For those who don’t know it yet, I moved back to Hawaii. I am on the island of Kauai on a remote bit of the north shore between Hanalei and Haena.
This morning I woke up to a call from my friend Zane and then I went to go for a swim. I swam a bit then got up to the beach and laid on the sand. I heard a noise and then watched as an endagered monk seal flopped it’s way out of the water and headed right towards me.
I love seals. Long story.
The seal came up to me and laid next to me. I was looking at it and the beach and thinking about how pretty it all was then I realized I was supposed to put up signs around it, a responsibility I inherited from the person in the house before me. I went back to my house and got the signs and set them up…
I was wishing I had a camera, but I don’t so I asked my neighbor if I could borrow hers for a sec and I went back to take photos. She said yes and so I get to put some photos up, and show you the seal, and the view from the deck…
and the beach outcrop in front where I go swim in the mornings, now with a monk seal and my handy work
It is a good morning. Well, it is now noon. I have to go to my deck and work now.
