Paradise Revisited

I talked with our son Aaron this past weekend, across the miles. Inquired as to how he was doing.

“Pretty good for February 9.”

“Yeah? How so?”

“This is the worst time of year. We’re still in the dead of winter, even in Georgia, and football season is 200 days away. But, all things considered, I’m doing okay.”

Well, let me just add to Aaron’s stats that our laptop died, my email has been hacked, twice (my new password is so sophisticated now even I could be locked out of my email) and I recently broke a back molar eating a freaking hamburger (with a bone fragment or something?). I’m scheduled for a crown this Wednesday.

Not to mention, the southeast Idaho winter is just long, and spring is … a lot like winter.

So … You want photos?

How about pictures from Paradise?

A Kauai sunrise…

I have about 200 similarly themed photos on my i-Phone. What can I say? David and I started this year with 10 days in Paradise from 1-3-13 to 1-13-13. DOES THAT SOUND LUCKY OR WHAT?!! My sister and her husband own a home in Princeville and invited us back. (At least my husband can boast that he married a woman with an awesome sister!) My brother Eric (alias ‘Mountain Goat’) came along too. As tour guide. Since we got back I’ve been routinely revisitng Kauai through my photos.

Want to come along?

We’re in in Princeville, now.

Or is it a discussion?

We shopped at the Farmer’s Market

We gave our beet greens to a local to feed to his neighbor’s guinea pig- in exchange for his photo.

“Hey, take a photo of my best side!”

This fruit is called rambutan. (No! Not the local. The red fruit pictured below)

We ate lots of them. You bite through the soft spiny skin and out pops a large grape-like fruit.

The weather is a bit rainy, but still warm – with temps in the upper seventies.

Even during a a drenching rain.

“Run rooster run!” (Boy did he!)

We hiked anyway.

Eric found a Kauai vacation home that perhaps he could afford.

Eric, you might want to tell your wife the roof needs repairs.

Awwwwww… do I have to put a wrap on this blog?

Rooster says no!

So do the Albatross

And the palm trees

Okay, one last snuggle on the beach with David.

Oh! And a nod from a sleeping seal.
