    This has to be one of the coolest webcams on the planet. Here's the link to the news piece on it. They interview the UH Hilo professor and some of his staff & students. https://www.hawaiinewsnow.com/2021/09/16/must-see-tv-people-cant-get-enough-this-uh-hilo-livestream-life-under-sea/ Here's the...

    A nice place to hang out on a Friday evening enjoying a good book and a glass of wine.

    On Sunday my wife and I commissioned another painting from Peter Shepard Cole. This one will be 66" x 44" and it will be based on a photo I shot a few years ago. Given Peter's excitement level for the project I'm really looking forward to seeing his interpretation of the photo taken in one of...

    My daughter is definitely enjoying her job as the science outreach coordinator for Malama Pupukea Waimea foundation. Here's one of her new friends that she has seen in the same basic area for 3 days in a row. He's some type of frog fish. My daughter told me the longer name over the phone, but I...

    Thanks Will! My wife and her cousin will be psyched to hear your comments on the painting and frame. My daughter will enjoy your comments on the cabinet (she's the one who found it) and the sculpture (I think she made that in 8th grade).

    My wife finally finished making a frame for a painting that her cousin Peter Cole made for her birthday last year. To be fair, it took her a while to find the perfect pieces of driftwood. https://petershepardcole.com/home.html She also picked the perfect spot in our dining room to hang...

    My cousin Joe, his wife, and his two kids are visiting me on Oahu. His son Haru (11) and daughter Yuxu (9) did some serious research on what they wanted to do on the North Shore. They have had many adventures since being here for 1 week. These are two of their favorite activities - Banzai Skate...

    On Saturday morning we did a family swim & SUP adventure from Three Tables Beach down to Waimea Bay so we could watch my father-in-law compete in the 1st race of the North Shore Swim Series. As my daughter and I were approaching an anchored sailboat we came across a huge school of small silver...

    I'm flying back to Hawaii on Wednesday so Monday night is the new Wednesday morning. The Tuesday meeting calendar looks to be a complete sh!t show so Tuesday is not an option. Anyway...the Saturday project was to replace the last few incandescent bulbs with LEDs and apply a few maintenance coats...

    My daughters were swimming at Waimea Bay today and my youngest saw a new snorkel on the bottom. She dove down ~15 ft to get it and take it to the beach. When she got there she realized that a baby octopus was living in the snorkel. They released it into the wild after taking a few pictures and...

    One of the weekend projects - new lettering on Kolibri that provides much better contrast than the previous color. I also removed the old Shipmate fireplace and started prep work for installation of the Dickinson Marine Cozy Cabin Heater. Oh...I spent a ton of time on my SUP checking out...
