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.
