Zoo, 7/26/17

Next Wednesday, 8/2/17, I will be back at work. Derek was thoughtful and suggested we enjoy a photo outing as he has this week off. We concluded that Summer is not a good time to go to the zoo - the animals are just as exhausted from the heat as we are. My last photo says it all.

This lemur is helping himself to the water.

Mid morning delight.

Yup, this is the last photo, the spider monkeys were inactive. The guy facing the back fence was scratching his side.

A little girl spotted the tiger, which was against the fence hiding and resting in the shads - consequently no photo.

My orangutans were unhappy. I think it was Violet in the large area and Rusty was in another cage. They were side by side in separate cages - it broke my heart. Rusty had his back to us.

Our group split up - hungry ones: Curtis, Dean and I went across the street to Teddy's Bigger Burger; Milton and Derek went to the Aquarium. Milton, Derek and I went to Kim Chee 2 - I enjoyed laughing with them as they enjoyed their delicious lunch.

Lanikai Sunrise and Hoomaluhia, 7/9/17

Here we (Derek, Milton S., Bob, Walter, Dewey and me) are - yes 5:43 a.m. We knew the sun was going to rise from the left of the islands. Yikes, low clouds near the horizon. 

I definitely have to learn how to make photos of the sun without it being blown out.

By 6:45, we were ready for breakfast. Off to Big City Diner at Windward Mall, then to Derek's.

Bob and Walter called it a day.
The rest of us went to Hoomaluhia Botanical Garden.

Highlight: Derek and I were chatting when I saw two young boars zipping by.  I managed to get the smaller one.

After spending 2 hours, we were ready to leave. Luckily although it was very hot it was not humid.
Later it is fun to see each other's photos and to see that we were scattered at Lanikai Beach.
