Palm Trees, Blue Skies, and Jane Takes a Tumble

We enjoyed some beach time today. Warm sun, blue skies, beautiful scenery, lovely water.....need I say more?
The beach near our hotel

I spotted an Unalaska sea otter floating in Waikiki. :)

We happened upon some folks taking ukelele lessons. What fun!

Hula lessons
Today was a lot like every other day we've had here, except that I checked out the hotel's laundry room and washed a bunch of clothes. We then walked down to Cheeseburger in Paradise for lunch, where we were impressed by a waiter who could carry serving trays on his head. We even saw him carry a full glass that way--great balance, huh? Rich was going to take a photo but the battery was dead, dang it. As we finished lunch, I was sitting very nicely in my seat when my chapstick fell out of my pocket and rolled under the table. Leaning over to pick it up, I somehow managed to set my chair off balance and the next thing I knew, I was sprawled on the floor! How embarrassing is that?! Rich looked shocked as he and one of the waiters made sure I was okay. We got a big laugh out of it and Rich was sad that he missed TWO great photo ops.
I'm having an aromatherapy massage first thing in the morning--I feel I deserve it for falling out of my chair. :)

Sounds great- except for the falling part! While at Eli's bowling tournament in Indianapolis, I went to sit down, not realizing the seat was on the edge of a step and fell forward, right on my keester. Eli had been having a rough time of it, but he couldn't help but laugh at me as I sprawled out on the floor. Glad I could be his comic relief... he did help me up at least. aiyiyi. :)
