Oahu anew will become Kauaianew again

 Yes, kids, we are moving back to Kauai!

My sweetheart got a nice archaeology job on Kauai, so this house is packing up for the move. It has been quite a while since we saw the lovely Garden Island, so I'm looking forward to seeing how it has changed.

I once said that I could never leave Kauai (when we make plans, God laughs). Now I realize how much I will miss some of the wonderful things about Oahu. But I won't miss the traffic!

Can you believe that they showed a photo of a lovely Plumeria flower on Jeopardy and NONE of the contestants knew what it was?! I am glad that I am able to see those wonderful Plumeria flowers on a daily basis. And I am hearing rain outside my window right now; I'll be able to wear my amazing yellow raincoat.

So let's reveal the pups and flowers and clouds I have seen lately:

This sunrise with God's rays might be a repeat, but I love it so much! There are good reasons for arising early.

Shiba Inu Tiny. I wonder if these dogs are as prevalent on the mainland.

Annato flowers

This little rescue dog is Buster. He posed so well for me. I noted the little spots under his coat; the owner said he thinks the dog is part Dalmatian.

We have had wonderful clouds recently. That's one reason I haven't see that 5 planet alignment.

Ripe Lilikoi
The valley at the top of my hard climb Akaaka street.
I need to find those green geckos. For now, this guy is enough. 

Don't these clouds look like a painting? 

The fuchsia flowers are taking a break; there was just one. And sadly, I discovered that it's hard to mail plants, so my friends are getting my cactuses....and herbs. (My eyes are leaking a little bit.)
Hole in the sky
This cactus was over 5 feet tall.

Another pup that falls into the "So stinkin' cute!" category.

The dog that licks my hand. I can't really get to him to pet him, but he eagerly comes to the fence anyway.
Succulents seem to make these tall shoots. I'm still thinking about the why of that. If you have a theory or even a fact about why, please let me know.
I hope to find some of these when we get to Kauai.
Holes in the sky

You know I love pink. Had to include the traffic signals. Otherwise, I would miss the bottom pink. Perhaps I will learn how to do Photoshop in our new place.
Palm trees for you know who.

Truly, I couldn't think up these lovely cloud designs. It definitely takes a higher power.

I enjoyed seeing the seeds on this one (hanging on the left).
God willing, I will get in that ocean again before long.

I will miss the bunny. Perhaps before we go, I'll be able to catch a video of him twinkling his nose. So cute.

Thanks for reading. I may have a brief hiatus from photos while we move. Enjoy July 4.
