“Happiness is not something you postpone for the future; it is something you design for the present.”  Jim Rohn

We’re down to our last week on the Island.  It’s amazing to think that we’ve been here two and a half weeks already!  How wonderful it has been to not have an agenda when we get up in the morning.  We have our list of things we wanted to do this trip, and we’ve been ticking them off slowly but surely.  There have been days we’ve been on the go from sunrise till way past sunset.  Other days, we’re just out and about leisurely exploring and discovering and experiencing, as much as we can, what the Island has to offer.  A few times we’ve just stayed “in”, lounging around the pool, soaking in the hot tub, taking naps.  

We’ve been coming here every year since 2005.  Every year we seem to stay a little bit longer.  This year it seemed to take us a good two weeks to really relax and get in to the kicked back attitude of the Islands.  We are working while we’re here as well . . . so it’s not all play and no work.  But how can we complain – telecommuting from a place like this??  Having a good team back home is really enabling us to take this time for ourselves.  Being able to spend this time away together is something many people only dream about doing.  

We’ve turned our dream in to a reality.

This is the view from our Villa. Can you find us in the photo?)

Where were you?  What were  you doing?  

Considering that this phenomenon will not happen again within our lifetime, I decided it had to be documented in my 365 Project.  It was interesting to set this up with other people watching with curiosity.  In fact, there is a fellow just off to the right in the hot tub smiling at us while the camera snapped away on Self Timer mode.  This will be a great memory to pass on to our Grandkids and Great Grandkids so that they can see their Ya Ya and Papa G living life, not letting life just pass by.  I want my future generations to be motivated and excited about exploring the world and living life to the fullest for as long as is possible.  We live in a very mobile world where it is easier and easier to travel the world over and experience life on a level that my parents never did.  And I never did either until recently – within the last ten years.  And I’m now hooked!  

And I’m doing it with my Best Friend!

“There is no abstract art.  You must always start with something.  Afterward you can remove all traces of reality.”  Pablo Picasso

We bought a GoProHero 2 just before we came to Hawaii, thinking that it would be a great toy to have in the water when we are snorkeling.   We took it out of the box to pack it for the trip, but otherwise knew nothing about using it.  There actually is quite a process to go through preparing to use it the first time . . . which involves connecting to the Internet and updating it’s software and setting up the wi-fi back pack on it so we can use the iPad or iPhone to control it . . . which of course involved finding the app and downloading it and figuring out how to make it work with the camera . . . all in all quite the process but so cool that we can take pics and video with it thru the iPhone/iPad.  Technology is getting so insane . . .

After all that we were ready for a soak in the hot tub!  By then it was 8pm-ish so we took the little guy with us just to see what we came up with.  I put the camera under water and aimed it at us. This shot is the result.  Kinda cool eh?  Of course it’s no where near the amazing shots I’ve been seeing people post on-line . . . but kinda cool none-the-less.
