Sometimes I really wish I had an iPhone

Justin's iPhone is like magic! It takes pictures. It records videos. It offers internet access. It even has a freakin' flashlight function. 

*Eyes iPhone jealously*

Maybe when I'm a super-rich-very-famous author I shall buy myself one of these amazing contraptions... Until then, here are some pics and videos of our trip so far! 

 Lovely Waikiki! This was taken a few hours after I landed---I was running on about 3 hours of sleep. Thus, the glazed eyes and zombie face. 

At Pearl Harbor. I was going to poke fun at Justin for making such a serious face in this photograph, but then I remembered that we were standing right above the remains of the USS Arizona and the hundreds of men who died within its walls. Hmm, yeah. Not exactly a time for smiling!

Sunset! This is one of those pictures I wish I could I jump inside and live in forever.


At the Waikiki Aquarium. Fortunately, we arrived at the Aquarium just in time for the feeding of the Hawaiian Monk Seals! Once the seals noticed the buckets of fish, they started barking at each other angrily. It was hilarious! And man, they are quite cute. :o)

Oh, on the reading front, I've finished three books on my trip so far: The Wave, Confessions of the Sullivan Sisters, and The Pillars of the Earth. All good reads, but The Pillars of the Earth was a bit tedious at times. Plus, I'm not sure how I feel about the way women are portrayed in the book. So much discussion over their physical qualities, especially boobs! Sure, boobs are great but do I really need to know how a character's breasts have changed over the course of three decades?

Well, off to dinner, I suppose! Tomorrow we go scuba diving for the first time since September. I'm a little nervous. Part of my brain is still convinced that my lungs will explode!


  1. Sounds fun Caroline! Glad to see you're blogging even from Hawaii:) You'll have to let us know how the scuba diving is - I'm deathly afraid to try it.

  2. Looks fantastic.

    Possibly even a bit better than rainy Seaham, UK where I'm working today.

    Keep enjoying your trip (and I hear ya about that Iphone jealousy!)

  3. LOL 'boobs through the years' is just the kind of detail a guy writer would include.

    How was CotSS? I have heard good things :) And what is The Wave?

    I am jealous of smartphones too :( They would make twitter easier! Right now I can only tweet from my laptop.
