A morning spent in a tropical paradise
can lull you into incaution.
Diamond Head from Fort DeRussy Beach, Honolulu
Relaxing under a beach umbrella
gives you a devil-may-care attitude.
The Good Life
Throw in some intense paddleboarding
under the hot sun,
and your baked brain is no longer
looking out for you.

The Ever-Patient Goes for It!
Suddenly, Happy Hour hops into your thoughts!
Seats at a breezy bar overlooking the surfer-filled waves.
Shore Bird Restaurant & Beach Bar, Honolulu
Surfer-Filled Waves, Honolulu
Something cool and tasty,
festooned with tropical fruit and a cute umbrella.
You succumb to the seductive call of the mai tai.
Light rum with a float of dark,
flavors of tart, bright lemon and lime,
sweet orange curacao.

Three mai tais sliding so smoothly down your throat.
Umbrellas from Emptied Mai Tai Glasses
Good thing I got those beach chairs
propped up between the foot rail and the bar
before I started sipping, then slurping.
Good thing I was there with the E-P,
who gave me that LOOK
when I ordered a third mai tai,
then sweetly let me hang myself.
Good thing he was there
to escort me home,
after I failed miserably
at untangling the beach chairs
from that tricky bar.
'Nuff said! LOL
