Should Of Had The Window Seat!

 This is an aerial view of a post I did awhile back of the Wailoa River in Hilo (1) & (2 here)
(Singing Bridge below)

An early morning surprise -(first time either of us had flown in a helicopter) a Christmas present from our son)..
 With only a cup of coffee down, this is little of what we saw below -

These are mac nut (macadameian) fields My Grandparent's used to have a tree when they retired in Sierra Madre Ca.  I can remember cracking them with a hammer in our back yard- very tasty! Of course there are a variety of ways to use them from cookies to mac nut crusted fish.
(I haven't had dinner yet)

Crater-reminds me of fingers venting..
I've never seen a tattoo quite like our Pilot had, have you?

The Pacific Ocean- around 8:30 this morning

Below..I've included a bunch of relieved trees- chatting below!
Quite a soft contrast from the flow..
This is why-
The house you see is the last remaining when Kalapana (Royal Garden's subdivision) was
taken by the flow in the beginning of 1990's-
As I understand (Jack Thompson)- owner, has turned his home into a B & B..I guess you'd have quite a hike? Still, the up side would be working up a good appetite! Hmm..
Psalm 19

For the director of music. A psalm of David.
The heavens declare the glory of God;
the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
Day after day they pour forth speech;
night after night they display knowledge.
There is no speech or language
where their voice is not heard.
Might not get another post up in time so hey-

Happy New Year to all!!

I cannot imagine how I'll feel inside a helicopter.

Shaking? closing my eyes and holding the side bar tight the whole journey?


Happy New Year.
