Maui: Wowee!

I've been back for almost a week, but I wanted to post Maui pictures before rambling on about anything else, so...heh. Yeah! Those. (I also probably should have mentioned that I graduated at some point. So, that's neat. Not being in school is pretty friggin rad.)

Brace yourself, this is gonna be a big one. No talky, just looky.

It was a good trip. I learned a lot about my various physical weaknesses (a short list: I am bad with cold water/wind (ear-wise), high altitude, the sun, and the period of several days after a boat ride. Also, physical exertion of any kind. I never used to be such a bad traveller :-/ ) But I saw lots of pretty things, and dolphins and sea turtles and a super-rare monk seal (!!) which I don't have pictures of because my camera is not snorkel-boat suitable.

Been dyeing a bit since I got back, pictures of that to follow. I think I'm going to have to cut my dyeing down to one day a week, since it makes me a little woozy, even with the respirator (which I think needs new filter cartridges) and really stinks up the place. At least until we move and I have the space to do cold-pour. Ah well, it's not like I've got one toe in about 10 other crafts.


  1. Wowee is right! Looks like you had a great time. Great pix; thanks for sharing!

  2. Congratulations on graduating! So exciting!
    These are amazing pictures! It looks like you had a fantastic time.

    (I change the filters on the respirator I wear when I dye every eight hours...better to be safe than sorry!)

  3. Thanks!

    Yeah, I only dye for about an hour or two at a time so I'm not sure how long they've been in play...but the hardware store guy said "You'll know when you can smell things" and I definitely could today (of course I'd already presoaked a bunch of stuff and couldn't bear not to dye it anyway...)

  4. My favs are #1, #3 and #20. Awesome.

    Yeah, cold water and wind - not so fun for the ears! I'm with you on that one.

    Congrats and mahalo on graduating!

  5. Gorgeous photos. Looks like you had a great time.

  8. Those photographs are absolutely gorgeous. You should seriously consider selling some of them (if you don't already) - the compositions are stunning and I bet people would buy them in a heartbeat!
