Saturday Snapshot for May 7

I'm starting my return to book blogging with Saturday Snapshot. This is a weekly event hosted by Alyce from At Home With Books. I took this photo several weeks ago on Easter Sunday. When I posted it on Facebook, a friend said it looked like the head of a giant shark coming out of the water.

The views are spectacular as you walk along the ancient Makawehi Lithified Cliffs to Mahaulapu Beach. We live about 15 minutes from the trailhead which begins at Shipwreck Beach on Kauai.

Finally, I want to thank everyone who didn't delete me during my blogging hiatus. It's just been a difficult time but things are going better. Our Auntie passed away at the end of February. She lived with us on Hospice for most of last year before going to long term care. After her death we felt out of balance and put all our energy into work. Now that life is returning to normal, my reading is picking up again. Reviews are coming!


  1. What good relatives you were, taking care of your auntie. I'm sorry to hear of your loss.

    Your photo is beautiful! It looks like a fabulous area to live in (although I'm sure most of Hawaii would fall into that category).

  2. So glad to have you back! I am sorry to hear about your Auntie, but glad that you are getting back into life. Beautiful photo

  3. So sorry to hear about your Aunt. May she rest in peace. Great to have you back!

  4. Nice to have you back. Please accept my condolences for your loss. Sending healing thoughts and hugs your way.

    Love the shark-face photo. It must be splendid to live in such a beautiful place.

  5. Beautiful photo!
    My condolences on the passing of your Auntie but how wonderful that you could help take care of her.

  6. I'm sorry to hear about your Auntie.

    And the sharks' head was the first thing I saw,'s the hole that looks like an eye that did it for me.

  7. Condolences on your Aunt's passing away. And welcome back.

  8. Sorry to hear of the passing of your Auntie. I am glad that you got to spend time with her while you could.

    It does look like a very big shark.

  9. Sorry about your loss Rob. I do recall you mentioning she was sick and living with you.


Aloha! Thanks for taking time to talk story. Your comment will be posted soon.
