We celebrated our 20th anniversary with a couple of lunch dates. Same with hubs birthday.
Oh. I read all four books in the Twilight series. Days lounging around in PJ's with Bella, Edward, and Jacob.
My friend P called and asked if I had anything fun planned and I did not and she asked if I did one thing what would I like it to be and I told her hiking.
Be careful what you ask for.
I've been all sassy pants with my speed walking and beach walking. P took me a couple of miles UPHILL to the top of Kuliou'ou Ridge. I was a bit pathetic in the amount of times I had to slow or stop and catch my breath. Casual chatting was out about 20 minutes into the hike. My digital camera stopped working at the beginning of the break so I asked P to bring hers. After stopping her three times to take a photo she let me carry it. Which gave me a good excuse to stop some more.

I loved this tree. I thought it looked like something that could come to life, shake my hand for making it this far, and toodle on behind me if it felt so inclined.
The bushes and ferns were incredibly beautiful. Here we are starting to get a glimpse towards Hawaii Kai.
Hawaii Kai and Kokohead Crater in the background.
These berries were all over the place.
Yeah, there were several places like this. This is one of the last hills before the top. On the way down I slipped once and fell on my ass. P was surprised to see that after that I chose to sit on my ass and slide down. It was actually more fun that way.
Amazing, isn't it? 1,929 feet above sea level.
Seriously. I want to go again. It might take me longer than most (I was not so thrilled with the two twenty-someting young ladies who blazed past us on a steep hill, talking nonstop...nor the woman with her four children who also passed me up), BUT I MADE IT!!
Don't expect Friday Fotos like this too often. I have to recup you know.
