Here are a few more shots of Hawaii. The attractive woman holding up the palm tree is my wife of 25 years; the sea cliff is one of the southernmost points in the U.S.; and the 444-foot waterfall is Akaka Falls, in a rain forest.

We also did some snorkeling. We saw the pretty Hawaiian state fish, a little colorful thing called a humuhumunukunukuapua'a. It only attacks people when it's protecting eggs (and it just pecks at them, we heard).

I went back to a core karate class last night, it felt great after a bit of a break. Saturday I'm taking up grappling again. We'll see how the reconstructed ACL does....

Gorgeous pictures, I'm sure your trip was a dream!

I'm sooooooo jealous, I'd kick you in the head if I could.

I'm 6-foot-two, and I'm always impressed when people can kick me in the head. There's a pint-sized female black belt in my class who once shocked me with a perfect kick in the head--not hard, she's nicer than you, Hack! ;-)

Best thing of all--she had a busted ACL, and she never got the surgery (she had a baby instead, in short order). She sometimes wishes she got it fixed, but she does wear a brace to class all the time and does just fine.
