Some days are just perfect.....

Sunrise 1.19.16
Gracie's health continues to improve--- can I get 3 cheers for that!! I took her along this morning to get the mail and to meet my friend Julie for a seal trek.  Gracie stole Julie's heart and a few belly rubs.  Think my girl is making a come back and I like that!!



Today was a wildlife filled day...spinner dolphins, seals, turtles, albatross and whales, all thing that make my heart happy.  It was such a blessing to sit and observe the beauty that surrounded me. My tank needed filling and today I got a tank of premium fuel!

 As Julie and I were scanning the horizon looking for whales, we watched as 2, yes 2 adult whales simultaneously do a full body breach. WOW!!  Julie and I looked at each other and said, "that gave me chicken skin!" FYI: here in Hawaii we use the term "chicken skin" aka goose bumps. Unfortunately I have no photo proof, but believe me it's etched in my brain. It was an awesome powerful moment - not to mention one heck of a splash!

The following are some shots of my tank filling day!! Hope you enjoy.

miles of walking on the sand makes for a great leg workout.  PC: Julie Honnert

the albatross were checking us out, it was like we could have reached out and touched them.
