Photohunt: Itchy

Photohunt Itchy

This week's Photohunt theme is Itchy. I really wasn't going to post anything but changed my mind. I woke up this morning with very itchy ankles. We went to 'Iao Needle before leaving Maui. It is close to the airport and up a valley in the West Maui Mountains. It was always covered with clouds and it was no different on Thursday. Along with the needle, there is stream and a demonstration farm area highlighting plants from the Hawaiians used in their farms. There were several ponds of taro. With all the lush vegetation, stream and taro ponds - of course there were mosquitos. I got several more bites along my ankles that just now have started to itch. Unfortunately, you will find lots of mosquitoes along the rain forest areas of Maui and in the evenings - even along the beach. One small nuance to endure for Paradise

So much for the myth that there are no mosquitoes in Hawaii.


Itchy but hopefully not ouchy!

I bet they are driving you crazy!

When I first saw your picture I thought you were going to write about having itchy feet. Mosquitos sure can ruin paradise!
