Patty’s birthday was last Tuesday, and over the weekend, Jeff threw a fantastic party for her.
I was lucky enough to get invited to come to Maui and stay with Jeff and Patty Aubery at a property they built called the Jewel of Kahana. It’s a huge house on a half acre oceanfront lot, outfitted with the latest technology, and absolutely stunning. Two floors with lower walls that retract completely, leaving the entire house open.
They warned us on the news over the weekend. People ignored it as usual. They warned us again on Monday. So I took the Harley out for a ride on a nice fall day. They warned us again on Tuesday, but it was cloudy and windy, with lots of fall leaves in the air, so I left the bike in the garage and went out in the truck instead.
We held our 2nd annual Fourth of July block party this year, and it was another successful, if not slightly more sane party. We wrapped it up at 1:30am this year instead of 3am, and it only took an hour to clean up the streets the next morning. And, just to be clear, I have no recollection of any any fireworks at our party… 🙂 I have no idea where all that stuff we had to sweep up came from…
We had a cold front come through town today, and the clouds lined up nicely for a spectacular sunset.It was windy enough that I had to anchor the tripod by hanging the backpack on it, and it got pretty chilly very quickly, but all in all, it was worth it as usual!
