Aloha. This is being offered up for no serious reason.

We begin as did the birth of all the Hawaiian Islands... basaltic lava meets the sea on the Big Island.

And I will end, as so many tropical days do, with the legendary green flash.

As always feel free to post your pooties and woozles, or your favorite photo.  Be good humans.

***UPDATE***

Now that I have your attention I thought I'd add a few more...

A common alien species here... the cattle egret.

UPDATE REDUX

Mahalo to everyone for all the rec's and kind words are for being such good humans.  I have to head out now and leave you all to fend for yourselves.  I am sure you will do just fine without me.  Aloha!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
