Happy Halloween.


I hope that you all have a fun Halloween and eat all the candy you want. Unfortunately, my community doesn't allow for trick or treating, but I still got some candy! I think the Hubs and I should celebrate, too!

Sea Turtle Friday.

The Hubs has just completed an 8 week class as part of his submarine training. The final was an interview exam in Washington, DC and he passed! We returned to Hawaii last week. I know that over those weeks he was stressed by the pressure of the exam. However, I enjoyed it because he was able to spend more time at home. The Friday before his written exam I convinced him to come home a little early for an expedition.

I wanted to visit the North Shore in hopes of seeing some green sea turtles! We were in luck, there was a large guy sun bathing on the beach. The wildlife experts that sit on the beach to look out for the turtles estimated that he was 25-30 years old.

 Isn't this big guy handsome!

Us with the big guy.
It is hard to be a turtle, on a beach, in Hawaii, soakin' up the rays.

Polo Ponies.

Oddly, polo is popular here in Hawaii. Celebrities have polo ponies and guest players fly in from all over the world to play. They normally have matches on Sunday all summer long; which is a really fun event to gather up a group and tailgate. During the off time, the staff offers trail rides. A few months back my friend, Adrienne, and I went up to the North Shore for a trail ride on the beach.

Here are a few pictures that I played around with.

 Oh and it kept raining. Every time we dried off it rained, again. (You can see the rain!)

Too bad I can't remember my horse's name.  (Western vintage manipulation.)

 Here is Adrienne.
