Just had to pass this along for those of you who might need a chuckle. You probably noticed I haven't done any political posts the past couple weeks. That's because I've been on Kauai and Maui and so I've made a few posts to Traveling Rainers. For those of you unlucky enough to actually have real estate business to attend to - you can experience a virtual vacation through me. In fact if you want to take up a collection and send it over, I'll gladly stay another week or two and let you know how it is. Thanks.
Anyway, as you're no doubt aware, everyone's favorite Presidential Candidate, Barack Obama, has also been in Hawaii this week too - over on Oahu. Apparently he spent some of his growing up years there so he is somewhat of a returning son or some such drivel. He has been getting very brief mention on the Maui TV news station we've watched.
Today on the radio they did a quick report that he's going home either today or tomorrow but spent yesterday snorkeling at Hanauma Bay, which is a glorious shallow volcano crater offering some of the most spectacular and easiest snorkel views anywhere. He followed that up with a visit to the famous Blowhole at Halona, where he threw a lei into the ocean to honor his parents - (which ones he honors is actually unclear but it made a great photo op).
According to the radio report "Thereafter he stood on the rocks in silent contemplation of the Blowhole (brief pause) probably getting inspiration for his speech at next months convention."
I thought I was going to drive off the road. That's funny I don't care who you are. Aloha
