I've been back for almost a week and have not posted a thing, not that I've not been busy with both good and bad...more on that later.
I thought I'd catch you up on our annual "get away from the kids, work, and miserable Ohio weather" vacation trip. This will be short on words and heavier on pics...
One of my favorite vacation activities is to cook, as I enjoy the artistic diversity of creating something that tastes as good as it looks. Unlike the Fire Department, where my creativity is stifled by a bunch of whiny cheap bastards who don't like anything that is not made of beef or potatoes, now I'm cooking for myself and can make what ever I want (nothing personal guys, you know I love ya). I took the opportunity to make some grub that makes me happy.
Some very cool flowers...there's a neat paint scheme in these for the right customer, could it be you?
We could not resist hiking to the top of this 800' waterfall in Waimea Canyon...
Polihale Beach is at the end of an old sugar cane road that is full of potholes, ruts, and craters that would swallow most 4wd trucks. Fortunately, we had the next best thing...a 4 cylinder compact rental car ;)
Polihale marks the West end of the Napali Coast, a gorgeous coastline only accessible by boat, an epic swim, or a centuries old hiking trail that covers a third of it's length. Here Christi and I are taking in the view by boat, the lazyman's option. I would love to come back in the summer time and sea kayak the coastline, camping and hiking along the way. Maybe someday?
I've got a bunch of bars to knock out, so I put my head down and got to work. A long day later, most of the steelies are done. Ti bars will get going tomorrow. Wednesday will be a long push to get Cary's Groovy Series race drawing frame fabbed up before I'm down physically for a tiny bit.
More tomorrow night,
