The First Few Hours

To celebrate my release from work for two weeks, I called OC and arranged to meet him at the halfway point on his commute.  That left me with two hours of waiting time.  There was no way I was going home.  Too many chores there.

I needed a soda –hadn’t had one all day.  I zipped through a fast food joint and then — wetted and caffeinated — headed for Kapolei.  The eight mile drive took an hour and a half.  That’s because I let my camera navigate.  We visited a stretch of the shore we’d never explored before.

On the appointed hour, I met OC at The Boat.  We went to Kapolei and took a leisurely walk through the city park.  I haven’t downloaded my camera yet, but am anticipating sharing more exotic blossoms soon — including photos of the elusive Autograph Tree blossom.  After our walks, we went to our favorite local cafe and had a light meal.  Then OC drove home.  I slept.

I am about to make breakfast this morning, then we’re going off to work the church carwash.  Tomorrow we have church in the morning and a potluck gathering with OC’s coworkers in the afternoon.  I don’t know when I’ll be able to post photos.  Stay tuned.

Quilly is the pseudonym of Charlene L. Amsden, who lives on The Big Island in Hawaii. When she is not hanging out with Amoeba, she is likely teaching or sewing. Or she could be cooking, taking photographs, or even writing. But if she's not doing any of that, she's probably on Facebook or tinkering with her blog.


  1. Polona — OC has many things planned for me. I’ll keep you posted!

    Dr. John — breathe!

    Bill — I’m hoping to catch up on my sleep!

    Doug — Happy Palm Sunday to you. We’ll be the folks glowing in the fourth pew — we’re a bit sunburnt.
