    Animal Balance’s Sandy Bailey of California and Pam Dickens of Florida participated in the Kauai Marathon and Half Marathon over the weekend, Bailey doing the half marathon and Dickens doing the full marathon.

Florence Toyofuku was enthralled by the artistry of Abigail Boroughs and her artistic friends who created art from beach trash (if you missed it, you missed a great exhibit!). Isobel Storch (she’s also a member of the Friends of the Kapaa Public Library) said Florence wants to do this after visiting the Kauai Society of Artists gallery (Call for entries is Saturday).

Pam Dickens (she’s here with the Animal Balance people) said there’re no hills in Florida so was praying for the downs while running the full marathon at the Kauai Marathon. But she was grateful for getting dumped on at mile 23 after running all the uphills. She got company from Sandy Bailey (another Animal Balance volunteer) of California, who got to do the half marathon.

OK, don’t foget to visit Paulo when the first Grove Farm Museum Sugar Plantation Bash opens at 11 a.m. Saturday. The event will help get Paulo get back on its feet (we like that yellow locomotive, but Paulo is better on the fire -up days). Hopefully, Paula Rosa will have the firewood oven going so they have enough cookies (those are really good!).

And, you can always take time to check out The Ocean Course at Hokuala, where nine of our junior golfers will be participating in the inaugural Kauai Junior Classic Saturday and Sunday, presented by the Hawaii State Junior Golf Association (does this mean Lauren Yama will be out on the course? Or Mary Bea Porter-King, who happened to be shopping at The Kauai Culinary Market?).
