What has eight legs but can’t run…

An octopus, silly! badum dum..
(Think I could get a job as a popsicle stick joke writer? I totally think so, how fun would that be?)

Yesterday we went for a sunset walk around Lahaina harbor where we spotted an octopus and a fish cruisin’ for some dinner of their own. Right here in our own little back yard we found mystery, intrigue and a pretty cool mini science lesson, all in one little sunset walk. It was a cool thing.


  1. Hi!! I just cam across your blog from a feature on mauidish.com. :) Don’t you jut love Star Noodle?! I love that place, but haven’t been for a while. Well, you have a great blog here! Hope you’re having a great day. Take care..

    xx Love & Aloha

    I am so jealous! Just found your blog on Lonely planet. I am in NYC now, but in a short month our family is headed to Maui for our annual summer vacation for a month! I CANNOT wait! I love the picture of the octopus! That is SO Maui. There is always a surprise waiting for you! Two summers ago we were snorkeling in Honolua Bay and a monk seal swan on shore. We’d seen them on Kauai, but never on Maui! What a treat!!!

  3. Awesome..my daughter would LOVE to see that

  4. Great photos Sarah! You know, if there were a blog award set aside for people who make me homesick you’d totally win. Hands down! I guess for now, I’ll just have to vote for you at the Nickelodeon’s Parents Connect. Again. And again.

    I think I know who your Mom is! Sweet lady. She got to work with Amy…
    Was she there when the sharks attacked the baby whale and they
    had to truck the whale THROUGH Puamana? That might have been ’07.
    Truthfully, we might move back in the next year or two. We miss it so
    very much. I think that I thought I had island fever, and we’ve figured out
    that I’ve got life fever! I’ll let you know when we head back, either in
    August or December, and we can let the kids frolic at Baby Beach!

    • @kathleen, I don’t think she was there when the whale got trucked though Puamana…that’s crazy! She was only there a short while and then they moved back to CA :( But she still chats with Amy via email…Amy is a riot!

      So good to connect with you…keep me posted on when you are back in town!

  6. What amazing pictures!!

    Awww, makes me miss Lahaina, as well.
    We lived in Puamana for 2007 and 2008.
    We still spend 4-5 weeks over Xmas, but I miss it daily!
    Baby Beach, shave ice,
    sunsets, Honolua Store/Bay, the Lava Fields, Hookipa and Paia, warm, warm, warm….

    p.s. I have seen sharks in that there harbor!

    • @kathleen, Oh Kathleen! I wish I had met you when you were here! Yes, the shark s come when they bring in the catch for the day and cut it up – my son saw them too! Eek!

      They actually had a shark sighting at Puamana last week! (p.s. my mom used to work the front desk at Puamana for a short bit in 08!)

  8. Uh.. I will be watching the sea floors for sure now.

    Very cool! Great pics too! You have your own free “aquarium” all around you. Very cool place for kids.

  10. That is so cool!

  11. Too cool! Things like that really make me wish I was still living in Hawaii.
    .-= Nicole´s last blog ..I can’t believe I found this! =-.

    • @Nicole, Did I know you used to live in Hawaii?! What island? Glad I can give you a little piece of the islands via the blog ;)

  12. Cool pictures, and that’s where I like creepy things like that in a picture! Seriously it is a neat find & my husband would’ve went gaga over it! As far as a jokster that was definitely a rimshot joke! ~hehe~
    By the way, I have a secret that Proctor & Gamble has shared with me & I’m not letting the cat out of the bag until tomorrow! If you’d like to learn more just visit my blog at http://thenewxmasdolly@blogspot.com
