Me and my shadow

Haiku’s Mario Ferrer skims alongside his loyal dog Shadow on Wednesday afternoon at the north end of Baldwin Beach Park. “She loves the ocean. She loves the beach. She loves to play,” Ferrer said. “She gets super excited.” National Weather Service forecasters predict mostly sunny skies today, although numerous morning showers will be followed by scattered afternoon showers in windward and mauka areas. Leeward areas can expect isolated showers. High temperatures will range from 85 to 90 degrees, with winds blowing out of the east from 15 to 20 mph. Overnight lows will be 72 to 77. On Wednesday, surf was 2 to 4 feet at Hookipa with occasional 5-foot sets. Other areas reported zero to 2-foot swells.
