Tika's not here in Kona.......................

Tika is home in Spokane with "Grandma Kay" and we're sunning ourselves in Kona, Hawaii. I did my first SNUBA dive! This is where you have on a mask and flippers and breathe through a 20 foot
tether going up to a little boat. It was awesome and the most interesting thing I spotted was this green Crown-of-Thorns. This is a poisonous and obnoxious relative of the humble sea stars (starfish). I Googled and read about it and wondered if after the tourist-snorkelers are gone if they go back and pluck up these rascals for (according to what I read) they can decimate a reef. But it was neat to spot one. Would I recommend or do SNUBA again? You betchya!!
