Jeff Adams and I had a great day in spite of being turned around at the gate of Volcano National Park…
So much for any plans for photographing plants in the park.
Today I left the hotel for the first time in several days. We went down to the Sack N Grab on Kinoole Street for some groceries.
Tim is recovering–slowly. I see to his needs and search for more photographs.

This is how I spent the afternoon, in bed with Odie and the flu.
While Tim has been playing the shakuhachi, touring Hilo, and adding new posts, I have been exploring, taking pictures, and thinking about adding new posts. Our next door neighbor at Dolphin Bay Hotel remarked just yesterday when I commented on the beautiful weather, “Another day in paradise.” I agree. I have alternated days of looking for potential pictures with days of packing up my gear and actually taking the pictures.
Signs of the Ithaca vibes.

Hilo has a bit of an Ithaca vibe. But it also shows signs of not being Ithaca.
