August - Getting settled in. Finally.

OK - the last month has been madness. But on 31 July we finally moved into our place in Kailua. We now have two cars, two mobile phones, furniture and finally all our stuff from Australia. We've managed to get out a few times, but not much exploring yet. One trip up to the North Shore and one evening on a cruise out along the Waianae (west coast) - other than that it's been work, getting our lives organised... and swimming in the pool!

Due to the vagaries of blogspot, the photos below have come out in more or less random order. Enjoy!

Looking back through the house past our loungeroom to our front door.

Bedroom! And yes, it's at a wierd angle!

Rochelle on a sunset tour up the Waianae coast.

More sunset stuff.

The Waianae mountains along the west coast of Oahu (and some dude)

Kailua Beach - a few minutes walk from our house - at early morning swim time.

This photo is just to prove that Rochelle is still pregnant (although the nextdoor neighbour thinks she's due in March, not October)

Our house - front view!!

And our kinda matching cars... awww. Rochelle has the mummy car.

Pool Photo 1. Taken from the cabana... Honestly.

Rochelle enjoying shave ice on the beach at Haleiwa on the north shore. Nice spot.

Great big fields of nothing on the highway up to the north shore - nice to see some 'country' rather than all the urban space on this island. The mountains in the background are the ones along the west coast that we could see from the cruise...

Coastline along the SE corner of Hawaii - nice views out to the other islands.

Pool Photo 2.

And that's all for the moment... Kieran's working hard - starting early and finishing late. Rochelle's working from home for the moment, which means lunchtime swims and a better office here than back in Canberra (aircon, lotsa desk space, private kitchen... pool out the back - are you reading this David and Peter?)

So life's going to be pretty domestic for the next little while - but it's not a bad spot to do it...

At the copa, copa cabannnaaaaaa..... Whoo! Bring on the par-tay.

So where is the picture of the guest suite? Sooooo want to come visit right now, but alas.

Photos are reminding me of my previous tropical life in Darwin. Missing the warmth, although I can feel spring coming just a few weeks away!

Enjoy domesticity...there is nothing wrong with that! :`)

love sair
