Seeing skies and things with Captain Andy of Kauai

Photos by Kay Davies    

We saw beautiful skies, we saw a school of dolphins, and we saw some flying objects. Is the object in the first photo the same as the one in the second or third? Or is it something else entirely? We might never know.
Nevertheless, it was an interesting morning aboard one of the catamarans from Captain Andy on the island of Kauai, Hawaii, in December. Dick had fun snorkeling, we both enjoyed a delicious breakfast and later an equally delectable lunch, and I even succumbed to a little nap, lulled to sleep by the boat's soothing motion on the smooth blue sea.

I think aliens have taken to those mini planes because, let's face it, they're more fun and no fighter jets will target you. Lovely pictures.

love the beautiful shades of blue in your last photo, Kay, - sounds like a lovely day on the water.

Terrific captures and gorgeous skies and I love the splash of color in the first shot! Really great composition! Hope you have a wonderful weekend, Kay! Enjoy!

Those are terrific shots. Love the unique view of that first shot of the sky. Sounds like a fun trip in a warm and sunny spot. Could use a bit of warmth and sunshine myself right now!

Wow I see blue skies. Great shots and thanks for sharing!

Willa said... I envy you with your grand vacation. It look so peaceful.

Great skies, Kay. I find regional differences in English very interesting. In Australia, 'inner city suburbs' is what we call the suburbs immediately outside the central business district which we also refer to as 'the city'.

I like the first one with the red ropes.

Sounds like a great time and the skies are so beautiful. Perfect day for being out on the water.

Kay, very beautiful and perfectly relaxing. Seeing the photos I want to pack up and sail away!

Great framing with that bright orange rigging. We never know what we will see when we look up, could be beautiful skie with a strange flying object.

I was in Kauai 3 weeks ago and I loved it. I wish I was there now.

Love that blue sky! I find it soothing to sleep on a boat, too. Very relaxing in the right conditions. :) Have a great weekend.

Pretty sky. And dolphins---how much fun is that!!!!

Kay said...

Oh my! For a minute there I thought you were going to tell me you or Dick went paragliding or whatever they call that.

Looks like Capt Andy knows how to show off the best of the region. Great collection of photos, thanks for sharing with Sky Watch Friday and thanks for your kind comments on my post earlier.

Beautiful series of views of the sky.

Gattina said...

Wow ! these are skies ! makes me dream of holidays !

Lynette Killam said...

I think sailing skies are always the best, Kay! Your great pictures and commentary made it easy to smell that sea feel the heat of the sun and the lap of the water...very nice. I would have been going crazy with my camera tying to get as many dolphin pictures as I could!

Your delectable photos make me more eager than ever to go to our island state. (I have a trip scheduled for late May, and can hardly wait!)


Which sky for you?
One that is blue?
Or do you prefer
A sky that’s demure?

A sky in grey
Is soft, they say,
And not everyone
Likes the blinding sun.

Perhaps a sky
Through which geese fly
To winter havens
Away from ravens?

A rain-swept sky
That seems to cry?
O quickly choose one
Before day is done!

You didn't go snorkeling? I have never been because my husband has a perforated ear.

That coffin in my post was my son Andrew's. I couldn't down load Baxtor's from the newspaper.
