My SIL (sister-in-law) Pauline is a hoot.
I wish I could bring her from Hawaii to the Owl Lab!
We came upon it while we were snorkeling and hovered over it for about 10 minutes and then it came up for air right in front of us! What an awesome experience! We could have touched it. It is against state law to touch them, chase them, or harass them in any way. But me being a law abiding citizen, I said, "no I will not touch the Honu". Pauline told me to leave the Honu Alone! Mahalo nui loa!
Unfortunately, I lost the SD card in my GoPro and couldn't photograph it. Our son Nathan took this film a few days ago of a Honu he saw while he was snorkeling off the island of Molokini.
This Honu sighting was definitely the highlight of our trip so far!
(although last night we found a remote, dark spot, to see the Milky Way and it was quite visible.)
