Maui, last day(s)…

On our last full day on Maui, we went birding. The guys are enthusiastic birders as is to be expected because they are biologists after all.

Even though I am not even close to being a birder, I did take a very few nice bird pictures.

Personally, I enjoyed the shape of this tree as much as I enjoyed the birds.

We went to Makena Beach Park after birding where there were dangerous shore breaks. Enough so that we did not stay in the water long. Amanda is saying hello there, not asking for rescue :-).

I was happy to catch some wave action in focus—manually!

I took a few more “story” pictures. Please do tell me what you think. I have to turn in my homework tomorrow.

PS—While walking down an alley to our hotel one night we saw this mailbox…

I stopped, and stood in front, and contemplated the message and button…

The ‘Oh try it, it won’t shock you’ pulled me in. Seriously, I’ll fall for just about anything, just ask my sons.

I got a little wet. Luckily the camera was spared a drenching. Next time I see something like this, I’ll stand to the side when I press the button :-).

  1. A little poetry for your pictures:
    Birders and boarders, watchers and thinkers, waves in the sea and on ‘Hi’, kids on the sand, slanted trees on the land and “oh, just give it a try”! (and I did try to stay dry).

  2. You captured amazing water color and foam above. Humans and their phones–“But dude, the blue Pacific Ocean is right behind you!” Love the lboys surfing. My boy, at 32, is still hooked and so has to live near the Atlantic instead of living near the Gulf and us.
