Day 071

I took some fisheye photos this morning, to make this…interesting…panorama! This is the Rainbow Dam trestle. Or the bottom of it!  To showcase the awesome power of the fisheye lens (at least in panorama!), note my car, which was about eight feet to my left, is at the top, while my shadow (and toes!) are […]

Day 070

The evening after the first whale watching cruise… *** *** ~Curtis on /\/\aui! {!-{>

Day 055

We went whale watching again today.  Some good sightings, but nothing too spectacular.  More on that later.  The Moon was out!  And it is Full Moon the day after we leave.  This morning WAY too early there was a nice view of the Moon over the Hawaiian waters, but scaffolding got in the way…so here […]

An Extra!

Kealia Pond National Wildlife Refuge, between Kihei and Ma’alaea, on /\/\aui! This is a coastal salt marsh the highway cuts through.  It often has a variety of birds, and we went on down this evening. This is a Black-Crowned Night-Heron. The light was fading fast as the sun set, and it was cloudy and raining […]

Day 050: The Beach!

We did actually have a sunny day on the Beach! All of us. All of us AND the beach. A four photo panorama of the beach.  Click a couple of times to enlarge; BACK to return! Just the beach. *** ~Curtis on /\/\aui! {!-{>

Day 049

Not a lot happening today.  It was rainy, and we had to drive to the airport to pickup the Dailylife Daughter #2. A rare self-portrait! We stopped at the Maui Tropical Plantation (I think that is the name…).  It has a tram trip through the gardens, and an excellent gift shop! Timing was wrong for […]

A special edition!

Clouds from the flight over! * * * * * * The first glimpse of Maui…through the clouds, of course! ~Curtis on /\/\aui! {!-{>

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 […]

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 […]

Misc. Photos and Stuff

A few from the past!  I was sorting through an old bunch of CD Archives… The Durango and Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad.  Once upon a time I had this as wallpaper…but in a much large format!  It was scanned from a calendar photo. A bad way to start a Monday. And you women don’t think […]
