So having attended my church last night (we are starting a 6 week experiment about having church on Saturday night), I cruised early to the beach. Got to Poipu, parked and started putting on my gear. That's when it hit me that I had forgotten to bring my cameras!!! They are staged near the door, near the beach towels. But today, I had already gotten a beach towel, so didn't even think to look in the appropriate area. I actually thought about driving back home to get them, but decided it wouldn't kill me to swim once in a while without photographic proof. So of course this was the day when I saw 3 octopuses. OH OF COURSE I DID.
With 3 octopuses, of course I enjoyed the swim anyway. And the two seals sleeping on the beach probably enjoyed NOT having their pix taken. So today you will be treated to some special octopuses, since I can't post without pix!
This is an octo-plate my brother-in-law gave me years ago. Cute, eh?!
This is from a comic called Rabids. If you haven't seen it, look for it. French, but no dialogue, so the language won't be a problem. Very funny show. AND the octopus on his head shoots off when you push a button on his back. Adorable.
Lego my octopus. A recent gift from sis and bro-in-law. Once people know you like octopuses, they give 'em to you.
Mosaic octopus from France aquarium.
Nice glass octopus from a friend in Southern California. And on the right, a glow in the dark one.
Harmony Kingdom octopuses. They have some amazing animal sculptures. This one's top comes off and there's a little bag of ink inside. Some people are very creative.
So though I have no proof of the octo-sightings, I did have a nice swim. And it was actually kind of freeing not to have to carry the camera. But it'll probably be a while before I forget again!
