And she's off! (finally)

Apologies for the delay in posting - I spent the last half week alternating between running around like crazy and sitting around having a pity party. Neither of which are particularly interesting, especially considering this is supposed to be a travel blog, and there I was, two weeks after the first post, still not traveling.

I did make it to the Chihuly exhibit at the de Young museum. I highly recommend a trip to anyone who is going to be in SF before September 28th. Yeah, it's not challenging art, but it's damn cool. I keep thinking I want to take glass blowing someday, although the thought of scorching my lungs with toxic fumes is a bit daunting.

So now I'm sitting on the Lanai at the Vista Waikaloa resort near Kona, where my mom won time in an auction, and she and two of my sisters and I have congregated for a girls week. Well, an abbreviated one - American Airlines was having some trouble being an airline yesterday. They canceled my first flight, along with numerous others, so I would up arriving at the end of the day instead of the beginning. It's amazing how much reading you can get done in eight hours of sitting in the airport. They made up for it just slightly by taking off directly over SF, which allowed me to get the following photos out the plane window:

The first two photos are of Jess Zenkstrong and the crew at Sean and Courtney's newly combined pad. Shortney are superior hosts, up to and including giving you an extra big martini glass so you can chug their yummy champagne, as Jess is so nicely demonstrating (thanks Vanna!).

I'm off to cook breakfast for the lazy bums who are better adjusted to Hawai'i time. Hopefully I'll have a chance to try out my underwater camera adapter, and will soon be able to start the colorful part of my travels. I miss you all already.
