Hippie, Dippy and a Nutbar(me) - Ken

So begins the final day in Paradise. The plan, or should I say my plan, is to have a quiet laid back day of sun, surf and introspection.

I begin with a cup or two of the finest 100% Kona coffee. Life is good! We walked up the shore to Sharks Cove hoping for a photo Opp or some other stunning visual display. They call it Turtle Beach because there are lots of Turtles. I was kind of hoping that with all of the snorkelers in Sharks Cove we might get a real interesting show. Nope, just people face down in the water and still breathing. Could it be that paradise has let me down or have I come to expect too much?

We went to Foodland and got a couple of drinks and pastries which we took to the beach to enjoy while watching the ocean. Nope, I haven’t been let down. What a nice way to begin a lazy day.

We went back to the apartment I saw a local hippie hanging out the wash. After lunch we went back to the beach, but this time to frolic in the surf and soak up some rays. The waves were the largest we had seen, and were a lot of fun to play in.

Now, after a while everyone started to leave the beach and we did too thinking that it was or . Turns out that it was . Oh well, good time to shower and stress about the flight tomorrow. I know, nothing to stress about.
BAGS DON’T PACK THEMSELVES!
ALARMS DON’T SET THEMSELVES!
CARS DON’T DRIVE THEMSELVES TO THE RENTAL CAR COMPANY!
PEOPLE DON’T CHECK THEMSELVES AND THEIR BAGS INTO THE AIRPORT!
OK, the last one is wrong.

Louise thought that it would be a good idea to go to Jameson’s for a nice last dinner in Hawaii. I don’t know, we could lose our street parking spot. One look from Louise told me that wasn’t really a concern. Hmmmm…

We had a wonderful dinner on the patio, watching the sunset over the ocean. Picture perfect! Great idea Louise!


I know that you are wondering, we did lose our prime street parking. Just sayin’
I went to bed early () after we packed, because comes early, and lay awake until about . Pretty smart.
