We took a quick ride over to Kailua Beach to see the full moon tonight. Ben LOVES the moon and always points to it saying “bbbbooon!” (Make your lips go sort-of “bbrrrr” when you say it, like you’re cold.) Tried to take a video of him saying it over and over again, pointing the whole time, but there was no light for video. This is a long-exposure shot taken with camera resting on sand. I enjoyed talking to our friends Tres and Jenni in Italy (Sicily) this morning – they are 12 hours ahead. Sam and I got to see them via Skype! Very exciting. Tres is in the Navy and travels around helping to hunt pirates. (Dave says it’s ok to mention this because everyone knows the Navy is hunting pirates.) Dave also thinks it’s pretty funny that I got to talk to them while he was napping late this morning because his sleep was vexed by the Stennis last night (he was up from midnight to 3:30am taking calls). Tres and Dave were on the Stennis together. We’re looking forward to seeing them soon…you can see what they’re up to at www.tresandjj.com. Jenni is a sweetheart who loves to do triathlons and bike all over Italy in search of a good cuppa coffee. Would love to ride with her!!! We’ve known them since Coronado days and have roped them into more than a few Thanksgiving adventures 🙂 They are so much fun and always game!!!
