Thunder and Lightning!

 It is not a usual thing for us to get thunder and lightning, but we did! And also rain. That is a praise!

Lots of nice early morning colors and clouds.

Nice image on someone's truck. 

We do get the nice sunrise colors.

This dog came out of nowhere in a papaya field. We seem to have quite a few loose dogs; this one caused me no harm, but he did watch me until I was out of sight!

Taking care of the shearwaters! On base, (I now have a pass to legally get on) Alex showed me the sheltering roofs they put over the shearwater burrows. If they had discussed it with me, I would have advised that nesting on the ground is not a great plan. But they never called, so...

Rain at sea

The owner said the dog was a Siberian Husky! Smaller than I expected, but a very nice, well behaved dog.

And that's it for this week.  Have a great week.

 Thrilled to have rain! Not just a bit of coolness, but nice smell and noises.

Pink God's rays!
Moon and God's pink rays

I'm thinking it's time to learn Photoshop, so I can disappear those elec/phone lines!

Light. Clouds and Palms. Nice! Thanks for reading...

Heat destroys energy

 If I were more of a night owl, I would be in heaven: the temps drop at least 10 degrees during the night. So star viewing (highly recommend!) is definitely cooler. Yay. I'm trying not to winge about the heat, but it is hard to sit writing this with sweat dripping down my face. The price of a short commute for Alex. 

You may have noticed that I have shorter posts and pictures nowadays. There are not as many high value houses, and therefore, fewer pure bred dogs and nicely landscaped yards.   I do see nice dogs, but just not the variety I was accustomed to on Oahu. 

A bird sanctuary near us; sadly lacking in birds, but it was early morning. Perhaps they too flee the heat!

Flowers in nearby yards

Nene are the Hawaii state bird. Some folks don't like them, but I think they are cool. If a bit irritating. I sadly saw one this week that hit a power line; dead. My friend is combatting this, by putting reflective plastic tags on the lines, so the birds (mostly shearwaters) can see them. Another one was killed by a car hit.
The garden with beaucoup orchids!

Enjoy air conditioning if you have it! And thanks for reading.
