Beautiful Day!!

Beautiful sunrise sky…… lovely day with red flags out but water visibility is clearing up so maybe tomorrow.  Winds are variable which brings the Vog over so there was barely a sunset.   I saw two people out swimming at dusk right where the lady got attacked by the shark almost three weeks ago…… not smart!  I miss my turtles!

Leg Cramps!!

Oh my gosh it’s been SO crowded at our beach with tourists!  I guess with all the horrid weather on the mainland ….. everyone wants to come to Maui.  I guess I can’t blame them.  I got my back injection last Thursday and so far there is minimal improvement.  I am walking better and have been able to back off the pain medication …. but paddling is not happening yet which I had hoped for.  Even swimming still hurts….. and today I ended up with bad leg cramps in both legs which I then could barely move!  This big turtle stayed with me as I kept filming and then it swam around and right under me!  Do you think it sensed my dilemma?  It sure seemed like it.

Beautiful Turtle Day!

Back in the Water!!

After another swell kept me out of the water…… it finally dropped yesterday and I was able to get out swimming.  The wind was threatening but I went out anyway.  I made it down to the coral and three turtles came up.  I was so happy to see them!  Suddenly the wind got pretty crazy and soon the turtles and I were getting tossed around.  Then the water visibility got worse so I decided to swim back.  As expected… the swim back was tough and it took forever.  The wind stayed throughout the day.  I am still struggling with my back/leg pain so still not able to get out Paddling but yesterday I finally was able to get my back injection.  Hopefully this will help me.  I sure hope so….

Back In The Water!!

After weeks of inclement weather and poor ocean conditions….. today was nice!  The day was sunny with lots of blue sky.  The water visibility wasn’t great…. but I still had six lovely turtles!  It felt great to swim again and see my turtles….. I hope it’s nice tomorrow!

Stormy Morning…

It wasn’t raining….. and it wasn’t windy….. yet the water visibility down at the coral was minimal.  It sure looked stormy, though, and got grayer by the hour!  I had tbeee turtles ( that I could see…)… and a school of Ulua’s today.  It was a great swim!

Seven Turtles!!

It’s been so nice on Maui!  The water temperature has dipped though…. now about 78 degrees.  It might not sound that cold…. but when you have nerve pain in your legs….it is very uncomfortable!  I did order a wetsuit today, though,  and I’m hoping that helps!   I had seven lovely turtles to swim with today and it was great.  Hopefully the water warms up a few degrees! I was able to get out on my board on Friday and Sunday with help….
