A clue... We were out geocaching along the Old Pali Road and the coordinates led to this old keyboard wrapped in plastic. Some keys were missing and we had to unscramble them. The missing letters were R I O G K C B. Can you figure it out? We didn't....

I had to email another geocacher who had found it and the clue was.....

BIG ROCK, which was nearby. We found it after we got the clue.

I got out the macro lens and took some close-ups of the leis we recieved the other day. My house smells heavenly with all of them spread around.

Those leis must have weighed 50 pounds!

Ha - Breath of Life. The new show at the Polynesian Cultural Center is about Mana, born on the islands in the South Pacific, who grows up learning the ways of his people. He falls in love with Lani and must battle to protect his new family.

Aren't these costumes pretty? Not sure how authentic they are though. The blue hula girl has on bloomers... These were taken at the Polynesian Cultural Center right before Christmas. I didn't get too many pictures as it poured most of the day, but I"ll share the few good ones I did get. More tomorrow!

I'm back!!

Aloha! Sorry it has taken me so long to get back to bloggin. I had a bunch of stuff go on, starting with a trip to Europe with my boy last April. Then it was the end of the school year, and summer came with a big move. Can you tell where we moved to by the photo above? Yep, Hawaii! It was hard leaving San Diego, but I'll be back! Until then, I will try to post a picture a day. Just one is all I think I can handle for now. There may be days when it is a story, but I know I can do one picture a day. I have a bunch to show you too, so stay tuned...
