Hawaii - Day Eight

August 28, 2007

Slept in until 5:30A this morning because Haunama is closed on Tuesdays. I was hoping for the south to have filled in last night as forecast but…no deal. Woke up at midnight to view the lunar eclipse…that was no big deal, the moon just looked red, like the sun looks during a big, smoky wildland fire. This morning though the moon on the ocean was beautiful. That was my view during my qigong practice.

Took a walk with the Missus down to the aquarium and natatorium…soft, warm morning, light offshores…perfect. Small background swell, the south hasn’t arrived. Rented “The Door” for an hour and enjoyed paddling and getting better at SUPing. Didn’t fall once but jumped off to cool down, weather perfect.

We all spent a couple hours at the aquarium which was well worth it. Thought we would be there an hour and spent two and a half. Great displays.

The boyz and M went for sushi, I went to Shorebird for salad bar. M joined me and we had a couple beers and took a nice walk down to the Hilton after…reminisced a bit about our previous stay there.

Honolulu NOAA wx calling for a high surf advisory tomorrow…very positive report.

  1. Lunar Eclipse here didn't look like crap!

    And why are you in Hawaii? That's no island, it's just a large volcano which is about ready to erupt.

    Good luck getting to safety when THAT happens.
