Hawai’i

without comments

I doubt there’s anyone who reads this who did not know that Teri and I went to Hawaii at the end of August. The lure of $10 roundtrip air fare and a free condo stay were hard to resist, especially compared with the other option we were considering: the dark wet Highlands of Scotland.

We flew to the Big Island where we spent a week touring around the island, spending most of the time in Teri’s parents’ Kailua cond but also with one night in Hilo so that we could check out the volcano at our leisure. After that we took an inter-island plane to Maui where we spent four days in a hotel exploring the area around Lahaina.

We did way too much to list it all here but some highlights:

There are a lot of photos to look at but all the ones I took are in my Hawaii 2009 Collection on Flickr. Teri has been uploading hers to Flickr also but she is not complete yet, I will post her link when she is done.

Mahalo.

Laters!

without comments

Off to the Big Apple tomorrow for a few days R’n’R, will take in the major sights and show Teri my old haunts (fortunately some, like The Village Idiot, no longer exist). So likely no posts or comments approvals during that time, though I do have the WP app on the iPhone. Might twitter a little if the mood strikes, I don’t want you to miss me too much.

Laters, peeps.

Back from Alaska

without comments

Arrived back from Alaska in the wee hours of the morning after a long day’s traveling (though nothing compared to my Dad’s). No near-naked girls to report this time, instead a broken water heater leaking into the garage; just never possible to ease back into reality it seems. Hopefully the plumber man will return to install the new heater any moment, he needs to as we have piles of laundry like you wouldn’t believe.

Obviously there will be more Alaska posts to come. Right now I am sorting through 896 pictures to come up with those worth keeping. I’ll post some here but you’ll need to check out my flickr page to see them all.

Toodles for now.

Vegas, Baby

without comments

Finishing up some last-minute work on my web application, then its home tonight and Vegas in the morning! If you don’t follow my MINI blog, then you may not be aware that this weekend is A MINI Vacation in Vegas. 383 MINIs pre-registered for a long weekend of motoring and, er, spending money I am sure. Lots going on… we’re off to see Phantom of the Opera Thursday night, Friday sees us on a group jaunt to Death Valley, cruise up the Strip in the evening. Saturday I might be getting a little cosmetic modification done (to the MINI, not me!!), followed by a Poker Run and a big get together in the evening. And maybe I can throw a few quarters on the craps table, too.

Most of all its Vegas, baby. Pictures when I get back.
