Well, it has been awhile since I have posted, but it is because I have been having so much fun! Grandpa got back last week and then the next day Al and Bev, some of Janice’s family, got here. I have been staying with my Uncle Richmond which has been very nice. Work has been going well, the kids are great! Today they asked me if I was blonde, uh, nope! I still have not heard back from the hospital, where I applied for a CNA (certified nursing assistant) job, waiting anxiously!
In the past week we have gone to Glass Beach, Menehune Fish Ponds, Turtle Cove, Wailua Beach (to watch the sunrise) and many more places.

Yesterday Bev and I got up super early to go watch the sunrise at Wailua Beach, of course we stopped at Starbucks on the way! The sunrise was spectacular, the edge of the clouds were a beautiful soft pink. There were a lot of rocks and a’a on the beach we were at; the waves were crashing onto them and exploding. It was gorgeous! The picture below is probably one of my favorite pictures I have taken since I have been here. I have more like it also-- it looks like shattered glass, and I love the sunlight coming through it.
Last night Charlotte and Marie came over for dinner and pool. For dessert we had kulolo, a Hawaiian dessert made with taro, cane sugar and coconut oil--very ono! Then we played pool. We have a game that we play where you each have two balls, (i.e. I had 11&12) and the point of the game is to have your ball the last one on the table. Well, Grandpopper won one game, Janice won one, Marie won one and I won three! It was a lot of fun! Also saw a baby cane spider while we were playing pool a couple of nights ago!
I am also trying to think of a name for my photography. Right now it is just Kai’s Photography, but I would like something different, so if you have any suggestions please let me know!
Well, I hope you all are doing well, and have had a wonderful January. Malama Pono
