Susan caught this dramatic shot on our mule ride voyage on the island of Molokai. That's Jan to left in foreground and me just in front of one of our guides. She must have actually stopped her mule to take this picture because I took - like - zillions of shots but none this good. It is not what you would call a really smooth ride. Suffered no aches, bumps or bruises though, so does that mean I'm a natural with the mule?
The entire ride was this dramatic. Yes that's the ocean out there! The scenery is gorgeous, the plant life is diverse and beautiful. The company was delightful - fellow tourists and tour guides alike.
I would not trade one moment of that fantastic trip for anything!
....and I promise more photos to follow. I'm feeling much better - the cold has become almost 'normal' meaning that I sneeze just like anybody else without having a coughing fit... and I'm out and about getting things done... but not gonna push it, I promise!
