On My Way

I had a ten hour layover in LA LA land today, so I decided to walk to Manhattan Beach. I almost made it, but was waylaid by my first ever Olive Garden. 

On the way I was approached by someone asking for money. When I declined, he chased after me and said, "You cheap bast**d, I hope you die from cancer!" Ah, it's good to be on the mainland once again.

Final Beach Walk

Today was my final beach walk on Maui before heading off into the great unknown. Well, at least for a couple of months.

Aloha Maggie
 The Maui Pink Cap Swimmers said farewell this morning to Maggie who's heading back to the mainland.

Your stay with us was way too brief, Maggie.

Truly Electric

Upcountry Jacaranda trees are in full bloom right now and the color is truly electric. If you live on Maui, treat yourself with a drive along the upper and lower Kula highways this weekend.

Happy Birthday Christine

We partied into the wee hours last night celebrating Christine's birthday.

There were even three different versions of the appropriate birthday song to accompany the candle ceremony.

More Popular

Bocce Ball (a form of lawn bowling) is becoming more popular here although, this being the U.S., it tends more toward being an extreme sport. In Europe it is usually played with finesse in small marked off areas. Here, it seems, the farther you can throw the ball, the better.

Stand Up Paddling is also gaining in popularity and SUPs often rule the waves.
