P and I got up early this morning, grabbed the dogs and headed over the Pali to Kailua, for a walk on the beach. In spite of the heavy cloud cover on the Pali, it was brilliantly sunny in K-town, and the beach was impossibly nice, warm blue water and very few people at 7am.
Since our torrential rains, sewage spills and flooding of March, I hadn't really been to the beach, fearing bacteria, fish kills, and generally cool water, for Oahu. So it was spectacularly nice this morning, and reminded me that the beach and I have a lot of catching up to do. Dogs played enthusiastically, and Cricket was particularly joyous, having gotten his first real glimpse of the ocean. He swam, splashed around in the surf, and drank enough salt water to cause a mighty purge from both ends, mercifully taking place BEFORE we put him back in the car to bring him home. He's sleeping it off in his crate at the moment.
Today is all about trying to get done the things I didn't do yesterday, mostly due to email, web surfing and goofing around. The heat was also a factor, but today is also cooler, with a stiff breeze blowing, so hopefully, my enthusiasm for housecleaning will stay strong.
