Getting My Vitamin D

I've been in Hawaii this past week to reunite with high school classmates and to visit relatives.

A few days ago we drove around Oahu and marveled at all the changes. I got lost frequently. iPhone GPS and Google Maps were not wholly reliable, or maybe I just don't know how to use them properly. One area that hasn't changed much is the beach along the far North Shore where the road ends, away from crowded Haleiwa. White sand, fierce sun, and lapping waves. Maui's over-rated. Oahu no ka oi!

Gotta get me one of those new iPhones. 2MP resolution doesn't cut it.

We went to Maui for a funeral back in January and got SO terribly lost--Google Maps seems to think streets are named things completely different from what's on the signs.

By the way, I found out that the UH bookstore is closed today and tomorrow for Kamehameha Day, so if you haven't gotten a chance to pick up your merchandise, it won't be open again till Monday at 8.

Thanks, Rachel. The University of Hawaii satellite clothing store, Rainbowtique (, at Ward Centre is open today. Persistent shoppers always find a way.
