He ua pii mai Hookipa
The rain is approaching
.. . Hookipa is a beautiful beach and there is a nearby overlook where you may walk down to the delta and enjoy a nice perspective at sunset .. the golden beach is quite large and it is a beautiful place to relax and enjoy watching the surfing professionals and local fishermen and women . children love it too . the seas are rough so one only swims in this area if experienced .. the Pailolo Channel between Maui and Moloka'i is one of the windiest and roughest channels between the islands . in the view here Moloka'i is on the horizon on the left just outside the frame .. the channel is about 7.5 miles wide .
You may see Humpback Whales in winter as they breed . calve and swim around Maui from November through May when they are on their annual migration . that is always a joy to see the whales. often I see the beautiful and endangered Hawaiian Monk Seals .. and the beautiful and sacred Honu . the Hawaiian Green Sea Turtles .. They love to roll in the waves and feed on limu on the lava rocks .. There are often so many people around the turtles do not often come onto the beach here .. so often it is so very windy and you will eat alot of sand .. so wear a hat that you can strap on . and bring plenty fresh water and fruit . if you want long exposures and good photographs you will need to bring along your tripod . there are restrooms facilities . showers as well as a nice covered piknik area .. many things to see and do .
.. it is what I call the wild side . Maui North Shore . it is open ocean and the wave action can be truly amazing . . It is a beautiful place to watch the wind surfers . . and with the water reflecting the sky sometimes the colours are astonishingly beautiful . this photograph is straight from the camera . . no filter . the interesting thing is the white balance setting I chose on this day . cloudy . it worked a bit of magic revealing the beautiful shades of aquamarine and blues of the water .. I may create a video that I think you may enjoy
