A windy day in Maui

Yesterday and today have been quite windy, with wind advisories and lots of changes on the beach. 


New and interesting things to see come with the winds.  Although we have seen lots of crab holes and the occasional crab, today they are out in force, running into the surf and lounging at the top of their holes.  They were all facing toward the sun.  We couldn't decide if they were sunning themselves or tourist watching.  I didn't get a good photo - they are not easy to photograph because they are so quick.

 
For the first time we have jellyfish on the beach.  This Portugese Man of War is resting by a bottle cap to show you its size.  We don't want to step on these. 


Lots of coconuts.  If we were on a deserted island we would be breaking these open for food.  This one is resting by a crab hole.


And tons of plastic garbage.  We picked up one bag full but there is lots left for others to pick up.


Despite the wind it is really sunny and warm.  So lovely!

  1. such a shame that all the fun and "new" has to be spoilt by the plastic x Hope the fun continues and the wind doesn't get too rough x

  2. I like your pictures. The problems with plastic are big in the news but people are still paying 5 yen for a bag rather than carrying their own.

  3. Great pictures Janet and so lovely to see different things. We too are experiencing strong winds here in Southern Spain but with warm sun too which as you say makes it bearable. xx
