Flossie

The big news of the weekend was tropical storm Flossie. It can be a bit of a pain, but it’s better to take the proper precautions and prepare for the worst.

I went with my friend to Ala Wai Boat Harbor to see to her boat. It was such a nice day, it was hard to believe that a tropical storm was approaching.

Some parts of the harbor are gross. Organic and inorganic debris:

Despite the not-so-nice conditions, one can find various marine life.

Barracuda:

Tilapia (lots of them):

A hungry spotted porcupinefish:

“Mmmm…crab.”

Homemade rat guards on Heather’s lines:

I didn’t do a whole lot on my friend’s boat, but I did manage to tie a turk’s head on the wheel:

Doing something traditional made me feel good.

After leaving the Ala Wai, we went to check up on FOC. It was good to see that things seemed to be normal.
