Hawaii: Mountain Views, Murphy Beds, and More!

The good news about doing school online is that you can access it from anywhere in the world--anywhere! Even Hawaii!

The bad news about doing school online is that you can access it from anywhere in the world, even Hawaii.

I'm in Hawaii right now, for the very first time ever. Pretty exciting, let me tell you. It was all I could do to keep from flinging myself straight into the ocean as we walked along the beach yesterday. We were just scoping out the area around our lodgings, however, not swimming, and I was fully clothed so I restrained myself (though I did put my feet in and it was PERFECT and I really wanted to jump in anyway, fully clothed or not).

Here is the view from our window:

We ate lunch at the Crêpe House, which was DELICIOUS. I want to go back and try some other kinds:

Anyone have any idea what that emblem in the middle is supposed to be? It does not look like either a crêpe or a house, nor does it look like France... could it be something Hawaiian? Could it be one of those dancing mushrooms from Fantasia, eating a crêpe? Who knows...

And this is my bed!

I've always wanted to sleep in a murphy bed--haven't you? There are other pillows here, but I prefer to sleep with my fancy-schmancy travel pillow that is the same kind of pillow as the one I use at home, just smaller. I think that's better than those cheap thick poly-fill ones that are just one big lump of stuffing.

Now let's see: homework versus Hawaii. Term projects versus tanning (or in my case, burning). Studying versus swimming. Sigh. This is going to be a tiring week. Not that I'm complaining--I'm in Hawaii!--I'll just have a hard time disciplining myself each day to do something productive for school.

I'm so jalous! not about Hawaii--about the Murphy bed! I've always wanted to sleep in one of those!

That's awesome! Do you think the Crepe house thing is a chick with a big hat on?
