This is the tropical little beach that fronts Heavenly Hibiscus Valley.
It's where you will usually find Ulu's cousin, HuevosNoMoa, hanging ten with his sassy brassy surf chicks.

GOOD THINGS COME TO THOSE WHO WAIT....AND WAIT...


These baby pineapples were planted over two years ago. They were from the tops of previous pineapples I had grown in this same pot. They require very little maintenance, and three plants grew amazingly well in this small, shallow pot. Although I had to be extremely patient, waiting over two years, for these little guys to produce fruits no bigger than the size of a baseball, what they lack in size, they make up for in taste! They are the sweetest, juiciest little pineapples ever. I am not even really a fan of pineapple, but for these, I will continue to ever so patiently, continue to grow, year after (two) year......

GUMBY's DISCO DAZE - 54 Special- Odysea Surfboard Painting


I love my little Gumby 4'6" foamie fun board.
Today I Posca'd the bottom of it. I didn't spend time trying to come up with something spectacular, because I don't think the paint will last very long on a plastic bottomed foamie board. It was just for fun! We very occasionally have "disco day" while out surfing, creating new surf lyrics to old 70's disco songs, and singing them as we fly down the face of the waves.
Bertha may be a HARD ROCK, but she likes DISCO!

This painting was inspired by a week long backcountry backpacking trip that Dean and I took in Grand Teton National Park a few years back. It was the view out of our tent one of the days of our trek.

THE BRY HIKES


This past weekend's hike was difficult for me.
It wasn't the strenuous 5 mile length, or the 2,000+ foot elevation gain, it was the fact that this was the first hike without my little sidekick along with us.
Brighton LOVED to go hiking, and he got to climb many of Oahu's peaks numerous times. He could handle even the most difficult trails we went on. Even after a long trek many miles up a steep mountainside, he still looked as fresh as a daisy.
The hike this past weekend reminded me (not that I needed reminding) just what a Little Superman he really was. As I climbed up, up, up, past sections of crazy slippery gnarled tree root covered ground, or hundreds of steep muddy steps, I was again amazed that he had always been right there alongside us, giving us the "C'MON GUYS HURRY UP!" look.
Only 187 more to go........

Mommy, how come your face is beet red?

We made it, Little Superman!
Although he was not too happy about it, I did always carry him both up and down the really steep stair sections.
To be able to handle as he did, for miles and miles on those little legs, and always so happy to be out there with us, melts my heart.

OK MOM, I guess you can carry me the rest of the way home.
I know it makes you happy.
I LOVE YOU BRIGHTON
