For today’s Throwback Thursday pic I found this shot taken on the Big Island of Hawaii during a snorkeling trip at Captain Cook’s Monument. The cook had thrown some food scraps overboard and these fish, and even a spinner dolphin, charged in to grab a bite. I didn’t even notice the little spinner dolphin (top right) until I looked at the photo!
It’s Friday and no Jumble because I’m travelling. I’m still going through umpteen photos from a previous trip to the Big Island. Here’s another taken during a snorkel trip to Kealakekua Bay Hawaii. When my daughter wanted a break from snorkeling she used this boogie board with a built-in underwater viewer. Brilliant! Don’t you just want to dive in? Awww…it was heaven!
No hearts, no candles, no chocolates and no kanoodling couples. No Valentine-y pic but, here’s a photo using my daughter’s Nikon Coolpix waterproof point and shoot, which is kind’ve sweet. This was taken on our last snorkeling trip on the Big Island. Not bad for a basic waterproof camera. Oh, and, Happy Valentine’s Day!
p.s. if you want to see some amazing underwater photos, check out this link with pics posted on the FairWind charter company,whom we used for our snorkeling trip. They’re awesome!
I took these while driving through Waimea on the Big Island, which is also called cowboy country, or paniolo. The reflection of the setting sun is on the Pacific Ocean. If I were a cow, this is where I’d want to live.
