Day 38 – Picture Story

DelMar and I went on an adventure Sunday morning. First we road to the trailhead for Kaiwa Ridge aka Pillbox. This hike goes straight up for about a quarter mile.

Day 27 – Care Package!!!

Day 19 – Homework in Paradise

Living and working in paradise has its perks. One is walking on the beach at sunrise. But a downside is I spend about 50+ hours per week working including commute time. I typically am out of the house before 8 a.m. and back by 6 p.m.  Sunrise is currently around 6:25 a.m. and sunset around... Continue Reading →

Day 17 – Monday Again

I was tired when I woke up. Guess I had too much fun this weekend. I was tired at work. Not enough coffee... Six hours of meetings, running errands after work (that took 2 hours!), and now I'm exhausted. Aloha!
