On our first full day in Hawaii, we took Kel and Mira to Blackrock
to snorkel because turtles are regularly seen there.
Neither saw turtles that day but ended up enjoying snorkeling.
While watching them, I couldn’t help but notice this striking sailboat that pulled into the bay.
As it turned out, it was the sister ship to the one we took out the next day.
We spent the second half of the day back at the condo while Margaret picked up Cory and Kylan. Naturally, I checked out the birds like this Common Myna,
a “first” for me but one we saw everywhere we went on Maui.
This Bird of Paradise
wasn’t a first for me, but it was certainly one of the most distinctive flowers we saw on Maui.
