(Above: A couple of items that Speedfil brought with them to 
the Kona expo.)

(Above: As Patrick and I were walking from the photo shoot, we came across this depression, this crater, this sunken hole. 
I jumped into it, and shot from below.
 Notice the craggly lava formation jutting out!!
"Giant steps are what you take,
walking on the moon." 
Wow! Never thought
I'd write some lyrics from The Police in my blog.)

(Above: There is an inside story to this photo.
I was lying flat with my chest on the ground taking photos.

Patrick goes by me. He sees three cars tap their brakes
indicating they wanted to stop.
One car does.
The two occupants get out of their car and run towards me!!
(I'm oblivious to this because I'm facing the other way---on the ground.)
I get myself up, turn around and look towards Patrick.
In the distance I can see him waving off two people

in a rest-assuredly manner. Patrick then tells me 
that the couple stopped on the Queen K and got out of their car 
thinking that I was hit and crumpled to the ground.
Wow! How kind and thoughtful.
Thank you for checking!!)

Race Day is Here. The Big Dance. Shall we..

(Above: I kinda like this picture.
Patrick looks as though he is scaling a steep mountain.
He looks like he's on the moon.
Or in a wasteland of black lava!!)
