That was a nice quilty break. Did you get your postcards mailed?
Let's continue our trip, shall we? We've arrived at Poipu on the south side of our island, and we're watching Spouting Horn blow. I wish I could insert an image for scale here, because this thing is BIG, although it's hard to tell from this picture. Several stories, high, I'd guess. It spouts every few minutes, depending on the wave action from below--sort of like our version of Old Faithful! There's always a rainbow in it, at least when I'm here.
An occasional whale swims by in the background, and it is awe-inspiring to watch. This is February, so there are lots of whales out there today. Sorry, I couldn't get a good picture of one...you never know when they're going to breach or spout. They don't come when you call, either.
There is a lot of new building going on down here in Poipu. Well...that is, there WAS a lot of new building. With the economy slowing down, many new developments have halted. Here's the site of a new development that didn't quite catch on:
a 360 degree view. You've got mountains, ocean, sky...
We're on the corner of....uh...Ala Kalanikaumaka and Ala Kukia...no...Kukui'uu....um....maybe it wouldn't be such a great place to live. You'd never be able to fit your address on a standard size mailing envelope.
Let's continue down these new roads and work our way down to the beach.
Ready for a swim? There are only a few people out today enjoying the waves.
Back home again, where Mr. Bigglesworth is waiting for me to get to work making patterns and tying bows. I have quite a few pattern orders to go out--I better get busy!
Back to work for me. I hope you enjoyed your Hawaiian vacation; let's do it again soon.
