    John, loved your vids. Got some while diving. How do I post them, and can I correct for underwater washout?

    EDIT: PS said I had successfully sized it to 6" x 4.5". Sorry for the big size, but it WAS a large turtle

    It's the pixel dimensions you have to watch by the way, not the inches!

    >Weird Fish With Transparent Head

    what do you think the odds are that it's a man made mutation released into the wild (by accident?)?

    what would be the evolutionary purpose for a transparent head? if it was intelligent (God) or semi-intelligent (man) design at least you might be able to say, yea, that's useful for doing observations...

    Question for divers: I was swimming quietly yesterday under the surf at Fleming Beach off Maui's west shore, and I honestly thought I heard whales. There are quite a lot of whales around this time of year, but is it plausible that I actually heard them?

    2nd question: Is there Rosetta Stone course to learn "Whale"?

    I've heard whales while diving before. The sound really travels underwater.

    Since she asked, yes, she should be (mildly) upset, and she should demonstrate said emotion by throwing her shoe at you.

    John, I not only heard the whales again during 90 minutes of boogie boarding today, but it sounded like two families, with kids playing, one crying, Momma solving baby problems, Aunt Betsy weighing in with her idea of how to handle it, and Uncle Bob was trying to get laid. It was quite the audio scene!

    Roger, whatever your smokin', I want 10 grams!
    No. Seriously, I'm jealous. To think that the Rosetta Stone of whale-speak will have your name instead of mine...

    (Saved an edit when I took off the fourth dot.)

    I like the idea of just making stuff up and calling it translations. Rogetta Whale could make me rich!

    Hey John, we went out on a boating/snorkeling expedition today with guides, south of Kihei along the coast of Maui where Haleakala slopes into the ocean. It was excellent! I must have seen 40 different types of fish, plus we saw humpbacks, a pod of about 50 dolphins and about six turtles, and some amazing coastal lava flow with caves and lava tubes. One turtle was following me around for a while. I needed a power nap after our six hour outing.

    Surf is UP! The ocean on west Maui is in overdrive today! The beaches that are usually quiet and good for snorkeling are roiling with 10'-12' waves, and the usual surfing or boogie-boarding beaches are 12'-16' feet! I just spent 60 minutes getting pummeled in the "baby pool" area along with 4-5 other guys. The rip tide would carry us down the beach as we got beat to a pulp over and over by waves in close to shore, and then we'd run to where we started 75 yards back and start all over again. :-) :-) :-)

    I LOVE living in Alaska! ;-)

    Tomorrow we are going up to Haleakala to hike and mess around.
