Who'd have thought?

I stopped by kite beach for no reason in particular. I took a few pictures while chatting on the phone with Cheyenne about how our mind works, 'twas a most satisfying 10 minutes.

Meanwhile two beaches down, the Itai worked on both his tan and uncanny Sea Lion impression. Three weeks into the healing of his fractured foot, I have to say his mind is defiantly his friend. For a man that was used to being in the water daily for hours at a time, he's transitioned to his temporary non-weight bearing world with a minimum of fuss and a great attitude.

My attitude on the other hand is not so positive toward the Ironwood tree. The needles they shed poison the immediate area letting nothing grow in their vicinity except, (or so it would seem) but more Ironwoods. That being said they do provide much needed shade at Kanaha and for that lone reason, I confess to thoughts of begrudging appreciation.

We've had a fat 10-12 days of straight rain so today it was just so good to see the sun again. This thought triggered me into thinking about my brain & then I remembered this clip of Karlology which amused me, be sure to click on part two (if you make it there).

Nothing like a hula-hoop to get the show-offs out of their seats and make the uncoordinated stay glued to theirs!

Tomorrow our friend Hanna (in red) returns to her native Australia and while we don't hang out often, I'll bloody miss her. That being said, if I brazenly invite myself to stay on Lano's sofa, I'll now have two places to stay in Aus and two sources for mail order Polly Waffles!

To repay their fabricated generosity I shall come bearing gifts of Spam Mac Nuts, you know what they say, it's the thought that counts.

Hello. I always read your posts although I seldom can think of anything interesting to say. It does occur to me that you seem to be having an awful lot of fun. I guess it is contagious because you always make me smile.

Unsurprisingly, your Ma is stuck with the first picture. My first thought was towels on the beach, then I bigified the picture and they look like tents but I have my doubts and am assuming they are para-thingies.
That Itai is a handsome fellow - he wouldn't be showing off would he?
I thought hoola hoops went out in the 70s but they have obviously either never gone OR made a miraculous return to the island of Maui!

The sofa is still waiting for you, get over here, no excuse now with Hanna giving you another coastal drive option back through SE South Australia via Bells and Torquay, she is back to Melbourne I am assuming? ....anyways, stop taking pictures of GP, Kites and trees and get more photos of that cute dog that Meesh and Ulli have!!!!!!!

Anne - those para-thingies are what I recently saw 2 of my children attached to as they disappeared over the horizon! Very unnerving.
Sharon: I think your Mum needs a couple of photos of kite surfers.
Lano: As Maliko's grandma, I too was wondering why we haven't had any photos yet..
