOHA and MAHALO for great times.
