Ala Wai Scenes

Best intentions and all that…we didn’t make it out of the harbor this past Sunday.

There were still things of interest.

The doves made a new nest on my friend’s boat. Here are the nest and eggs moved into a flower pot:

I like porcupine fish. They are cute. I’ve named this one “Commissioner Bele”:

There was a skirmish between two small puffers. A black one was attacking a smaller brown one. It was actually a bit traumatic to watch. The small brown puffer’s only defense was to puff up:

It eventually managed to swim away. I hope it survived.
