Shower Tree Shadows

Trees make for great shadows-often reminding me of something. This one looks like they are waving as the parade goes by.

It's been hurricane season here in Hawaii and we've got them for sure, as we are witnessing two back to back hurricanes this week. Hurricane Madeline veered off to the south-storm surges from the waves caused enough damage on the Big Island, but still, was too close for comfort. Lester, which was right behind Madeline, seemed even more formidable as it has the potential to cause lots of damage to most of the islands. As I write this, it has weakened and seems to be taking a more northerly path. I'm hoping that by this time tomorrow, we will really be heaving a big sigh of relief.

Here on Molokai, we depend on the barge to come in twice a week to deliver our goods-everything, really. While shopping on Tuesday, I learned that there will be no barge until Thursday of next week (barge comes in on Mondays and Thursdays) due to the storms. That meant stocking up on what you normally go to the store for twice a week. We also have to make sure our vehicles have full tanks of gas since fuel comes in once a month by barge (and I've yet to learn what that schedule is). Someone once told me that life here on Molokai is simpler but harder. The dependency on the barge delivering goods can make it harder. When the store runs out, they are out until the barge comes in. Having said this, I hope this shifts your perspective when you are out grocery shopping-we always have much to be thankful for, right?

Join us as a group of us (yes-there are many of us!) from around the world post our shadow shots over at Shadow Shot Sunday 2. Entertain your muse and be amused by stopping by to see what others have posted!

I'm just going to "barge" in here with a comment: I love your shadowy sidewalk, but with all your rain, I'm sure that getting that shot was hit or miss.

Ah, we i the modern world seem a bit softer than our ancestors. But awaiting supplies these days and being dependent of the occasional barge can be a hardship. Happily the damage was way less than it could have been...
