Today is day 7, Sunday. So much for writing every day!!
Saturday – day 6, June 27. Nice lazy morning! Then we went exploring down to the King’s and Queen’s shops in the Waikoloa. Rosie had a job interview at the Sunglass Hut in the Queen’s Shops … time will tell.
We went exploring up the coast to find Hapuna Beach. First, we found Pauako Beach and Ascension Church. Mass is at 10:00 on Sunday. We found beautiful beaches at both Pauako and Hapuna. Both are north of the Waikoloa turnoff and you can get from Pauako to Hapuna via the little road that parallels the shoreline. Hapuna is a nice, sandy beach for swimming. It has been written up a lot in various books and such.
We hit the pupus at the Waikoloa Marriott on Saturday, we were going to stay for dinner, but the pupu platter was HUGE! We’ll come back for the ocean salt crusted PRIME RIB!
Sunday – June 28: This morning we went to Assumption Church in Kamuela (Waimea) for 8:00 Mass. It is about 1/2 hour away. Nice and cozy Church and the pastor ministers to Ascension Church in Pauako for the 10:00 a.m. Mass too.
Breakfast at the Paniolo Inn. Seat yourself, good food. Half orders of Eggs Benedict and Huevos Rancheros, recommended for return.
After breakfast, explored the local area and found the Waimea Farmer’s Market, every last Sunday of the month next to the Waimea Golf Course. It is at mile marker 51 on the way to Hio, just keep going on highway 19! A huge bouquet of flowers for only 10.00 dollars. I have never seen WHITE antheriums.
Came home and changed the screen on the screen door, saved us some money on a new one!
Dinner time = BBQ – Ahi (again?) and Tube Steaks!!
