Where in the world are Dan and Angela now??

We are back in the United States!

Ok, the reason you haven't seen us is because we traveled to the closest US state to Japan. Yup, we are in Hawaii for the first time in our lives. We are staying in a cottage near the ocean on the island of Kaua'i. It is very nice here. We have seen a few whales off in the distance. Unfortunately we are unable to go out on a boat to get a closer look. Well, Dan could go, but the water is very choppy right now and they don't let pregnant women go on the boats.

Dad and Lee are also here. Lee has a work thing. They are staying at the Poipu Hyatt resort. We sat around yesterday and ordered expensive smoothies from the Hyatt staff. I also learned a valuable lesson about sitting around in the shade at so southernly a latitude. Yes, I can still burn, even in the shade.

We have visited the north shore of Kaua'i, the canyon over on the west side, and even one of the post offices. It is very nice and scenic here. Here is a picture of a lighthouse on the north side.


Dan is working hard at relaxing. What about his office? What will they do without him? Don't worry, he left a can of "Black Boss" coffee (since his name means black boss) with a postit picture of himself on his desk. It is replacing him this week.

Is the swimsuit ok? Are the spices ok?

The swimsuit is great. It helped me to get sunburned a little. When I wear it and look in the mirror, it makes me laugh. I would post the picture here, but I don't think the world is ready for pictures of me in a swimsuit.

The spices are good too. We wish for garlic powder, but we can find fresh garlic at the grocery store in Japan.

Hmmmm... the Black Boss picture looks remarkably like a halloween pumpkin that I remember...

And I *have* noticed that i never see Dan and the pumpkin in the same room at the same time...
