There was a little seabird on our deck, missing one foot. We named him Nubby. He got along just fine. Cute little beggar. We saw him again a few days later.

We went snorkeling and saw giant turtles! I swam up really close to one. It was magical. I could hear his intake of breath, see his bottom row of tiny turtle teeth, and look into his ancient strange adorable murky turtle eyes. He tolerated me for a few moments, then swam off.

This is our last day in Hawaii. We are hiking up Diamond Head today.


  1. Wow, that sounds cool. We have little turtles - red-eared sliders. (Well, the older one, Fakir, lost the full "red" color; it's more faded orange, those markings.) Hardly hear anyone describe turtles fondly ;-) So that was nice to read, too.

    Hope you have a nice trip back.
