A New Light, A New Day

Wow, so here we are, my own real web page and our first real blog. Where to start? I have been writing for years, I used to keep an active blog on Myspace. Does anybody remember Myspace? Shesh, I am old right. After that, I got a Live Journal, I admit no one ever read that but not because I wasn’t interesting. I barely ever posted. I always kept a journal growing up, too. My first “diary” I was eleven. I loved writing, would write stories and poetry as a kid.
We have started The Shade of Writing as a Shadow’s Lair family venture. The Shadow’s Lair Family is a family of two dads and two kids, not to unusual. We love to travel, and will post about our travels, everyday lives, fantasy writings, and just a general hodgepodge of things. We also have a goal to one day own a family farm and shop. We will use this blog to update our progress on this goal. For those of you who found this after following the Shadow’s Lair for years, thank you for your continued support. If this is your first time reading our writing, welcome and thank you. Feel free to follow us on Patreon.

A pokemon fan fiction

By Cera Knapp

Hi, my name is Cera and I want to get my final Princess key. I need it so I can be the queen of Kalos region. While others tell me I have a difficult road ahead I know it will be easy for me with my “eeveelutions.” There is one thing that stands in my way though. My eevee,  Eeveen is constantly targeted by Team Rocket. One day though I will beat them once and for all and become Queen of Kalos! Let’s go Eeveen and catch them all!

Chart House Waikiki Review

By Aaron Knapp

 

Is there a better way to spend time than to be near the harbor? You have the smell of the ocean, the sound of gulls, and waves crashing the shoreline.  Step inside and be greeted by the sound of a live band and the wafting scent of good food?  Even if this sensory overload is not your cup of tea, the quality of the food at Chart House Waikiki should.

My associates and I had pre-reservations at the restaurant.  It is recommended to make reservations as the place swiftly gets packed making for quite the wait time. You are able to make reservations online at the Chart House Website.  We took a seat, and after reading the menu most of us ordered the evening specials. Food at the Chart House is kept in season, so your red fin tuna may be out of season, sad panda.  The evening special I received was a salad, an entree and a dessert.

 

The salad came with fresh ground pepper being served by the server.  Entrees came out with choice toppings for your potatoes.  The fish I had was moon fish, it was great, easy to cut, and tender.  The asparagus was steamed and tasted okay.  After a delicious dish of fish, I received my pineapple sherbet.  Even though the sherbet seems like a child’s dessert, I was in Hawaii and wanted the pineapple.  The sherbet was interesting, and not too shabby.  I was glad the sherbet was all I got as I was full after my entrée.  The Chart House was a good late night stop, all I can say is much like the rest of the island bring your wallet.  The Chart House is not expensive, compared to others.  I would recommend the restaurant to anyone in the area.
