Wednesday, March 5

A few words....

I know a lot of folks really enjoy going to museums and doing fine art stuff.
 Don't misunderstand me, nothing wrong with museums and etc.
Me, well I would rather sit and watch nature's fine art in the outdoor arena.

I sat and monitored RK13 resting on a Kauai Beach for 4 hours yesterday. My shift consisted of moving her seal protection zone as necessary and educating folks that stopped by to see her.  I am so blessed to be able to be a part of helping to preserve this critically endangered animal.
as a volunteer I too, MUST adhere to the strict rules of no contact with these seals.
 My photos are taken with a long range zoom camera.

Yesterday while retrieving the mail, these spinner dolphins caught my attention. They were swimming a hundred yards off shore leaping and spinning. I can only imagine the delight of the stand up paddler and kayaker!! What a thrill to be so close and the dolphins seemed to
 enjoy the company as well.
This was maybe 1/3 of the dolphins involved, an incredible scene.
Yes, this is my kind of Fine Art Museum!!
Happy Wednesday.


  1. I am so very anxious to be there! I haven't seen Spinner Dolphins that close; plan to see the seals though.
    Sending hugs and counting days!

  2. really neat. and that sweet face...

  3. Those are amazing. I like art museums but I love nature more!

  4. Mom said we are all art-impaired. We like your art!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  5. that face is just the sweetest thing ever... and so are the dolphins, i am with you, much rather see this than a museum.

  6. I love the moss on the seal's face!!

  7. Nice detail in the first picture. Paddle boarding with Spinner Dolphins would be quite a thrill alright!

  8. I have to agree with your version of a fine art museum. The spinner dophins can be pretty amazing. We saw them a couple of times this trip jumping and spinning. I would love to be up close to a group of them.

  9. We don't have spinner's either :-) AH, such delightful photo's, thanks, you can keep them coming as far as we are concerned. The National Gallery might have a few mater pieces :-) but we think there is nothing like being there and seeing first hand. Who wants moldy of stuff anyway :-) :-) Luv's x

  10. I love that face!!!! Love it! And what a great thing you're doing.

  11. We prefer that kind of stuff ourselves!

  12. What an incredible experience they had with the dolphins! Thank you for your work to protect the seals and spread the message by educating their admirers.

  13. I'd rather be outside any day.

    Monty and Harlow

  14. PS Stop by our blog tomorrow, we have something for you!

  15. I agree with you about Nature's art - it is the very best. I love your seal and the dolphins!
