Snorkel Site on Kauai: This beach on the northern part of the island featured some good snorkeling. You may be able to discern some rain in the picture. This made for a special experience as both the rain and the ocean were bathtub temperature.

Dawn on Lake Shasta: Lake Shasta is a great spot in California to go houseboating. My brother and I got the roof, which afforded us excellent star gazing at night and great wake-up views like this one.
