From taking Ice Skating Lessons at the Ice Sports Forum in order to eventually take their Learn Hockey class, we enjoy a game of H-O-R-S-E and/or “Around the World” to keep us active. Luckily, we have the Mike E Sansone Community Park nearby.
Weather looming, a nice breeze and the sounds of thunder in the distance but that didn’t stop us from continuing to fish. Bill’s nephew Andy is quite the fisherman so he gave us some tips and had himself the right lures for the type of fish found here.
The last time I went to a Erasure concert on Dec. 4, 1992 – senior year of high school, during their “Phantasmagorical Tour” at Jones Hall, in Houston, Tx. I was visiting my sister at Texas A&M where a bunch of friends had already purchased tickets. We all caravanned on this road trip adventure. For those of us who didn’t have tickets, we purchased ours from scalpers. Such a spontaneous journey and what a setlist they had back then. But Erasure can never fail to entertain.
Moving from Oahu to the Tampa area, we looked forward to watching some professional sports. This year was an exciting time for NHL with the Tampa Bay Lightnings had an exciting Stanley Cup season but got beat by the Washington Capitals who went on to win the Stanley. We learned from the Ice Sports Forum we could both join a Learn Hockey class but had to pass certain ice skating skills first. I already know how to ice skate so Bill had to sign up for a class. Will be posting his progress here.
The last time I went to a Maroon 5 concert was when I was still living in San Diego, CA. Adam Levine and his band played at the Del Mar Fairgrounds as their Songs About Jane album was still on the rise in the Billboard charts. By the end of 2004, the album was Ranked 15 on Billboard 200.
Bill found two survival items while cleaning out his office: #1: Magnesium Flint keychain and #2: P38 (emergency can opener). Then, a lightbulb went off in his head. He remember how we experienced an Epic Fail in making fire while on safari in South Africa. It was as good a time as any to learn for future nature and wildlife adventures. See how he did with alittle imagination.
Having a cousin who grew up in Oahu but currently lives in Washington, he showed us one of his favorite places to snorkel in West Oahu. Jumping aboard our 20-foot motorized Mako 204cc, we head out exploring for spinner dolphins and humpback whales to allow the sun comes up and warm us all up. We arrived where the local power plant was visible about 100 yards from the beach area. But what lies beneath… underneath the water are two giant cooling pipes that pump warm water out. The flowing water is more than strong enough send you doing underwater cartwheels but I called it the “Underwater Pipe Elevator.” Enjoy the video.
