Ella said I worked her too hard yesterday and she just wanted to kick back and relax. She walked me to the door and quite happily waved good-bye as I drove away. I figured she’d be back in bed before I cleared the block.
I figured wrong. Imagine my surprise when Ella showed up at the office. She’d caught the beach bus and came to Waikiki. I asked her why she hadn’t ridden in with me, and she said she didn’t want to ride on the highway, she’d wanted the scenic tour. Then she added that she shouldn’t have bothered, because the bus driver made her sit down and she couldn’t see out the window anyway.
So, instead of taking the highway home, I drove the beach road. I didn’t let Ella stand up and look out the window either, but I did stop at the scenic look out on Diamond Head.
Ella said she didn’t care to climb down the bank to the shore. I think she was just being polite since I was in my work clothes and dressed for an overly air conditioned office, not a bright, sunny beach. Still, I know she enjoyed herself. She certainly had an interesting view.
Yep. That’s a dog on a boogie board. He was looking for his next wave.
More details in next post.
