I would say I'm chillin', but it's hot here in Kekaha, Kauai!

I send a postcard to a nice lady in Texas each week. This is apparently a comet. Who knew?

I found this Ulysses S. Grant on the ground outside our post office! Early in the morning. I have decided to send it to my new grand-niece, just over 2 months old, so she can start her savings account.

Oddly, most people at church claimed that the bill was theirs...hahaha...nah! I told them if they could give me the serial number, I would consider it.

Early morning rain offshore

Someone left their life preserver on the rocks. Hope they didn't need it anymore.
I used to see these pretty fuchsia flowers all the time on Oahu. Not so much here.

And pink puffballs are not as numerous here either.
For my morning walk in Eleele town, I parked near the corner of Uliuli and Eleele. (Ooh-lee ooh-lee and L-ee L-ee). Sounded funny together.

She was probably thinking: Isn't it time to give me a treat?!

Her best neighbor friend
She needed a friend this week: she was bored and dug a hole in the back yard. She knew she was in trouble, too!

I found an open seed pod from a Crown Flower plant.

Delicate flower

The pod breaks open and the seeds fly around.
Walking on base, I heard these two choppers before they appeared, so I was able to catch a photo.

I think it was a Meadowlark! I have only seen one other one on Kauai.

There was a flock of 11 Frigate birds on the wing, but they appeared too small with my photo. We take those as harbingers of storms at sea.

I got all these cans and bottles in one day's walk. Sometimes I forget to bring a bag, but sadly there is always a Kauai Ice bag to snag.

God's rays

This friendly but loose dog had no problem running up the hill to say hello. I didn't have any treats, so he went away.
Near as I can tell, these were 2 ducks or geese. It sealed my opinion when I saw one of them waggle the tail.
The horse had been standing quietly, until the Cattle Egret decided to sit.

Early morning nice clouds

This is the fruit of the Bitter Melon plant.

Niihau and Lehua islands

Cloud rainbow

A pair of pups watching me walk by. Glad they were friendly: I didn't have my walking stick with me.

So that's the haps for this week. I am looking forward to the arrival of my new phone tomorrow...hope I can make it behave!
Thank you for reading.
