Looking For Feathers, Finding Goose Crap

It’s a lot harder to find bird feathers than one would expect. I figured if I headed to the golf course where I know a bunch of geese were staying for the winter, I would have no problem finding a bunch of feathers (an artist friend had asked for some for a project she is doing and I said I thought I could find some). As I headed off on my futile venture, I first came to a large oak … Continue reading

Almaden Quicksilver Park Hike

This past month I feel like I did when I first started blogging and building websites. At that time I had a full time job and then I would come home and spend another 6 – 8 hours working on the blogs and websites. I was basically working two full time jobs. Although the days were long, it was also a lot of fun because I really enjoyed what I was doing (I had to be since I was spending … Continue reading

Kauai Water Spout

We saw signs for a water spout called Spouting Horn a couple of miles from the place where we were staying and decided that it would be a good walk for one of the days were were there. The walk scenery varied along the way, but some portions were beautiful: When the path met the ocean, it was a shoreline scene that combined of lave and sand. The water spout was a hole in the lava shoreline that shot out … Continue reading

Kauai Evening Stroll

These photos were taken the first night we arrived in Kauai. When we took our evening walk, we ran into a sea lion resting on the beach: As can be seen, I was still feeling the effects of the plane ride over: But the sunset didn’t disappoint…

Kauai Sunset

After a long day of hiking and (unfortunately) working on the computer, you might think that a relaxing evening inside would be the plan. You would be thinking this until you looked out the window and realized that you would miss sunsets like this each evening if you didn’t take walks along the beach… Let’s hear it for exhausting days.

Hiking Trail Slasher

Dad and I decided to head to Waimea Canyon for one afternoon to do some hiking. The Waimea Canyon drive is beautiful and is well worth the drive even if you don’t decide to do any hiking. We drove to just before the end of the canyon road to the Kalalau Lookout down the Kalalau Valley all the way down to the beach. Quite spectacular: We then hopped into the car again and made out way to the very end … Continue reading

Kauai Snorkeling and Boat Ride

One of the best aspects of being your own boss in combination with being a digital nomad is that if the day is perfect, you can take advantage of it. That is exactly what I did with a boat tour to see the Napali coast of Kauai and snorkeling. As we headed to the Napali coast, a few friends decided to tag along for the ride: When we reached the Napali coast line, it was absolutely beautiful: We then went … Continue reading

Hoopii Waterfall Hike

I took a break from work this morning and decided to take a hike to the Ho’opi’i waterfalls in Kauai, but it wasn’t as easy as I thought it would be. This is especially true when the information in the guidebook of where the trail head begins is inaccurate. Luckily a local homeowner steered us in the correct direction so we could even begin the hike. (if anyone reading this is going to take this hike, look for the yellow … Continue reading

Morning Walk In Kauai

We decided to take a morning walk, and it seems that rainbows like to follow me on my travels: While there were rainbows, the rain missed us and we had a beautiful morning walk by the beach. If you have to work, this is certainly the way to do it…
