Life is a Beach (Or Something Like That)

Snowy, cold morning but my thoughts are in Hawaii and 15 years ago when Pam and I made our first trip there together to visit my daughter Ryan.  Some photos from back then:

Next week Pam and I will be heading out on our first travel venture after 2 years of staying Covid home.  We will be visiting Ryan this time in Maui and then will spend a couple days in Oahu.  While in Honolulu we will of course re-visit Waikiki Beach as we did back in 07.   

Last month when I was including Christmas tunes from various people, I did a post on Nick Lowe and his 4 record compilation The Doings.  While that Christmas tune of Nick's was not included on the compilation, here is a tune of his that was on the compilation.  It always runs thru my mind as I get ready to travel somewhere.  (The video here is another from the excellent Daryl's House series.)
