Windsurfing

Time to take care of some of the things we wanted to do last time we were in Hawaii but didn't have time for. First up: Windsurfing. We rented a pair of windsurfers for half a day. We got no lessons or intruction, so what followed was fairly frustrating, painful, and comedic.

Interesting sunburn pattern
In addition to a healthy respect for balancing on water, ropes eating my hands, and the forces of Mother Nature, I also gained this fancy sunburn pattern. Tim thought it was a map to an uncharted treasure island, but since he was the one who put sunscreen on my back, it was all just his imagination.

Albino gecko
This gecko also tried to mate with me because the sunburn looked like the distinctive markings of his wife.
