Foster Garden with Kamehameha Lions Club board members, 7/25/20

The last time I was at Foster Gardens, I had an epiphany. This would be great place to have an outing - the botanical garden is so pretty and I could give tips on photography. Nine of us were able to make it. The other 2 that are missing in this photo -looks like Al came after and Sheila was taking the photo. Thank you Sheila for sharing your photos.

I had a short meeting in this gazebo and this was our meeting place afterwards. 

We had a blast at Assaggios. Al did not join us, he went home make sure his place was taken care of due to the impending Hurricane Douglas.

These are my photos...

We are not sure what this object is - each of this special Palm has one - some are lying down, this was looks like it is a support. Those Palms also has a fence around them.

These next two intrigued me. I have never seen this and I did not take a photo of which tree it is from.


The crown flower attracts the butterflies. I feel accomplished, if I catch them flying.

At the gazebo, this gecko I think was eavesdropping on our conversation.

I got compliments for organizing this and that it was enjoyable. We really had a blast at lunch.

Hamakua Marsh, 7/21/20

These ducks and some to the left of us were not giving us any action. Derek, Curtis, Gary and myself had to be patient. Although Derek and Curtis claimed, they were more active before we showed up at 7:15 am.

Hey hey, I can see you laughing behind your face mask, Derek. I really like your face mask!

I felt I understood the red/green dot tracker better today, however, I did not have a fast shutter speed set up. Definitely need more practice. But the main thing is, we have fun joking around and groaning when we miss our shots. Thank you Gary, for editing some of my photos that I thought were junk.

Retirement 5/26/20, East Side 7/12/20


This was the day, the 5th graders did a drive by to pick up their belongings. Since the teachers and staff were going to be there, my fellow Educational Assistants planned this farewell for me after the 5th graders left. I am truly blessed!!!

Yup, there is a supply of toilet paper. This year has become a year where toilet paper, hand sanitizer, and facemarks are critical. 

Enjoy the video

Sorry about sharing this side of the bird, lol. I think it saw me and thought I need to fly away.
