Sanna's Bag

“I never seem to have what I need when I need it. I’m going to make a belt-bag that’s bigger on the inside than on the outside, and just carry everything with me.”

Accessing our inner iguanas

For $35 we rented two beach chairs and an umbrella on Waikiki beach, and spent the entire day basking. I was amazed that DH got into it, but this vacation has been a revelation to him. He has never before taken a restful vacation. A vacation where you have nothing scheduled and no agendas. A vacation where being rather than doing is the focus. He quite enjoys it, and is surprised to find that many nagging aches and pains are gone and that he feels really good. Except for the damn sinus infection. Thank God for modern medicine. Nyquill keeps him breathing through the night, and Dayquill takes care of the upright hours.

But with the shade of the umbrella, and the factor fifty sunblock, and the gentle shushing of the waves (Waves are much quieter here than on the Oregon coast. North Shore, where the 50 foot swells are coming in must be a different story!) we did nothing for hours and were not bored.



Occasionally we would wade out and cool off.




Or we would watch the surfers.


Not really any break or surf to speak of, but a day spent waiting for a wave is better than a day at work.




Easy on the eyse - no?




Dave, the silk you dyed is a perfect sarong for my favorite swimsuit. Thank you, thank you!

And, since it IS Ass Watch Wednesday - - -

    There is no way, you've had any kind of snow there.

    It looks very relaxing.

    Roxie, as you know, finals week can be hell. Ass Watch Wednesday may very well be the highlight of my week. Thanks for the chuckle! Glad you are having a splendid time! We have had temperatures below 10 around here. We envy your tropical holiday!

    I hope you go to see Pearl Hatrbor. It is so moving.....
    a hop to Kauai is great...it is so beautiful there--the garden island!!!! I preferred it over Oahu or Maui. Maui took 2nd place.

    Just about a perfect day. Where's the cabana boy with the umbrella drinks?

    There's a lot to be said for sitting on the sand watching the waves come in!
