Diamond Head

Hi Everybody!

This was a great long weekend. We intended to hike up to Diamond Head at 5 this morning (bright and early, right dad? :) BUT... instead, we moseyed on over around 5 this evening. The park closes at 6, so we made an adventure of walking back to Waikiki.

The view was still fabulous.

The greatest part of all!!!! We found a POMEGRANATE BUSH!!! I've always wanted to see one, and now that I have I think I'm going to put one on the lanai tomorrow. We also saw starfruit, lime, and mango plants.

Diamond Head another day. I love and miss you all!

We're Back!

We made it back to the island! Mike and I have successfully survived our first week of school. My classes have all been fabulous so far, and I am happy with my schedule. I got a new bike, which is bittersweet. It's an older Bianchi Volpe, which is a pretty good frame. I think I'm going to go to clinics at my favorite local bike store to learn to tune it up myself. Best of all, I've only taken the bus once or twice.

It feels good to be back, but I'm still re-acclimating to the environment. I tried my hand at surfing today, and the break definitely didn't help! I also sunburned my arm reading by the window the window this morning!

I miss everyone back home, and I'm looking forward to seeing some of you this spring!!!
