Same Time Last Year

This afternoon as I was pulling on an extra sweater I realized that exactly one year ago today MDH and I were sitting on Poipu Beach in Kauai, sucking down fruity cocktails and looking out at the Pacific Ocean trying to spot humpback whales, or hump spotback whales, I don't know, we were pretty tanked. Since I'm having such a hard time writing lately, here are some pictures.

The view from my lounge chair.

MDH busted (from our balcony with the handy zoom lens) taking a break from grilling our dinner.

A monk seal stopped by for a nap as well. (Don't worry she's not dead, just sleeping.)

Above the taro fields - we'll go back someday...
Damn, it's cold here today.

That photo of MDH lying on a hammock in that beautiful weather with such beautifully blue water is the picture of serenity.

I would so love to be tanked on a fruity cocktail right now.

Dying of jealousy. Or maybe I'm just sleeping like a seal out of jealousy.

I was all excited because the temperature here has warmed up to a balmy minus 13 degrees tonight and then you go posting pix like those. Damn you woman. :)

I would love to be somewhere that beautiful with a fruity drink right now. I also love those grins on your faces. Like "SUCK THIS, FUCKERS!"

Ugh. This only serves as a reminder that we're supposed to get a wicked snowstorm this weekend.

I'm so jealous of your past...Or that past, anyway.

Such a beautiful place. That was my favorite island when I was stationed in Hawaii.
