The good news is we had an uneventful flight back to SFO, and everything I have unpacked so far survived the trip. I gave the microscope to Cheryl today to re-assemble and make sure it is OK.
Here is a photo of the Paul and Ron posing for the camera before we took off from Palmyra.
Paul became quite skilled in making hats out of palm fronds and was also instructing others on how to make them. Here are a few examples of the results of his work. He left them all behind for the Palmyra residents as he was not sure Hawaii would allow them through the agricultural inspection one faces both on entry and when exiting Hawaii.
As with last year, I may do a few more posts like this one, but soon this blog will go into hiatus until hopefully I return to Palmyra next summer to complete the 3 year project.
