Back to the Old Grind


That was a great trip but all good things must come to an end. I'm back at work for 4 days now, I think I finally am back on schedule. Not dragging from jet lag any more.

The last 3 days in Hawaii I spent zooming around the island catching pictures of anything I thought worthy, and all the beaches I could sqeeze in, for my dad's website that he wants to create one day. I got to experiment with my new camera in different situations. I wanted to get some surfer shots but the sea was just rough enough that there weren't many surfers out. I had hoped to find some at a place referred to by the surfers as "infinities", because of the long ride. But the waves there were too small!

I got to Shipwreck Beach, next to Poipu, where the cliff is that Dane jumped off a couple years ago, Makawehi Point. I finally found the surfers! The water was too rough for the cliff jumpers but I was really aiming to find the surfers. They put on a good show and I got some awesome shots. I was very pleased that they came out as good as they did for my first try at that kind of action photography.

So I don't know what my next trip will hold, maybe it'll be Maui and Molokai, for more pictures for dad's website. And maybe that'll be just later this year. 2 trips in one year! We'll see.

About Me

My photo
After 2 unsuccessful marriages I spent 12 years as a divorcee, only to fall prey to another man's wiles. We had a fun 5 years together and then he decided he wanted more freedom so once again I'm single.

So I'm freshly divorced at 57 and have 5 great kids and now 7 grandkids. My kids are still a major part of my life but I'm busy helping my aging parents on Kauai.

I've lived in California, Hawaii and Oklahoma before finally settling here in Washington. I love Washington and come back to visit family, friends and take care of my garden often but will be temporarily a resident of Kauai.

I've moved 30 times in my life (no, my parents weren't in the service, at least not since I was about 2) and finally planted roots when I got my little house that I've owned since '91.

My family are Jehovah's Witnesses, I've been one since '72.
