One more from Point Reyes that I had lying around. Pretty sure this is the last one from Point Reyes I’ll ever be posting. Unless I, know you, go back there and take more pictures.

August 12, 2013 – Makapuu Point, Oahu Coastline, Hawaii

Oahu Coastline

Still no PC. Don’t buy anything from Acer, people. Everything they make is garbage. I *have* my new PC, but it doesn’t work, and their support is not helpful.

So, back to the archives. Here’s one from Hawaii. This was taken on Oahu, at the very southwest corner. The names are fuzzy, but based on a quick Google Maps search, it looks like this is Makapuu Point, on the Kalanianaole Highway.

July 26, 2011 – Sunset Surfing in Turtle Bay

Sunset Surfing in Oahu

Tuesday, July 26, 2011

So I went backpacking this weekend. And I took a few pictures. I’m hoping to get at least one of those up here at some point this week. Also, I’ve got more pictures from Point Reyes. Maybe you’ll see one of those too. But in the meantime, here’s another shot of some dude surfing at sunset. This was in Turtle Bay, at the northern tip of Oahu, in Hawaii.

Have a great rest of the day, and try to stay cool out there, unless you’re in the southern hemisphere or Seattle, in which case, grab a coat.

July 6, 2011 – Hawaiian Fire Dancer

Hawaiian Fire Dancer

Wednesday, July 6, 2011

Hey look, it’s the same picture that everyone who has ever been to Hawaii has already taken! That’s right folks, I was a tourist just like everyone else while I was there, and I went to a luau at some hotel, and I took long-exposure pictures of the guys doing the fire dancing. I wish I was original, but I so totally am not.

In other news, I decided today to stop posting links to Rate Dave’s Photos. Because it’s dumb, and ugly, and I wouldn’t want anybody to go there anyway. I don’t even have a good reason for why I was putting those links there this whole time. So, I stopped. You probably don’t even know what I’m talking about, which is good, because it’s dumb. Right, good, let’s get on with the rest of our day.

June 8, 2011 – Snorkeling at the Rockhouse

Unlike the last few tropically-themed pictures I’ve posted, this one is actually *not* from my recent Hawaii trip. Instead, this one is from Jamaica. Specifically, Negril. Even more specifically, this was taken from the restaurant at the Rockhouse hotel just outside of Negril. That, my friends (and non-friend readers), is an amazing place. There is a famous 7-mile long white sand beach in the town of Negril itself, but the Rockhouse (and a few other hotels) are a little ways outside of town, on what is known as “the cliffs”. So, there’s no beach per-se there, instead it’s a rocky shoreline, where all of the rooms are about 10-ish feet above the water, and there’s all sorts of little ladders and stuff that you can use to get in to the water. But, there’s some pretty great snorkeling and such literally feet from the door of your room. Like I said, not a bad spot.
