Too Nice to Stay Home

I really should have been doing some housework, but yesterday was such a lovely day!

First stop was FOC. Old habits die hard.

no one aboard

I was curious to see if anything was going on. No one was there. 😦 Shame, as it was a perfect day to do work on deck. Oh well. Moving on…

Natoma was heading out:


Star Princess was at Pier 10.

While I was up on the Aloha Tower observation deck, a lovely family from Boston asked me where Diamond Head was.

Oh…it’s over…there…oh…hmm…

They showed me the text in the tourist publication that said one could see Diamond Head from the tower.

I admit that I was quite dismayed that all that was visible through all of the buildings was just a small slice of mountain. No wonder they were confused!

Poor Moku Ahi. I guess someone is looking after her though. Still shiny:

Didn’t I say it was a nice day? Look at how clear the mountains are!

Gasp! A flying thing! Hawaiian Airlines plane overhead:

I saw something moving in the water. At first I thought it might be a sea turtle, but it wasn’t behaving like one:

what is it

My best guess from what I saw…some sort of large ray?

As I was watching Mokihana, a fishing boat arrived at the pier. There were already a number of boats tied up and the captain was trying to squeeze in to the space that was left. The maritime version of parallel parking.

This was not a good idea:

oh oh too close
