  • Our Precious Reefs

    Pioneering undersea explorer, Dr. Sylvia Earle says that every breath of air we take comes from the sea. The ocean is important, because without it, we would not exist. “There’s plenty of water in the universe without life, but nowhere is there life without water.” And at 97% of the Earth’s water, the ocean is the life-support system for all creatures on our planet. That’s a pretty clear reason why we should care about and for our seas.

  • Shooting the Moon over Diamond Head

    awaiting the full moon over diamond headI stood outside Outrigger Waikiki on the Beach one night last week for a couple hours. I watched as the setting sun painted the shallow waters of Waikiki the softest, most beautiful blue I've ever seen. It does this almost every night, and yet each time I visit Waikiki my breath skips and I ooh and aah all over again. I know the color has something to do with the angle of the sun and the sandy ocean bottom, but I am still amazed each and every time. I've not seen this exact color of blue anywhere else in Hawaii, and as you can imagine I've seen my share of oceans at sunset. I can't begin to describe this particular blue. It's a powdery sky blue. A soft turquoise blue. It's a quiet blue. Serene blue. All this. And something else, too. Read More
