Aloha Hawaii...

I had a lovely little routine going on my trip. I'd get up and go for a walk and sweat like never before. Then, I'd stop in at Starbucks to get a frosty beverage, which I'd take to a bench across the street where I could enjoy the scenery.

Then I'd meet Miss Sassyhair on the beach, for some sunning and swimming. This is the view we enjoyed most days (and yes, that is my toe.) She was smart to suggest the renting of umbrellas on the beach, especially since I'd already toasted my back on my first day there. The beach umbrella is my new best friend.
Then, we'd clean up and enjoy cocktails in the evening, sometimes in pineapples...

(I'm still trying to figure out why my nose looks so enormous in this picture.)


My favorite flower anywhere: the plumeria. I was pleased that the lei stand I found on my last trip -- the only one I could find in Waikiki -- was still there, and the women running it were as warm and wonderful as ever (and gave me extra flowers every time I stopped by).
Diamond Head. I didn't hike it this time. Once is enough.

And my word, but your hair is much lighter, too. Almost blonde. Is that a trick of the light, or did you get it lightened?

Wonderful pictures all around. Thanks a ton for positing!

jon, yes... it was just terrible...

pirate, i think part of that is the light....but i did have brighter highlights for the summer. they're darker, as of this past weekend. more coppery.

that was more than anyone wanted to know, i'm sure...

I, for one, am happy to read about your highlights.

I think the picture of you with the pineapple drink is absolutely adorable!!

*sniff, sniff* I can almost smell the plumeria from here.

Man, what is it about the ocean??? I took so many pictures of my beloved Lake Huron this summer and I still think it's beautiful there, but the ocean!!!! The colour of the water, the sky, the clouds, everything. Just gorgeous.

I've only ever seen the Atlantic, but I've seen it from three different countries. No, four! England, Wales, USA (Florider) and Canada (Halifax.)

Someday we will see the Pacific...
