Cabin Sunrise

I took this when we were staying in one of the cabins at Bellows Beach a few weeks ago.  From left to right, Manana Island, Kaohikaipu Island, and Makapu'u Head can be seen rising from the water.  I love the stillness of a windward sunrise.  For more sky images from around the world, please check out Skywatch Friday.

R: Rain, Rain

We've had crazy amounts of rain this week on the windward side of Oahu.  Even though it was taken with an iPhone while my husband was speeding down the highway, I couldn't resist posting this drive-by photo of the waterfalls that spontaneously appear on the Ko'Olau Mountain Range for just a short time when there's a downpour. There must have been over a hundred waterfalls yesterday - twelve just in this shot alone . Such a stunning phenomenon!  For more 'R' photos, please visit ABC Wednesday.

Hermit Crabs

These little guys provide loads of fun for kids who like to climb around on the black lava rocks dotting the shores of many Oahu beaches.  Hunting for them, catching them, watching them peek in and out of their shells, letting them crawl around tickling little palms, and finally releasing them...

Our New Bundle of Joy!

Well, I've tried and failed numerous times now to get back to daily photo posting.  The truth is that  it's been one heck of a busy year in our household!  In ten months we doubled the number of kids we have, from two to four.  Last December we arrived home with our newly adopted 8 year old daughter.  Then just a few weeks later, we found out we were expecting a baby - major surprise!  Blogging has taken a backseat to many other things this year.  But baby boy was born in September and is happy, healthy, and beautiful.  He is not, however, a cooperative subject for photo shoots :).  This was about the best one I could get when I attempted some beach photos with him at Waimanalo.
