Oh give me a home where the buffalo roam
Where the deer and the antelope play
Where seldom is heard a discouraging word
And "somebody" is freezing their ass off... all day :)

Her Name Was Ha'upu
She was born in 2007 on a remote beach near Mount Ha'upu on the island of Kauai. Known to scientists as RB24, she moved to Oahu as an adult and spent most of her time on the west side. Including the last day of her life. She was a Native Hawaiian Monk Seal, an extremely endangered species with only about 1,100 left. And sadly, she had become pregnant shortly before she died. One day in October of 2013 Ha'upu came ashore to rest at Mokulēʻia on Oahu's north shore. I watched her all day while she slept. When the time finally came for her to return to the sea, an interesting thing happened. She began to swim away, but then suddenly stopped. She turned around... and looked me right in the eye. I snapped that picture just before she slipped under the waves and disappeared. Forever as it turned out. I never saw her again. Ironically, Ha'upu means... to remember. I know I will.  

If you want to read about what happened to Ha'upu go here... kauaiseals.wordpress.com/2015/04/10/loss-of-rb24/

The North Shore of Oahu
Looking down at Waimea Bay from the hills of Pūpūkea. Kaʻena Point off in the distance is about 10 miles from where I was standing.

Cynthia, country people still hate going to town :)
Karin, Backdoor is a surf break... it's the same wave as Pipeline. If you go left it's Pipe, go right, it's Backdoor.
There is a break to the right of Sunset called Backyards.

Welcome to Haleiwa
North Shore Oahu
I would never take a sunset shot at 50mph except under two simultaneously occurring conditions. 1. Her has to go to the bathroom. 2. She's driving :)

Ski Surfing?
Who knew. I watched this guy get towed by a jet ski into 4 good size waves this morning. All ended badly. The helmet was probably a good idea, but... ski poles? :)

My son  (the real photographer ) Pops up with  surf  images and he knows he will need a better lens and maybe water safety:):) I was stationed in Hawaii years ago and , my gosh, when you look at that reef a mile out with  tiny people on boards  , I may as well hover around a 72 inch TV screen::lol ::)) Thanks and your work is awesome, my friend::)):) Enjoy your weekend  ::):):))
