Hawaii–Day 12-13-14

And then the rains came!!!  And in very short order the little gully next to our condo suite filled up:002

So this became a shopping day – stay in the dry as much s possible.  Let it rain!!!

And rain it did – about 4 A.M. we woke to a torrent – that came right into the condo, seeping under the walls and soaking the carpets.  So we moved:


Advantage – we’re almost all packed for the trip home Saturday.

Then we went out to thoroughly explore Paia, which seems to be a surfer/hippie hangout.  We watched a poet at work:015

Then had dinner at Willie Nelson/Woodie Harrelson’s restaurant:018

The sunset was glorious:


Makes us hopeful for – at last – snorkeling in the morning!

The morning of our last full day in Hawaii dawned bright and blue and beautiful – so off to the beach we went.  Because of the storms, the water was quite muddy, so not conducive to snorkeling.  But we played in the surf:




And clambered on the lava rock:093

We found some coral - H is holding up a piece for Grizz to take a picture - and some anemone.  The pictures taken with our waterproof camera are on film, so when that gets converted, I’ll share some of those (assuming any of them turn out – ah, the digital life!!)

It’s been a fabulous vacation and we’ve thoroughly enjoyed every minute.  There’s so much more to share – will put some photos together by subject and post over the next little while.  In the meantime, we have two days of travel ahead before we’re actually at home – see you next week!

Happy travels!           Blessings, Peg


  1. Sounds like you have had a great time in spite of the cloudy weather. Safe trip home.

  2. Wishing you a safe trip home. So does that mean no snorkeling? It was a wonderful trip though I am sure. Blessings to you all

  3. I still find it amusing that Willie and Woody are such good friends! LOL How is their restaurant, anyway?
