Keokea

The ocean has been "Victory at Sea" conditions for over a week now. As a result, stand-up paddling and surfing are quickly becoming a distant memory.
Welcome to spring time in Hawaii....Home to lots of wind and flat spells. Ewe.
 By the end of May, surfers are really antsy in the islands. You can always tell the surf conditions just by the tone of the "discussion" board on our local online surf report. It's pretty entertaining. Some people are really bored I tell you. 
( click here and scroll to the bottom of the page for board... )
Good thing June is just around the corner. Everyone is looking forward to the energy that should arriving soon from wintertime in the southern hemisphere...
Anyway,
Carlos and I gave up on surf and decided to head Upcountry to see the Jacarandas in bloom. We headed to Keokea, a sleepy little outpost on the steep slopes of our big sleepy volcano. It was beautiful up there today. As always...
