A Few Days with Low Bloggable Activity

Tuesday was a relatively low activity day for us in Kona. It was our last full day on the Big Island, so we took it a bit easy, heading up to Holualoa to visit a couple of artist galleries and a hand-made ukulele shop. We also made a quick trip to Costco where, for $3, I was able to retrieve all of our snorkeling photos from the memory card that would not be read by our now-unusable waterproof camera. Thank you Costco!

After lunch, we spent a couple hours walking around the shops on the waterfront before heading back to Don’s Breezeway Lounge to complete our mojito taster flight mission and watch the sunset.

I think it was an even more beautiful sunset than on the previous occasion – more clouds in the sky translate to more multi-colored reflections.

On Wednesday, it was time to leave Kona and head for Kauai! Kona is great, and all, but Kauai is my favorite island, no question about it. We got settled into the condo and relaxed on the lanai to view the harvest moon.

Staying in Kapa’a, on the east side of the island, this is the only place I’m ever able to get up early enough, and be in a good place, to see the sunrise, so I set my alarm for my first sunrise viewing of the trip.

We spent the rest of the day settling in, walking around some of the shops in Kapa’a, and resting up for all the adventures we have planned the next few days!
