You've heard the philosophical question:  "If a Kahuna turns into a tree and falls in the forest, but there's no one there to hear it, does he make a sound?".  This morning on the beach we discussed a similar mystery regarding Kahuna's Monday evening appearance.  We saw him arrive, though he didn't say much.  Nobody actually saw him in the water.  And when we returned from the swim he and all his gear were gone.  So was he really there?

I may have a possible answer.  Long time readers of this blog will recall that last year we had feared that Kahuna had washed up on the beach as a large log of driftwood.  So be on the lookout for drifting logs covered covered in red seaweed.

I plan on being there tonight at 8:30. Hopefully, we will be able to see the moon.
