***A very mellow evening. Tonight's "Bill Of Fare" was Taco
We had a shark attack in Kihei yesterday. Thankfully, it wasn't fatal. Most of the southside beaches, from Kalama Park down to Wailea Beach, are closed for the next couple of days. Precautionary.
I think it was a residual effect of a dead whale that washed up Sunday, in the same general area that the attack occurred.
***Another photo from Bill Bowen. Taken at Ho'okipa Beach Park. His wife is from Mau'i and he still has family living here.
Mahalo to my friend Van, MAUI ACTION PHOTOS, for the continuing series of surf shots taken last week.
Memorial Day on May 28th, the unofficial start of Summer in the US, but we don't see much impact. Too close to school graduations and proms on the "mainland". Our Summer season usually starts about June 15th and lasts until Labor Day, the first Monday in September. The BIG Summer upswing actually occurs near Independence Day, July 4th.
The way that 2007 has been, so far, I am not taking any bets on how good this summer will be. I've had to cancel my vacation. Had to raid my "vacation fund" just to live this year. Thats how shitty business has been. Averaging 1/3rd of what I normally earn.
Judy and I are thinking about taking a little "get-away", in September, to Kaua'i. Won't cost much and neither of us have been off Mau'i in years.
Thanks for dropping in and I hope to see you tomorrow, after I finish my shift.
