The stark beauty of the rugged landscape of a lava field in Hawaii Volcano National Park.

It's my birthday weekend!

Just a short post.  
My birthday was this past friday on the 12th.  Lately, I've been dreaming of going to the beach to swim.  That is exactly what I did for my birthday.  My brother and I went to one of our favorite beaches located in Lai'e, O'ahu called Baby Ponders Beach or the old CYO camp beach.  It was a nice sunny day.  A few birds circled me while I was swimming and a school of baby fish visited me twice.  All in all, I had a great day at the beach.

Dreaming of swimming in the ocean.  Evidenced by my doodling.

Finally got my wish on my birthday

Baby Ponders aka CYO beach in Lai'e, O'ahu

A good spot to park the party

Ah!  my spot of paradise

Neptune's garden at my feet

weird decapitated tree!  Neptune's seat, perhaps?

view towards North Shore

Sandman's poop!

Daddy Sandman?

Pohuehue (Hawaiian morning glory)

Pohuehue field

3 little birds that kept flying around me while I was swimming

Tide came in during the late afternoon hours.  Time to pack up the party!

I think that I will make this an annual event.  Maybe a few more party goers.  Or maybe a different beach.  Maybe you can join me next year!  That'll be a blast.

Love and Aloha,
