Canoe Paddling

IMGP0339800
This may not seem like an appropriate photo for a city daily photo blog,but if you spend time in the islands, then you too will perhaps understand how the Ocean is very much a part of our culture and lifestyle. Much of our everyday quality of living depends on the land and the ocean - Malama i ka wai - to take care of the waters that feed and nourishes us - mind, body and spirit.

I took this photo tonight during a break in my ocean training run and noticed the rain squall passing up ahead as the sun was setting and canoe paddlers seemingly paddling into the sunset. Malama i ka wai - if you smoke, don't throw your cigarette butts on the ground because it goes down the drain system and back out to the ocean, polluting the ecosystem we so cherish and depend on =)

It is a beautiful photograph and I agree the ocean is your life even as the Empire State Building is New York City and cornfields and birds, bees and bugs are mine here in Brookville.

The waves are amazing and this canoe paddling, just before the rain is stunning!
Have a great weekend and get some more lovely pics for us!

Kala,

Thanks once again from cold dreary rainy Wisconsin. We so love your pictures of Hawaii and can not wait to return in September for two glorious weeks.
