Awoke too early, buzzing about a travel day; packed and ready to go half an hour ahead of plan ...so the rest of the day was easy: a leisurely Stromboli (delicious bread stuffed with egg, potatoes, and, I think, Laulau (taro leaves), the what passes for rush hour on Kauai, gas up across from the sadly defunct Hanamaulu Cafe and Teahouse, tussle with TSA, and the the Island Show...

Out to the beach first thing this morning; seas light, no wind. First thing I see with my face in the water is ...FISH! A bunch of different ones like the Achilles Tangs at right...

We saw 'em all: Oahu, featuring Waikiki Beach (as close as I want to get!), Kaluapapa where my great-Auntie Helen was Big Nurse for decades, Maui's Haleakala above the clouds ... and then we were wheels down on the Kona side of the Big Island of Hawaii.
Kailua-Kona is rapidly Honolulu-izing itself -- we have noticed this happening each time we return. Now the necrosis has extended well up Hualalai, almost to Keahole Airport, and up toward Captain Cook as far as Holualoa. |

Internet is iffy, and I don't know how much I can get posted before it shuts down altogether, but all's well, and I'll get this day posted as soon as I can.
Manini Beach isn't a public park; it's owned by a foundation and watched over by a crew of Aunties. Maybe that's why it's so wonderful?

Sandy had four eggs (Can't just give two, she says) and three short bananas in their fullest prime. (If you want 'em)
A little later we go back for a snorkel before the wind and waves pick up.|
