Fish Out of Water

Musings and observations about life from an East Coast native now living on the Left Coast in the California State Capitol since 2004. This fish has made her home in Madison, WI (7 years); Portland, OR (2 years); Las Vegas, NV (7 months); Middlebury, VT (3 summers); Marne-la-Vallee, a small town east of Paris, France (6 months); Middletown, CT (3 years); and Marshfield, MA, the fish's coastal hometown 40 miles south of Boston (17 years).

Location: Sacramento, California, United States


Day 335: Skyping with Mom

This morning, I was able to Skype with Mom from our hotel room in Waikiki. Her friend, MF, was visiting at the time, so she also got in on the action, as did Mr. E once he was out of the shower (including a brief topless streaking moment or two!).

I toted Big Purple (my laptop) out onto our lanai to show off the view of the ocean from our hotel. It was a bit challenging to truly appreciate the panorama, since the sky was covered by clouds and the water was a similar pale light grey colour, but I think Mom and MF still got a sense of where we are staying.

And both of them have been to Oahu in the past, so we could compare notes about what we've seen and about the tour that Mr. E and I will be taking tomorrow to Pearl Harbour.

Day 1 of our vacation included strolling around Waikiki Beach, some successful shopping at Ross and ABC Stores, time on Kuhio Beach and a swim in the ocean, a jog to and from Diamond Head with a climb to the top in the middle, pupus back at the hotel, dinner from the food truck court on The Beachwalk, drinks at Shorebird Restaurant, and finishing off with some wine and lounging back in our hotel room.
