Speed Snorkeling

It's our anniversary-20 years so Erik took off to spend the day with me.  I only had swimming on the schedule.  He wanted to hike too but it started pouring.  I am glad he came swimming, though he didn't swim.  He just kicked but he had fun and called what I do speed snorkeling.
 A new a bird from Alaska I'd never seen before.
 The crew for today
 Erik called this a feather duster
 That is a little tiny freekled eel.
I love these, they are decorator urchins, they put pieces of coral on them for protection

Aiea Ridge

This is my new Manana I guess.  Attempt 1. I was hoping the clouds would burn off but it didn't happen.  I got to the helo pad and it started pouring plus it was windy as all get out and freezing cold.
 The ferns have been cleared so I hope the weather turns good soon.
 HTMC dug a better trail, though I thought it was fine, plus they hung some webbing
 Woah, it's a long way down, don't fall
 It was sunny somewhere for a bit
 I caught them but then turned around-no view, they had coats and went ahead
