    I arrived in Hawaii yesterday. I'm enjoying it very much, especially since I just checked the weather back home, and it's 28 degrees there :D Well, my laptop battery is about to croak, so without further ado, here's a few pictures.

    I checked the weather back home this morning, and it was 16, with a wind chill of 4 degrees :eek: . No problem with that here :D . I went on a 40 minute glider flight today. We got towed up to 5,000 feet, then slowly worked our way back down. I took about 75 pictures during the flight, and bought a videotape of the flight. Here's a picture from the flight:

    Well, I returned home Christmas Eve, and yesterday I had the joy of a foot of snow here in Newport News. Oh, joy! Well, here's a few more pictures. These are from the glider flight:

    And here's a couple from the Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park. That's steam rising from the ground in the first picture.

    I envy me, too! I wasn't expecting to have to deal with a foot of snowfall shortly after my return from Hawaii. Here's what outside my door looked like Sunday morning (this was before it got really heavy):

    Waikiki Beach and the Honolulu area are pretty congested, but once you get out of those areas it's much more laid back. The area where the airfield is that I went gliding at is actually somewhat desolate.

    Due to budget and time constraints, I decided to go to one other island, and the Big Island got my vote, because I wanted to go to the Volcano park. Knowing what I know now, I would have spent more time on the Big Island because I found it to be quite fascinating.

    Sorry, can't really help you there. I didn't relish the idea of having my new Digital Rebel shoved up my ass by a jealous boyfriend/husband for taking pictures of the "scenery". :D :eek:
