Little eyes.... Great Minds....

My son-in-law on R&R from Afghanistan took the following pictures. They right away have become priceless to me.

There is a small plastic blow up ball on the reef, it is headed for the open Ocean.. There was NO WAY i was going to watch that happen, so I started over the very slippery reef lava rock that is covered in algae, determined to retrieve it.


My granddaughter see me and is on the shoreline behind me in a flash.. " STAY there Malia", I say. "These rocks are slippery!"

As soon as I had the ball, I turned and said," I GOT IT!!"


Explaining to my granddaughter how plastic and the Ocean don't mix was a joy for me. Her knowing that a turtle, a dolphin, or a whale could eat this piece of plastic and how that was not a GOOD THING was an important message ..




Once i got back to the sand,she takes the ball from my hands and says, " We need to GET rid of this!" Little eyes.... Great minds!!

Beautiful pics at sunset and finally we can see you in a picture as well.
Thanks for the lesson, Leilani. Even though I am just one person, I can make a difference. Thank you for making a difference.
