Something we could use more of.
Matsonia stuck at Pier 10 (better that than out at sea)…poor girl. I went to have a look at her.
It’s rare to see a Matson stack towering over Pier 10 these days.
There was quite a bit of traffic while I was up on Aloha Tower.

Horribly hot and humid today due to the effects of former tropical storm Ela on local weather conditions. I didn’t feel like doing my normal walk around the harbor, but I still managed to get some photos.
Matsonia safe in port after a loss of power due to engine problems:
My best flying fairy/white tern (Gygis alba) shot yet:
While watching Kauai, there was a splash in the water just a few feet from where I was standing on the pier. It was a honu.
A bit too slow with the camera:
Kauai bow lookout:
Mamo passing by Kauai:
I was very happy to have Friday off. I spent part of the afternoon on board Pi‘ilani.
Following Mikioi out of the harbor (H buoy, Cap Blanche, and Kawika in the distance):

Approaching the ship:
View along the hull from Pi‘ilani:
It was very cool to observe things from the tug. I usually watch from shore.
Also in the harbor…
