Celebrating Another Candle, 8/22/14

Did I share with you that I go to the gym for 5:30 a.m. classes?  I have been doing this since 2001 however I confess that the last 3 years, I have not been as consistent however my friends have and we continue our friendship. (On a good week, I am there Tues. Wed. and Thurs. - sorry, feeling guilty)

Ruth suggested Cafe Julia.
This YWCA is also known as the Richard Street YWCA.

Margaret, Ruth, me, Dee Dee, Donna (I luv the orchid, rose leis!).
Dessert: drum roll...Bananas Foster...

My first Bananas Foster was ono (delicious)!!! Margaret was laughing as I scraped this goblet clean.
Thanks again Ruth for suggesting Cafe Julia - dinner and dessert was enjoyed by all.
When I got home, I decided to do a selfie (wish I had longer arms) cuz I wanted to show off my leis which were given to me from my co-workers.  I was so happy to get not just one Tahitian Ginger lei, I got two! There are different ways to string ginger flowers - this as I mentioned is Tahitian Ginger.
I embrace my new year!!!

Hilton Hawaiian Village, 8/2/14

Where did the time go? I think the last time I photographed with Milton S. and Derek was at  Foster Botanical Garden, 2/18/14. Oh boy! My fault.

Although, I enjoy coming to Hilton Hawaiian Village, there were less things to photograph. No penguins, flamingoes and few water lilies. The ducks have had a field day with the water lilies.

I wish I could be as focused as the Night Heron.

Now I am looking for things to photograph. LOL
One of my favs - the water wheel.

 I had to look up what kind of turtle this is.  It is an Eastern Spiny Softshell turtle "Trionyx Spiniferus"
