Later on Day 048…

Somehow I am now a day ahead…{!-{P

A butterfly off our lanai.

Palm fronds.

A little blow…

…or a big one way out there…

Going for a dive…it is the big and rare Whale Bunny!

(The three whale photos at cropped but un-reduced in size.)

A two fisheye panorama up the coast about 12 miles.

Day 048

I woke up early (still on Mountain Standard Time!) and saw the Big Dipper by a palm tree…

Click on them a couple of times to see them full sized!

Day 047

Our first full day on Maui.  It started out early…6:25 local time. And it started raining after this. We have seen whales (even a couple on the drive up here) but nothing I can get a usable photo of. Yet. A couple are included below. {!-{P

A bird in the coconut tree offer lanai.

This was suppose to be a photo of the bird in the upper left corner.  But it left, leaving an interesting tree!

A whale watching excursion.

A blow!

Another member of the whale watching guild,

A fin!

Another fin!

A splash!

Another fin!  Two if you look close…

Then we went to Costco for supplies.  It is about 20 miles or so away.  It took an hour to get home…the traffic this time is double what it was when we were here in 2015!

One last blow in the sunset.  These are all cropped at 100%.  The whales have just been a long way out. We have seen other splashes that are huge!

Looking out from our lanai into the sunset.  This is a panorama stitched from two photos.

More tomorrow!

Day 046 – The Trip Over!

The esteemed driver on the way to Seattle…

The view from below.

Mount Rainier.

Lots and lots of windmills near Ellensburg!

A couple of days later on the train.  To Gate S10.

This is an Airbus A300 (?).  Someone screwed up big time!  There is actually leg room in coach seating!

We are loading…

More loading…

Then: Only 4747km more to go!  Or about 5 1/2 hours.


It is almost as cold outside of the airplane as it is at home!


Almost there…

Whew!  5 1/2 hours later:  Maui!


There!  (Obligatory old-school black and white in Hawaii…)

And…we left the sun at the airport.  It was pouring rain by the time we got to Lahaina.  +84F, but rain.  Unlike the 2″ per hour snow at home!  Our place at the Hona Koa is nice.  It is a little dated in places, but we have a view of the ocean!  When it quits raining, anyway…

It was raining but the wall was open to the outside at the Beach Bum BBQ & Grill!

Maui Wowie pizza!

Day 045

Happy Valentine’s Day!

No hearts, but some Holly from Snoqualmie Falls!



These are also my photo for RED from the set of cards I gave Toots for her birthday.

And one more just because…Pacific rhododendron…

~Curtis in /\/\onTana! …Or not… {!-{>

Day 044

Ummm…something new in shower doors?

~Curtis in…Idaho still? {!-{>

Day 043

Ummm…this is new…

~Curtis in…Idaho?  {!-{>

Down by the River this morning…somewhere between -7F and +3F.

A common Merganser.

Day 041

Down by the River this morning…somewhere between -7F and +3F.

The snow is deep this year!

A Mallard pair.

The lonely leftover of a party somewhere…
