On Parole

On the heels of a swell that left the waters off Kauai’s south shore rocking and prevented dive boats from leaving Kukuiula Harbor, I went scuba diving yesterday.  You could say it was like we’d finally been released from our prison of waiting.  One of the many fish we saw was the Convict Tang Surgeonfish, a subspecies that is endemic to Hawaii.  That’s one of the interesting things about diving here.  Because the islands are so isolated, approximately 30% of the fish you’ll encounter, like the Convict Tang above, are found no where else in the world.  Cool, yeah?
