Mahalo Mark and Julie for sharing your beautiful condo with us. And mahalo nui Melody and Allyn for all you do to make Hoyochi Nikko such a magical place for us to visit.
Not a rain cloud in sight this morning, just beautiful sky and ocean. Armed with the cooking skills Gus taught to me and fine-tuned by my bride, I made myself an egg-salami toasted muffin breakfast sandwich. Along with Maui coffee … heavenly. As I was reading emails and newspapers, I was missing our friends who recently went back to Minnesota. So I put them on my screen saver.
I got a huge laugh when Joe sent this picture with the caption “On the Lanai waiting for sunset!” Joe was part of the Minnesota-contingent visiting Maui and had been home just a day or so when snow hit Minnesota. Again. Record February snowfall is over 30 inches. I’d say Joe is making the best of it.
Last beach day for Karen and me. Last honu. Last fun-texture photo.
And of course, last sunset.
Karen and I were down grilling (I’m learning!) the last tri-tip. When I noticed the beautiful blue-tinted sky towards Lanai. Soon a so-so sunset dramatically filled the whole western sky in blazes of color. I couldn’t pick the best so here are a few. p.s. Thank you Karen M. for the selfie remote control!
I’m always fascinated with palm tree trimmers. After last Saturday’s storm, a few branches here were hanging by threads, so this guy saved us all from possible injury (the fronds are h-e-a-v-y) by quickly pulling them down. My dad was a phone company lineman and had climbing spikes we kids would play with but this guy used a platform that he moved up and down the tree with his arms and legs. Very strong, skilled guy!
