Lava Shoot by Boat!

October 13, 2016:  Site Seeing by Boat – An Excellent way to view the Lava at its newest Ocean entry!

The night before; “I’m setting the alarm clock early enough to leave for Hilo by what time?” was my slow, incredulous question. When the answer was, “2:00 o’clock am,” I took a long pause to consider what that would mean for me 😮

The Answer… “Very little sleep!” 😐 …

Then I thought, “Wait, Andy will be driving. I can sleep on the way!” And I Did! 😀 “To the Flow by Sea”, Andy’s recount of this drive to Hilo and beyond.


A Cast of Crab!

Yarrow’s Spiny Lizard (Sceloporus jarrovi)…

Photographed on Mt Wrightson!

My friend, Dean Salman (http://www.greatscenery.com), captured this GORGEOUS photograph of a Yarrow’s Spiny Lizard (Sceloporus jarrovi) near the summit of Mt. Wrightson while hiking on October 11, 2009!

They are generally found in Southeast Arizona and Southwest New Mexico, also into Mexico (ref: National Audubon Society Field Guide to North American Reptiles & Amphibians, Pages 522-523 and Plates 353, 1979).

This link to the Online Field Guide to The Reptiles and Amphibians of Arizona Website by Thomas C. Brennan, has some extensive information about them, as well as many others found in Arizona.

Same Blog, Different Tool!

Hello Family, Friends, and Visitors!

Yep, I am migrating my Blog from my Previous Software (PS) to WordPress. My PS had failed to save my works-in-progress WAY too many times. 😡

I have abandoned it now and use it to get the transfers to WordPress accurate.

You have probably noticed (or will notice, soon) that my old Blog is somewhat “interesting” now (or you get forwarded automatically).

When my account was updated to work with WordPress, something in my PS did not like the change. 😐

Result: Some miscellaneous characters; and most important, it will not let me post, edit, delete or even access my admin pages.

My new Blog URL is……


Tag along on an AWESOME dive with us…

Mark is one of several regulars to our dive parties.

He has put together another great video of diving adventures aboard the Aqua Safari around the Big Island!

This dive was on August 17, 2014. A Nitrox Dive – special certification required.

It is a special treat for me to watch these videos, especially on the dives that I was unable to take part in. Thank You Mark! 😀
