We arrived just in time to watch the 30 ft waves break on the north shore. The news reports were stating that this was the biggest swell of the winter season. It was most impressive and even sounded different than the average wave.

Lovely Photos
Enjoy your Hawaiian holiday. I am off to Tel Aviv next week - where I will enjoy another of the world's loveliest beaches, followed by a jaunt up into the Galilee. I haven't been to Hawaii in a long time. It looks just as beautiful if not moreso. Whatever happened to us two small town kids, that keeps us on the road all time? My next trip after Israel is to Baltimore. (Oops I'm forgetting Winchester, Virginia.) Try not to be TOO jealous. Happy 2012! Melissa

Hi RPM, I finally took the time to check out the new information and pictures. Loved all the pictures, especially those of the beaches at sunset. I want to nap and/or watch the whales from that hammock. The blog is still coming to our old e-mail address,so you need to change that or I won't get your blogs anymore ) : Glad you are having a great time and wonderful weather. I think of you often and am looking forward to seeing you both in Feb. No news from here. It has finally gotten cold, but no snow so far. Take care and have safe travels. I almost forgot!!! We had really goos sourdough pancakes from the starter you sent . Love, Nancy
