hawaii is warm. that's may seem like a strange thing to report but no matter what the weather is here, it's the same temperature. it's taking me some time to get my head wrapped around it. when i was in grade 1, there was a boy, BJ, in grade 3 who had gone to hawaii for a vacation and when he returned, he told our class that when it rains in hawaii, it's warm outside still. i've never understood. and now, here i am, and BJ, i want you to know now that i understand. the rain is warm. and it will rain for two minutes and be finished. i love that.
so i'm continuing this post from yesterday. this morning we did the classic "get up at 6am to go surfing". but it's a little different when you're trying to go to one place with 16 people. impressively, we were out the door only 15 minutes late to meet domi at the beach. the beach that we're at here at our pink house is in a bay so it's calm and is great for kayaking, jetskiing, paddleboarding, etc. just not surfing. so we drove to a better surf beach about an hour away and a handful of people got a domi-lesson. tim and i were two of the people who hung out on the beach and watched. :)
and this afternoon is watersports off our own beach here at the pink house. jet skiing and paddleboarding (which is just looks like standing on a surfboard and paddling) pics to come in the next couple days.
