My iTunes: I Will Possess Your Heart by Death Cab for Cutie

OK, so the whole reason I wanted to go on the boat from yesterday's post was because I wanted to see sea turtles. I mean....we have all seen Finding Nemo right?!?! How awesome are those turtles? Duuuuuuuude.....

All the other things were wonderful but I couldn't wait to see them swimming around underwater. I will have more pictures from underwater later but these are good for now. We dived at Molokini which is a volcanic crater from many years and years ago. There we saw many fish and coral in all colors of the rainbow. The water was as blue as you could get and everything was within reach to touch. We then sailed over near the Maui Prince hotel where there is a reef with many sea turtles in the area. And as close as the bottom image is...I am pretty sure I have closer ones!

Enjoy the pics!

Oh and BTW, I will be doing another color project at the end of next week....thanks for reminding me Robert! I DID say late May didn't I? Wedding pics coming tomorrow!

Those turtles really were fantastic. Absolutely MADE the movie for me.

That and the seagulls. :)

Sea turtles have long been my favorite creatures on Earth. I'm now much more envious of your trip than I was before.

Can't wait to see the rest of the pics. Glad you got a housing for your camera. It was your camera you used, right?

I loved my day with the sea turtles -- though for me it was only in knee deep water. I hope you have as many wonderful memories (or maybe even more!).

Beautiful! Love that turtle shot! Also looking forward to wedding photos and project ??.

Literally breathtaking.

(I wonder if, having been to Hawaii and seen all that you have seen, if you can choose any other color than blue.)

I'm pretty certain there is one other color of blue that would be at the top on Anna's list . . .

Go Heels!

Were you not blown away by the intensity of the colors in the ocean there? I sure was. Maui and the surrounding islands are nothing if not technicolor!!

Mrs. Carson, I'm Brittany Walker, Katie's older sister. She told me about your blog and I have SO enjoyed looking at your pictures! They've really inspired me to pick up my camera again and try to learn how to new and different things.
I just wanted to let you know that I was here and how much I admire your work!

As always Anna - just stunning.

Gorgeous. Just gorgeous. I'm so jealous! Your photos are so good that I kinda feel like I was there with you. That will work for now! I'm thinking of your wedding pics as a birthday present for my eyes, so you need to post them today!! (Sunday!)
