We got back almost a week ago, but I have been busy with, you know, not being in Hawaii. But here, at last, are the photos:
Dreaming of Ohelo Berries
This exact photo has been taken a hundred times, including by me when I was fifteen
That there is lava, yo
That there is a volcanologist. The tall one is too.
That is snow. In Hawaii.
That is a loving Auntie.
And an uncle.
And another auntie.
Really unfair amount of cuteness....
....tends to get you a ride.
I swam under water for the very first time!
At last: the beach shots!
A nap at the beach.
Now that's what water looks like.
And that's what happiness looks like.
This, however, is what apprehension before "surfing" looks like.
But happiness again!
