I must be in Florida!

Run Kainoa run! Being at my family's home is nothing like being on the Big Island! Today we swam in the Gulf Of Mexico, where my surfing days started. It was breath taking to walk on HUGE white sandy beaches, watch seagulls dance along the ocean's edge, and it was amazing to swim above a sandy bottom covered in sand dollars! I would be a VERY rich woman if sand dollars were spendable!

Kainoa is loving to run through grandma's grassy back yard, play with his cousin, and dig in the dirt. NOTHING like the lava covored jungle he plays in back home. I am enjoying the family moments & seeing my sisters again! Of course helping my cousin Aubrey skip school was a high light too! She goes to my old high school and I had some GREAT flash backs of cutting class there too!

But one little thing might need some changing... THIS MUSIC! I won't say I hate it (truthfully I like a lot of it) but waking up to country music and hearing it all day has me square dancing and considering cowboy boots for running!

Glad you are having fun in Florida Bree. My sister lives in St. Pete. Good luck in the race.

Since I'm a sucker for quotes, here's one on beating the old Bree: “Be not the slave of your own past. Plunge into the sublime seas, dive deep and swim far, so you shall come back with self-respect, with new power, with an advanced experience that shall explain and overlook the old.”
