All Aboard

This morning's calm ocean conditions were too perfect to ignore. Out of its hiding spot in the torch ginger plants came the yellow kayak.

By 9:00 AM we were splashing our way over the reefs in search of (shhhh, don't tell) the secret snorkel spot Jeff and Joan have been raving about. A meandering young sea turtle kept us company for a while until he decided we weren't that interesting.

After sighting the landmarks - elevated walkway, 2nd palm tree to the south - we dove (truthfully, it was more of a sideways falling off manuever) into the crystal clear water. Ahhhh ... aloha, Humuhumu! Hey, Morish Idol! Mind if we hang out in your dining room for a while?

Re-boarding was more challenging than expected. But, after righting the capsized beast and retrieving an errant snorkel set from the reef below, we were sailing homewards with a freshening breeze. The swells had picked up during our hour submerged so we were able to surf right up to the House of Good Living. If a person didn't know better, it might have looked like we knew what we were doing.
