Taken at 69 Beach, Puako, Hawii At 69 Beach in Puako, there is an outcropping of lava rock jutting out from the beach. It is a haven for fish, eel and turtle. This shot was taken in about 3 feet of water, less than 10 feet from shore.

Mirror, mirror…..

DCIM100MEDIA At Honokohou National Monument above Kona, Hawaii, there is an old underwater wall, built as part of an ancient fishpond.  The wall has broken down, and as I was swimming thru the breach, I ran into this scene!
