Yesterday I received bad news in regards to our PCS.
I spent the day inside and stressed out.
So I decided to make a coffee date to force myself out of the house.
To the Coffee Gallery it was!
I picked up Ashley and head down there to enjoy an amazing bowl of pineapple vegetarian chili and a soy chai
After the chili we split amazing chocolate chip cookie dough cheesecake.
See why I love it there?
We head out to one of my favorite beaches to hang our afterwards.
I love Ali’i beach because it is usually pretty empty and it is very close to me.
Since it’s surf season, there have been quite a few people there though.
Ashley and I hung out for a while, and I snapped random photos, including this one of my Shootsac.
This thing is amazing!
The shoulder pad is a must, but it makes my lenses feel as light as air.
I just need to figure out how to keep sand out of it 🙂
There were plenty of surfers out today.
The water looked like a massive oil spill had taken over.
This is just the result of the huge downpour that Hawaii has been experiencing.
It was such a different view than the beautiful blue waves that I am so accustomed to seeing.
I decided to shoot in black and white because the brown water was getting me down.
And Ashley became my model while testing out different ways to achieve sharp photos.
I have tremors and my hand has been cramping a lot lately, so it makes it a bit difficult to hold my camera steady.
Thank you fibromyalgia 🙂
I hope to get on a regular medical routine when I get to VA.
I have the bad habit of skipping out on my doctors appointments because I get so busy.
But 2011 is the year to take charge!
Anyways, here is my photo for the day.
One thing I love about living here is seeing the passion and dedication people have.
It’s also great to see people so in touch with nature.
I am always amazed with surfers and I would love to learn how to at least stand on a board one day.
It really is something that brings people together.
