Sun, surf and Kolibri.



Ms Jane's nieces and nephew are here, along with her sisters and her mother. We're about to wander over to her cousin's place for a barbecue. Such a hard life this!

    1. My first thought on seeing that last pic.

    2. Yeah, my newest blog entry isn't likely to help that.

  2. My sympathies for your struggle, Scott. And the Kolibris are fantastic, although it took me a few pages to get used to the typing action on mine. I think the keys are slightly smaller than most, as I kept hitting the wrong keys when I first started using my one.

    P.S.- Check your letterbox when you get home. ;-)

    1. The key actions are quite similar to my Bijou, so I got used to it pretty quickly. But I know what you mean, the key positioning is different.

      I got your letter, I have typed a response, but I have yet to get it to a letterbox! You will see it this week, I promise.

  3. Tsk! I wish for snow in winter.

    There seems to have been a flurry of Kolibri-praise recently but I've yet to succumb to the desire to really search one out. A "for parts" one sold on eBay US for some $80 this week.

    1. For parts? Sounds like a challenge to repair!

      Snow.... What is this.... 'Snow' you speak of?

  4. Nice beaches. I would like to find a lonely place on one of the beaches near me so I can type.

    I like the beaches in winter, but I would rather be in the North playing in the snow.

    One day I will own a Kolibri. The only place I see them is on Epay for way too much for my budget. I was watching the $80 one to see if it would sell.

    1. Mmmmm They are very well constructed, so it is worth-while. I hope you get one!

  5. Ah, that looks so relaxing and beautiful. Cheers from one Kolibrista to another.

    1. They are so good! But clearly very expensive to make.

  7. That picture of the beach and the sky could easily be a stockphoto. Are you sure you're not kidding us about your vacation? ;-)

    1. Oh, I got much better photos later in the day. This was just a weekend away, but it was a nice one. I've got a real break coming up soon.
