Photo of the Day – Mirroring Mt. Hood

I took a day trip to Mt. Hood. Which, is one of the reasons I love Portland so much. You can, quite literally, drive from Mountain range to Seashore in a couple hours. Ski and surf? Why not. ๐Ÿ™‚ At one of the lakes near the base of Mt. Hood I took this photo from…

Photo of the Day – A New Day

Today’s photo is the Four Seasons Resort, Manele Bay in Lanai, Hawaii. Sure, it’s a little boosted and warped, but, with a sunrise like that, well worth it.

Photo of the Day – In The Air at Manele Bay

This was from my flight out of Hawaii. Flying over Manele Bay, The Four Seasons Resort, Hulopo’e Beach and Pu’u Pehe (sweetheart rock,) I was reminded of all the fun I had on our trip. As a science nerd, I also really enjoy how clear the water is and how much of the kelp bed…

Quote of the Day – Robert Fulghum on Greener Grass

Photo of the Day – Sunrise on the Lanai

It took all week for me to get to see a sunrise. Only because I was on vacation and had no reason to get out of bed before sunrise. Yes, I agree it is beautiful. But, I love my sleep. ๐Ÿ™‚

Photo of the Day – On Golden Pond

Heh. The pond may not be golden, nor is the golf course, but I really thought this vivid scene needs a title punchier than: “Golf course” ๐Ÿ™‚ Enjoy!

Photo of the Day – Snorkel Adventure

One of the things I was most excited to do was go snorkeling. Being a bit of a science and nature nerd, there was something so peaceful and relaxing about doing the “dead mans float” while looking at the most colorful scenery I have ever seen in my life. Thanks to the crew of the…

Photo of the Day – Ghost Crab

This photo is from the Polihua shore of the Island of Lana’i. This little guy almost got stepped on, as you can see, because he blends into the sand quite nicely. He surely wasn’t afraid of us, but took of pretty dang quickly when we got too close.
