Its a small world, after all.

Well, another month has come and gone! We have been here almost two months now. Time is such a funny thing. Somedays is flies and then somedays it goes so slow. We have been making the most of our time here.
Jason had a chance meeting with another Kentuckian. This one actually hit closer to home. He had a meeting at work with the Equal Opportunity Program Manager. The guy (LTC Darren "Stacy" Holbrook) mentioned that he was from KY. So, after the meeting was over, Jason asked where exactly in KY he came from...and you will never guess... Whitesburg! Yes, I know. Jason said he couldn't believe it. He went to Whitesburg High and then graduated from Morehead (Jason, too). He also knew some of Jason's friends and Army buddies from the Morehead days. i.e. Tim Blair and Todd McClean.
Its a small world...even this far from home.
We had a nice relaxing day at the beach on Sunday. We rented umbrellas and chairs from a beach vendor. Not a bad deal actually. They set everything up, including a bucket of ice for your drinks. It was just $20.00 for a half day. We ate a simple lunch from a snack bar and just laid around. The water is still a bit too chilly for me...but Jason went in for a dip.
We have really enjoyed the convenience of walking everywhere. In all of our walking, we have found a nice little beachfront bar/restaurant called RumFire. Its in the Sheraton Waikiki. Somewhat upscale dining, but they have Happy Hour every single day from 5-7. This includes great drink specials, pupu specials, and live music. The best part of the whole thing is the view!!! The bar has floor to ceiling windows on three sides. So, when you look out, you feel as if you are actually on the water. Its a perfect spot to watch the surfers at Waikiki and the sunset. We just love it.
