Ribbons of glass

It's taking me time to unwind.
We spent the day laying on the beach.
For five hours.
That helped.
The water crashed onto the beach in ribbons of glass.
Breathtakingly beautiful.
I found a purple swirly shell to bring home to Brennan.
And made up a new sport.
Coconut surfing.
Who knew they were that buoyant?
Well, they are, and I held one out in front of me and body surfed in on a wave.
Fish tacos and ice cream for dinner.
Bananas are smaller and sweet.
Everyone grows them in their yard.
It is unheard of to have to buy them in the store.
Junky cars=special treatment.
I like it.
Kamaiana prices make me feel like we are flying first class everywhere we go.
There are roosters.
Lots.
They are loud.
You are supposed to take your slippers (not called flip flops) off before you go on the beach.
If you aren't alone on the beach it is "busy."
Tomorrow: shave ice.
Not shaved.
I have learned.

i feel like i'm looking at pictures in a magazine.
I wonder if it will take the entire trip to feel comfortable without my people.
Maybe that's not the goal.

Nope you won't feel comfortable without them. But you will have moments when you marvel at the ease of conversing or resting without 100 interruptions.
