I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas with your families! I know I did, thanks to skype. Christmas Eve I had dinner with some family over here then went back to the condo and joined my dad’s family Christmas Eve festivities via skype, for over 2 hours! It was a good thing I did because no one could keep track of what number we were on except me. You see, we do a gift exchange and draw numbers then open gifts in order but sometimes it gets confusing so I kept track of where we were :). Then Christmas morning I opened my gifts from Santa Keith, again via skype, with my parents, brother, grandparents and uncle. That evening I got to skype with my mom’s family. My parents got my grandparents a web cam so they can skype with me! Overall it was a great Christmas, even though I wasn’t able to be there in person I still felt like I was there-minus the fact that I couldn’t have all the yummy food.
This morning I headed to the beach at 6:30am to watch the sunrise, and it was gorgeous!
As I was sitting there on some drift wood I noticed little sand crabs all over the beach, they were pretty cute! I also found a Portuguese man-of-war jellyfish sitting on the beach, I’m not sure if it was alive or not but I know that their sting can hurt very badly, in rare cases can cause death-so I will stear clear of them.
Side Note: Uncle Keith called me today and said he saw a bumper sticker that read: “Beware of invisible cows, Mauna Kea Observatory Big Island of Hawaii.” Hmmm…interesting! So I looked it up and apparently dark-colored cows like to roam around at night or when it is foggy and can’t be seen. So if you ever go there, beware of invisible cows!
