I arrived early afternoon. No cars available. Bummer. I had to rent a very expensive Jeep.
ZipLine in West Maui. Fun! Eight lines from 400 to 1200 feet.
Intense SCUBA and whale watch expedition is almost over.
Stay tuned for photos in a few days ...
Today's SCUBA and whale watch was cancelled due to high winds.
I'll take some time to add a few photos and reorganize the page.
I moved from my timeshare at Kahana Beach Vacation Resort into a one bedroom ohana in Mahinhina -- about half a mile down the road. I'll be spending a few weeks finishing some renovations.
I did something to my back, probably working on the grounds.
I've never had such pain. Seeing doctors, acupuncture, massage,
physical therapy, chiropractor, anyone who can help.
I've had to cancel all my dance plans for now. Bummer!
I offered to buy one of the critters for dinner. The fisherman just
gave it to me upon my promise I would eat it. He refused my money. So, I
got a Safeway plastic bag from the car, filled it with sea water, and took
the octopus home. Here are links:

Octopus for Sushi Recipe
The section of the kitchen counter is 24" wide -- just so you know the scale.
I had a little fun introducing the critter to several people on the beach. Some would touch it. Some were squeamish. One little boy was fascinated but his mom wouldn't touch it so neither did he. The woman in a young couple expressed her true consciousness of feeling that this was challenge from the universe that she should take, and she reached in the bag to pet the octopus. She wouldn't pick it up, though. I thought I did my good deed for educating the world. What would you have done in her situation?
The octupus sashimi (tako poke) I bought at Safeway is waaaay better than the octopus I cooked. Until I find someone to teach me exactly how to prepare tako poke I'll leave it to the local professionals. The four kinds are kimchee, soy, lemongrass, and I forgot. All are great.
