I always long to be near the ocean to watch the waves roll in and then reach a full crest before they fold into each other.   It was nearing sunset and the crest of the wave was lit still with sunlight while the tide closest to me had reached dusk.

Finally between vacations and just uploaded a boat load of pictures to my PC. This is not one of them though. This bridge spanned a small stream below somewhere on Kauai.

Catching a few winks, this little Hawaiian Monk Seal was sleeping on a beach in Kauai.

I’m not quite sure if this is two whales but it appears so. One is breathing out from the blowhole and the other is just ready to slap his tail and go under. Whales breathe just like human only through the blowhole. IRead More →
