The thing I liked best about this--aside from watching my boys command a sub for nearly 40 minutes--was that the exhibit (which was shabby by today's hi tech standards) was actually salvaged and reconstructed by former crew mates specifically for this museum. I just thought that was spectacular. And, as per my 'hi tech' comment above...seriously, what more do boys need than a bunch of levers that move, switches that flick, and two wheels that turn? I mean, really. If it had gone BOOM occasionally they would have never left.
I loved it.HeatherViaPhone

Deeply perturbing irony?
Our digital camera broke.
There is no money to replace it.
The guy at the camera shop holds out very little hope for it.
So the rest of the Hawaii Trip will be relegated to cell phone pics (not horrible, but not great) or 35mm (which isn't bad for life, but bad for blogging and bad for being sure you 'have that shot'!)
Here's what the kids did today:
Northwest shore...we spellunked around and looked at (minor) tidepools. Muddy due to the soggy weather, nonetheless beautiful though.
After this we tried for naps (HA!) and work (sigh) and then sat on the beach with the kids looking at the glorious surf. I watched more of the storm roll in--what a luxury to get to just sit and watch the kids play and not worry about anything else. At all. Spectacularly happy people in a spectacularly gorgeous place.

I know it looks completely frankenstein at this point (how apropos with CraftLit doing Shelley's book right now) but it's already a huge improvement over the first day of unveiling. It's really an extraordinary journey!
