Just came back from Ninole, with a day-long flight that managed to be by far the fastest I have taken. The plane made it into the Bay Area from Honolulu in 4:19, and then had to park due to heavy winds for 40 minutes (sigh).
The house is well, with the tile work in progress and the electrical close to rough-in. That means we still have a few weeks to go, but then it’s final inspection and I can my refi done. That’s going to be a huge thing for me, finally to be out of the strictures of a construction loan!!!
The weather was mixed. Saturday was nice after around 2, and I hung out at the beach until I got a bad sunburn. Sunday was nasty, a cloudy day followed by a stormy night. As I woke up in the morning to get a coffee, I saw the streams bursting with brownish-red water and crashing down the waterfalls.
I took more pictures than usual, unfortunately in bad weather conditions. I still have to upload them all, and will add an update separately. It’s going to be the first real test of the Digital Rebel, and I will have to be clement if the colors are washed out.
