There’s a bit of sadness attached to snorkeling or diving the Hawaiian reefs these days. The reefs have just not been the same since the coral bleaching event of 2014-2015. There’s a lot less coral around and considerably fewer fish. Sadder yet, we appear to be headed into more bleaching this year. But there are still a lot of fish around. The other day Marla and I swam through this enormous school of Barred Jacks at Hapuna Beach. Seeing this abundance, similar to that still often encountered in Bali and other South Pacific locations, lifted our spirits. A little, anyway.
