Well, no photos this post … I didn’t bring my camera to the beach and most of the afternoon was spent at Costco and Safeway, which was not an ideal photo op, to be honest.
Juliet, Dave and I got out this morn and headed to Makena Beach in South Maui. John had work to do and has been fighting illness, so he decided to stay back at the homestead. We’ll drag him to the beach on Tuesday, which is our next and only opportunity to cool out … it’s only fair that ALL singers get to the beach while we’re here.
Makena Beach=a little slice of heaven.
Gorgeous water, no big waves. Perfect for floating around in the swells. Juliet and I were good girls in-training … walked the beachfront up and down before we went out to play, then floated around in the water for a while as Dave slept on the beach with our stuff. Unfortunately, we had to get back to our chores for the day and could only stay for about an hour or so. Rats. It was tough to leave …
Our afternoon in Maui: we could have been ANYwhere in world while in Costco and Safeway, and we were there for a long while. Shopping for food and stuff for Saturday’s memorial service for Juliet’s dad. We’re putting together all the food, singing with a chorus and on our own during the service, making sure the sound system is set up in the church, and BIG TIME support for Juliet. It’s the main reason we’re in Maui. All the other gigs are bonuses in addition to this very important day. We’ll ply Juliet with loads of good wine and company when it’s all said and done. I’ll post pics of the day tomorrow night.
Spent the evening at Makawao Union Church rehearsing the choral music with the Olinda Chorale. It’s going to be an especially lovely service in memory of Pat Green. We’re singing a bunch of his compositions with the chorale and as Clockwork. He was well-loved, and it’s so heart-warming to see how embraced Juliet is here in her hometown.
Back ‘home’ late, baked a pizza from Costco, drank some wine, checked some email … got a lot of prep in the morning and then the memorial set up and all.
I know we’re in Maui … it’s a stunning place to be … and we’re workin’ our little bottoms off … got a little of what we’ve been wishing for, I guess. NOT complaining, just taking note that it’s a heck of a lot of work, enjoyable as singing may be.
OH, and we seem to have a chicken roosting on the front porch. She has about 10 eggs she’s nesting on … I’ll photograph her tomorrow …
