Punaluu Honu catching a few ZZZ's

Well, he really isn't sleeping, more like recharging...they come up from the depths to warm up and get some sunshine. This guy was hanging out at Kau's Punaluu beach...very cool place to enjoy the "Big Blue".
The sea turtles are always a awesome sight...I have been snorkeling and had one come up on my side and gently bump me (a little nerve wracking when you are out in the water with your face down!), I backed away (you aren't supposed to touch them or even be close to them because they can get diseases from us...) and he scooted right in front of me to start munching the algea on a rock I was in front of! Guess I was holding up the line to the salad bar! ;)

That's a really great article! You can go to it here... http://www.coastalliving.com/coastal/travel/destinations/article/0,14587,1812093,00.html

I love to eat at the Puka Puka kitchen but not so much at Cafe Pestos (to expensive and the service is very inconsistent, but I have had the best steak in my life there! Oh...and the serve a awesome Creme Brulee, mmmm). My other favorite are either Aloha Luigis (best chicken caeser salad ever!)or Ocean Sushi (awesome sushi with something for everyone) and they are both one street up from Kamehameha ave. on Keawe Street.

You do have very interesting photos in your blog. I like it. But you have to post more frequently.

I know, I know...I really do, and I love to, so my only excuse is that work keeps me so busy... :(

This is a beautiful animal and it’s a joy seeing one or more, it’s also unfortunate that it was once threatened and now listed as endangered!
