Saffie Loves Snow!

At 0:11 she makes a "Snow Prawn"!

Saturday, December 1, 2007

Apparently Lawrence Welk was a whole lot hipper than we knew....

Our State Capitol

Saffie sits in awe of the capital dome.

Don't bother counting. There are 42 steps representing the 42 states in the union at the time of our statehood.
They really should add the other 8.

Our Namesake.

Thanks for visiting! Come again soon!
On the way out of Olympia....

Need a Hand?

Well I do.

While out for an evening poop walk, Saffie's leash slipped between my third and fourth fingers as she darted for a jogger.

It really looked worse than this. Regrettably we didn't take the time to work out some more dramatic camera angles before heading to urgent care......

Needless to say, hilarity ensued. Even the zany crew at Group Health got in on the fun!

A couple of X-rays. Click to enlarge!

Fingers #4 and #5 are broken. #4 is the worst. The part of the finger above the break was dislodged and had to be pulled back into alignment. Yee Ha!

Luckily, despite the fracture, #5 stayed where it belongs.

It looks and sounds awful but thankfully it wasn't really all that painful.

Becoming a "lefty", however, has been an exciting challenge.

Dog Fun

We were on our way to "Woofstock" when the Volunteer Park Dahlias irresistibly called out to Saffie.

One day, the water faucet at the Green Lake off-leash park broke.........

...and the animals were pleased.

Hawaii 2007

A few pics from our August escape to Oahu and Maui.

Detroit Gals

A couple of fun-lovin' ladies that we met at Hula's.

They were drinking.

Waimanalo Beach.

Just a few miles from Honolulu but a world away. Quiet, uncrowded, stunning unspoiled beauty. It was our first beach stop on both (and probably future) trips to the Islands.

Sky to Shore at Waimanalo



Calm seas in the summer. Surfing capital in the winter when the waves soar.
We snorkled with Green Sea Turtles, schools of psychedelic fish, and even spotted an Octopus.

Maui Pics

We hardly took the camera out on Oahu. Here are some Maui highlights.

The Road to Hana.

42 miles, 54 bridges, 600 hairpin turns.

One of the many waterfalls that the road to Hana is known for.

Keanae Peninsula lava boulders

Oh,.....another waterfall?

Taro fields
Soaking up the Haleakala rain water. Mmmmmmm Poi.

Wailua Falls
South of Hana. The most scenic waterfall that we found on Maui.

Real live bananas!

Real live pig!

The dark object in the lower center of the picture is a wild pig. You can just make out one of its pointy pig ears. We would have taken a better shot but we kind of left quickly.

Back to the dry side of the island.........

"Big Beach"

You have to cross Big Beach to get to the trail that leads to............

"Little Beach!"

Where we went daily for sun, swimming and great snorkeling.

The view of Molokini Crater from our usual spot at Little Beach.

Fins make great drink holders.
