Fred and Diane arrived here a little after midnight and after sitting around catching up we were all ready for a good night’s sleep.
After breakfast we headed down to the beach. Luckily, we were given a Sedona minivan that all 6 of us could fit into.
I think everyone put on some sunscreen, hopefully reef friendly.
At this time of the day there weren’t too many people on the beach. We spent a couple hours in the water and stretched out in the sun.
The water was a little murky but nice and warm.
The ladies walked over to the Wednesday garden market at Waikoloa, about a 40 minute walk.
Fred and I sat on the lanai watching a large bird in the tree by the lanai. We determined it was an immature Black-crowned night heron. They get to be about 64 cm tall with a wingspan of about a meter.
We drove over to the shopping area and had lunch at the Three Fat Pigs restaurant in Waikoloa.
The ladies continued with some shopping; patience was exercised.
Christmas decorations were evident. Seems pretty early as American Thanksgiving isn’t for a week or so.
Over stop at the Mauna Lani shops and we headed home; the start of Happy Hour. We are heading over to the pool for a few minutes. More to come . . .
