I forgot to tell you . . .

I forgot to tell you . . .

I sent the letter to Dr. plastic surgeon. I sent copies to my oncologist, the general surgeon, and to the plastic surgeon's immediate supervisor.

We took a scenic drive up Kamehameha Highway today, to Haleiwa. I wanted to try paddle boarding or kayaking, but we decided to go to Waimea Valley instead, and Waimea Falls. We saw maybe 1/3 of the birds in the valley, interesting plants, and Eddie swam in the pool at the base of the falls.

We had dinner in Haleiwa and walked around a bit. We were all bushed so we didn't do much walking by then. I have more blisters on my feet (thanks to Abraxane, I am prone to them) because I walked barefoot on the beach yesterday morning. Eddie said his hip hurts when he walks too long.

The scenery along this drive was beautiful. Thanks to Scotty for driving.

Eddie woke up early again today, so got up to see the sunrise. This time I walked north on Kailua Beach, all the way to the end. I saw several fishermen. I think I saw a turtle. It was sunny blue skies all around. Gorgeous.

Then, while Eddie played for about 45 min in the water, I read a book in a chair. He went back in after drying off some. I finished my book. So, I walked about an hour this morning. Read a book on the beach for an hour and a half. Then we drive an hour and a half to Waimea Valley, walked a mile and a half round trip to the Falls. And, then back home.

No wonder I'm tired. But it's a good tired. A tired from lots of physical activity and sun.

Tomorrow we're going to the Marketplace at Aloha Stadium, then maybe snorkeling at Hanauma Bay (well, the boys will snorkel), then to see the Halona blow hole. Then, more beach time. Relaxing.

It's a good thing.

Ahhh, I miss Hawai'i, but you make me feel like I'm there all over again. If you get a chance to go to Lulu's in Waikiki, I highly recommend it. The food is good, reasonably priced, and it's right on the beach. Of course, in Oahu, pretty much everything is right on the beach. :)

Sounds like a great vacation.

I'm so glad you wrote the doc and copied to others.

Sounds wonderful, Dee. That's the type of holiday that I want. Just relax, read, sight-see. Ah ... bliss.
