|27 July 2021 : Recovery Day|
We have found that adults do not travel well. However, waking up in a spectacular new place gives recovery a hearty good start! Sparkly blue morning; coffee and tea barely drunk, and we're off down the Beach Access across the street to see if there really is an ocean...
|28 July 2021 : Day Two too busy to describe|
Really, not so much. We mostly hung out in the water. We went shopping. There was a lot of talking. The inter- and intra-family dynamics are fascinating, and often evoke laughter and a shared acknowledgment of consanguinity.
|29 July 2021 : Day 3: Nothing to report|
Just another family day in Paradise. Morning: fewer clouds over Waimea summit, where our weather comes from.
|30 July 2021 : Puako Day 4|
For us, the day started with a good fruit breakfast and tea: Except for the arrival (finally!) of Damiana and Rich, the day's main event was the trek to Keauhou and a Night Snorkel with Manta Rays.
|31 July 2021 : day 5|
After last night's late night return from the mantas, we got a slow start to market in Hawi – a disappointing market, with very few produce vendors. Nevertheless, we got some beautiful eggplants and some lettuce, a pineapple, and two gorgeous red onions...
|1 August 2021 : Welcome to the Apocalypse?|
So far, a tsunami warning (we are staying in a Tsunami Evacuation Zone) and a wildfire. Neither threatens us. The warning was withdrawn within the hour it was issued...
|2 August 2021 : Puako day 7|
Wildfire under control, the brown sky has mostly dissipated; the wind is down. We're ready for our next crisis!
|3 August 2021 : Puako day 8|
Fire mostly under control except for a few hot spots up where they may be just as happy to let it burn. Finished the Ono for lunch.
|4 August 2021 : Day 9|
This morning, as early as we could, Michael and three daughters went to Waimea Farmers Market. Our friend Brenda visited in the afternoon with her sister Deanna...
|5 August 2021 : M-77|
Rochelle presented me with my 2021 birthday card – reminiscent of 2017, same day, same island. Inspected the house next door, at auction next month, no reserve, but valued at $8...
