365 Project – 129: Fish frenzy with a dolphin too! – Captain Cook’s Monument, Hawaii (May 9, 2013)

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! 🙂

365 Project – 46: Kealakekua Bay – Big Island, Hawaii (February 15, 2013)

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!

365 Project – 20, 21: Happy Hawaiian cows in Waimea – Big Island, Hawaii (January 22, 2013)

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. 🙂
