Adios Hawaii

This is just a short post to report the end of another great day. We spent the morning sitting on the lanai enjoying a wonderful cool breeze off the golf course, listening to the birds sing, and a mongoose wandering around in the lava. It was incredibly pleasant until it started warming up. It was still really nice, but it was time to move on to something different.

Mainly, Diane wanted to revisit the Waikaloa Beach Resort to watch the sunset on this, our last night on the island. We stayed at that resort, in the building near the water that looks like three joined rings, on a previous visit and spent every night on the area directly in front of it, right on the water’s edge. If you look to the right side of the map, the blue dot indicates where we are at this very moment.

When I put the top down, and lay back, this is the view …

IMG_0227There weren’t too many clouds, and the wind was blowing the volcanic ash a different direction, so it wasn’t as dramatic as we’ve seen in the past, but it was still excellent.

During this visit we got in some of the walking we talk about doing all the time.

Now we’re winding down. Diane is washing all the dirty clothes so our suitcases will smell nice tomorrow.

With that thought, I leave you with this hibiscus that I found on a bush near the swimming pool.

They are actually all over the place, but this one is by the pool …
