Spring in SF

After lots ( and lots ) of rain it seems Spring slipped in under the bridge.

... a beautiful day by the bay and a beautiful ballet to boot. Plus, PLUS a "we have to!" purchase at the ballet shop of two SF Ballet pink tops for two little whirling dervishes in Singapore.

The Rain Came and...

..the people left the islands. Actually I dont know if these pictures indicate a particularly unusual day on Maui or not. There was rain, a rather relentless two days of it, but, unlike the rest of the islands on Friday the sun was shining brightly as we left. I do know that the pictures below, indicating the lines both behind and ahead of us, do not really do justice to the congregation gathered together in the name of security.

There are weddings everywhere. At the time of this one, there was another at the other end of the beach about to begin. Two more couples followed the one pictured here.
Most of the weddings I saw were conducted by a Hawaiian officiant bearing white lais and wearing the spiked palm headdress.

The headdress seems to be quite popular.


There is a great walk along the sea. On this day, the precursor to some dandy days of steady rain, everyone - except the dogs - was out to see the waves.

Laughter Yoga

Went to a class this morning called Laughter Yoga.
Pretty amazing experience!
here is a link~

be sure to copy and paste if you cannot open. It is a very interesting concept, the same point of view expressed in this book

only with others. Really fun and my guess is really important too.

Went whale watching yesterday....lots of pictures of where whales just were! It is very exciting to be here at this time, the peak of the whales migration from Alaska to this mating and birthing spot. We were told that at any given moment at this time of year there are 2000 - 3000 whales in these waters. Indeed, it is hard to look out over the horizon for more than about 5 minutes without seeing whale blows.

When there seemed to be no whales in site the boat's naturalist lowered an amphibian mike so we could hear the males singing. Astounding! They were all around us.
Lucky lucky memorable day.
