I have to admit, I am a fan of the geckos. They beat the spiders here in Cali.
By the way Stodelle the wet suit is working nice up here. Thanks again.

I ended up giving the milkfish away. Gotta share with the locals! Apparently they make fish cakes out of them in Hawaii. I heard they are pretty good, but have lots of bones.

Element,
I'm glad you enjoyed our playground. It's cool that you shared your catch, that's the aloha spirit that we try to preserve. Isn't Kona water awesome? Nice pics. Maybe next time I'll be free to join you on a dive or two. Aloha.

Mahalo for letting me take a few fish from your backyard. I dove with a born and raised Big Isle boy from Honokaa. He has lots of Aunties and Uncles so I wanted to share the fish with them. I only kept what we ate and gave the rest for others to enjoy. After living 7 years in Hawaii the Aloha Spirit is something that I will never forget and cant wait to teach my son.
Aloha. Malama pono o ke kai
