Final morning of our Oahu break. Four days turned out to be the perfect amount of time. Some last glimpses of Waikiki beach then checked out of the hotel and explored the Bishop Museum before heading to the airport. Flight home went by fast. Alaska Airlines proved great on both legs. Don’t take us as extravagant either. First class out of San Jose actually turned out cheaper than coach from SFO. Now back to our regularly scheduled vlogs.
Day 3 of our Oahu break. Spent the day in Honolulu. Started with an early morning swim at Waikiki. Then hit the Aloha Tower, the Iolani Palace, the Honolulu Museum of Art, and the Museum’s Spaulding House. Finally had dinner at Alan Wong’s Honolulu. Went in with high expectations and they blew us away.
Day 2 of our Oahu trip. We headed to the North Shore. Saw coffee growing. Had an obligatory shave ice. Decent lunch at Turtle Bay. And marveled at the lush beauty of Oahu’s windward side.
Day 1 of a quick Oahu getaway. We lucked into a nice last-minute fare and decided why not. Monday was all about getting to San Jose airport, flying to Honolulu, seeing Pearl Harbor and the USS Arizona memorial, and checking into our Waikiki digs. Then a gorgeous sunset capped the day off nicely.
A catch-up video. The end of July and early August turned out quite busy. We had a steady stream of visitors. And I landed in the ER again. Never fear though, the issue proved very temporary. Finally we discovered that you can get great parking at Muir Woods with an EV.
Too cold. Too hot. A weird weather week. And food. Lot’s of food. Oh cute cats, too.
Weird week. It rained. Yes, in July. I did a photo lineup trying to identify the cretin who robbed our HOA. Don’t think I was successful. Got a new haircut and continued the Puck duties.
Holiday weekend seemed like a good excuse to relapse into the vlog. Rich and I spent the 4th at home in traditional San Francisco style—foggy and cold. Took on Puck duty. Cooked a lot. Then caught up with long-time pal Vince and got to know his boyfriend Scott over a boozy Sunday brunch.
Got behind on editing so I’m combining most of June into a single video. Highlights include a lunch with the very cute Justin, summer classes start, a robbery at our complex, and a bad lunch plus tacky car on the peninsula.
Took a long weekend and went to see my family in San Antonio. Back-to-back pleasant flights on United. Maybe the merger issues are in the past finally. Once back in San Francisco, I tried to get back into the swing of daily (more or less) recording. Feeling pretty good considering, a rough day or two along the way notwithstanding.
