Well, I’ve had an exciting few weeks and not always in a fun way. The “not in a fun way” part involved multiple computer failures, computer viruses in hotel “business” centers and discovering that Android tablets are useful in a business context – as long as you don’t rely heavily on Microsoft Access data bases. You really don’t want to hear about those trials and tribulations, just know that I’ve got a reliable machine and Internet access again! YEAH!!!
On the fun side, while I was in the Seattle – Tacoma area for the NW Dive & Travel Expo, I made a quick side trip to Kalispell, Montana with my sister. She had business, but I got to roam around, explore and take photos. Kalispell is within spitting distance of Glacier National Park, but the park was still a bit frozen. Instead, I explored Lone Pine State Park right on the edge of Kalispell and got this trailside panorama of the city cradled by the mountain range.
There is a delightful and sly sense of humor in Kalispell, as you can see from these two photos –
A huge “thank you!” to my show “assistants” for all of the great help during the show! Remus (a Kosraean living in the Seattle – Tacoma area), and Wolfe and Donna (who came to help on their way home from their trip to Germany!) did a tremendous job and it was terrific to see you all again!
After the show I drifted down the coast to California, where I got to sail, go to a Scottish festival and experience a Cross Fit class with my kids.
Finally, on my way home I took some photos of two of Honolulu’s “personalities”.
Enough about my adventures!
This weekend, June 8 and 9, Bruce will be staffing the Kosrae Island booth (# 629) at the Long Beach Scuba Show, along with Grant Ismael from the Kosrae Visitors Bureau. We are offering a great show special, so stop, ask questions (book a trip :)) and generally make a nuisance of yourself.
Have a great weekend!
PS – We are still looking for a few divers to fill out the October coral monitoring team.
