For those of you who think I’ve abandoned color.

A portion of Honolulu… You can see Hawaii’s state bird over there in the upper right corner.

Meanwhile, back in Kailua . . .

Sunset in Waikiki

Sweetie, Brother and Sister-in-Law and I took some “us” time last night. We sat in a cabana at the Mai Tai Bar at the Royal Hawaiian hotel (the oldest hotel on Waikiki Beach), enjoyed our drinks, talked, laughed, and of course, enjoyed the sunset.

We weren’t the only ones . . .

Working Vacation

Sweetie and I are in Hawaii right now with his brother and wife to assist his mom in packing up a part of her household items. Her husband is in the last months of his life and we are having to go through things to toss, keep, donate. Good family time, but trying. Still Sweetie and I managed to get to the beach yesterday. Not sure when we’ll be able to get back though.

Windsurfers. Kailua, Hawaii.
