Greetings from Kona, Hawaii Island, Hawaii.
It is amazing how different one island is from another. Pretty much the same flowers and the same feral cats, but a whole different ambiance. There is much more land here. And fewer people. That makes the atmosphere more laid back and mellow.
OC and I took a sunset stroll through the hotel gardens. We came upon a small pond surrounded by vegetation. I was looking for flora to photograph when the water caught my attention. In lieu of a tripod, I braced the camera on OC’s shoulder, and took a couple of pics. They pretty much sum up the perfection that was today.
After our stroll OC and I went to the restaurant and had a bite to eat. We chatted and laughed. I told him how much he’s changed my life. He told me how much I had changed his. Sometimes we think we’re just a story on a blog because together we seem to good to be true. Kind of like this photograph ….
Kalakaua Cottage, a replica of the beach house of King David Kalakaua, which was built on this site but destroyed in the late 1950s. King David used to fish and swim in the tide pools OC and I are hoping to get a chance to snorkel in tomorrow. I understand Keauhou Beach is a natural honu habitat. If I’m lucky I’ll get a photo.
