Happy Veterans’ Day

I join my voice with many to express gratitude to the men and women who have served in the United States Armed Forces, including my own dad, who fought as a guerilla in the Philippines during WWII. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

Today my DH and I spent the morning in Lahaina, Maui, and the afternoon back at the Grand Wailea Resort. The day began with a Big Breakfast,which in Hawaii includes the option portuguese sausage, eggs and rice. Yum! The condiments/utensil pack even included a skinny little packet of soy sauce. Tomorrow I might have the Spam version.

DH rented a 9’1″ board from Maui Wave Riders at Lahaina Harbor for two hours that stretched into three. The waves were a whopping 2 to 6 … inches (not feet). Well, maybe up to two feet. But he had a great time on the long, slow rollers, when he wasn’t maneuvering through the students having lessons. Then we had a wonderful burger and salad lunch at Cool Cat Cafe right across from the big Banyan Tree in the center of town. The Courthouse was our favorite historic building and we drove by other notable sites with the top down on our rented Mustang convertible.

For those who follow the podcast I co-host called Geeks on Glee, we recorded tonight despite a few technical glitches. Thanks, Skype for Mac beta! *ironic scowl* We had dinner at the Molokini Bistro and shared this awesome creme brulee for dessert. The decoration is supposed to be a volcanic eruption. It was delicious!

Knitting content: While waiting for DH, I worked on a few inches of my Gryffindor scarf from The Prisoner of Azkaban and chatted with the surf shop clerk. This is going to take a while since it’s knit in stockinette in the round. Also it’s Frog Tree cotton, which is not stretchy at all and hard on the fingers. Oh well, at least it won’t be unbearably hot or heavy.
