Welcome to my blog. I’ve been living in Kona and enjoying the islands for over 35 years now and thought I would like to share the day of a Happy Woman in Kona. Surfer, paddler, gardener (loving that my vanilla beans are drying now). I have raised a family here. Now with 5 grandchildren all under the age of 7 yrs. I work and play every day in the warm tranquil island environment called Hawaii. Gosh, pinch me! Is it real? I say that every day!
You can read about how I got here on my real estate link. That’s the work I love, but this is the play. I incorporate both in my life everyday. My kids want me to write a book about when I arrived here, the people I met and the things I did back then. I am not that old really….yet. But that day in Hawaii is gone and today is another moment in Hawaii. My daughter talked me into getting a camera so I can capture the amazing little things. So I just got a small camera that fits in the pocket of my surf shorts, a Go Pro & she is teaching me how to use it (and not loose it) when I am out surfing or diving. I can’t wait to get proficient on the Go Pro. I am not a good photographer but my kids are. Wow they are talented. But in the upcoming months I will show some of my photography.
I plan to capture things like what happened to me the other morning, it was a deciding factor to buy the camera. I was surfing on a board my friend shaped and the sun popped up over Hualalai mountain and lit up a big cloud over the horizon with PINK light that reflected pink on the water, all the ocean turned pink. I looked out to see a pink crest starting to break! So I surfed metalic pink waves for a short while and it was a real mind blower. Hopefully I will not fumble the go pro and will capture some of these moments.
One of my favorite things to do is visit my family on Oahu. So every few weeks I go to Haleiwa on the North shore of Oahu for a visit. There are so many more beautiful sandy beaches there and I love unwinding on them. One of my past times is to beach walk & hunt for shells.
More to come!
