Sunday, August 1: Argh … it’s the first of August. Only 17 days left! Today we went to Church with Pat to 8:00 mass. We had beakfast at the Paniolo Inn and then went to look for the Hawaii Preparatory Academy to turn in my application. The deadline was August 2nd, tomorrow. We found the elementary/middle school and high school campuses, interesting. We drove to Foodland for suppplies and then down to Kawaiae to explore the beaches.
We checked out Spencer, Hapuna and 69 beaches, all beautiful. We drove to the Mauna Lani and the shops there as well. The economy is doing a number on the little mall there and the food prices for lunch at the Tommy B store are ridiculous, so we had lunch at home.
We practiced on the range after lunch and we both realized that we need consistent practice to get better.
Woah … gues who showed up at the Dinner at the Blue Dragon in Kawaiae tonight! Anna and Katie, they decided at the last minute to come on over and surprised me with their visit. Everyone but me knew they were coming. They are staying at the Mauna Kea up the Kohala coast. Live 40’s big band music!! Excellent meal and great music, dance floor – highly recommended!
Saturday, July 31: We went down to Kona to explore and find some authentic Kona coffee. We started at Kona Joe’s (expensive tourist trap), at milepost 114 and worked our way backward to Kona, ending up with a lunch at Bubba Gump and a movie, Inception, what a mind-breaker!
Dinner at home, wine and cheese!
Friday, July 30: 9:00 a..m. water aerobics today – good exercise, should do it regularly! After aerobics, we headed to the beach today, A-Beach, but first lunch at the Marriott. We relaxed at the beach with their banana chairs and took a few winks in the afternoon. Found some vodka samplers to try at the market down at Queen’s marketplace for our martinis later.
Movie at home was Miss March, a WASTE!
