Kauai Recap

Kauai was a great time. Lots of relaxing and catching up with old friends. Ryan and Lois Ann (friends from way back) had quite the Thanksgiving gathering that included a turkey cooked Kalua style. Another highlight was hiking into an incredible spot to view the Na Pali Coastline. We also surfed, snorkeled, and ate a lot of great food. Wow, it was a much needed time away.

The reason all this was possible was because I had an art show at A. Ell Atelier. Angelique is another old friend and I was honored to have a show at her establishment. It was a great turnout. Many islanders came out and showed their support. The photo above is of a fire-dancer named Lauren that performed for the event. My lovely wife took this photo.

    elaborate on the waves please…. sapphire blue swells extending over the horizon? Perfect peeling barrels in wetsuitless waters?

    -The water was about 45 degrees at Newport yesterday. And i think the air temp was about 35

    You know, it was amazing. I wasn’t on a big mission to get surf, but I did get some. I got Hanelei and Poipu both fun, but mostly I was just cruising with my wife and friends. To be honest, I favor cold isolated surf to crowded warm water waves.
    The water was a nice temp., but since they have had a lot of rain lately it was really brown. I actually duck dove a wave and hit my head on a submersed tree limb. Talk about feeling like I was back in Oregon.
    My favorite thing about being in the islands is that I don’t feel in any way rushed. I just go into complete relaxation mode.

    Well your whole trip sounds just great, and the show was a success.

    And you’re right, something about being an Oregon surfer, makes sitting alone under a gray sky, bundled in neoprene, oddly appealing.

    All I can say is that I hope this North wind quits. It’s freezing up here ( literally!)
