We had a drive to Waikoloa Village, which is about 7 miles inland from Mauna Lani, so Kathy could go to the post office. We picked up a couple of things at the grocery store and stopped for lunch at a little Mexican food kiosk that we like.
We walked down to the Fairmont Orchid to try their beach. It is a 10 min walk.
Quite a sheltered little bay, the water was warm, but pretty murky, maybe from all the wind lately. There were lots of fish even in knee deep water.
Kathy was excited because a turtle came along and rubbed shoulders with her while she was swimming.
Since we’d had quite a big lunch, Happy Hour at Tommy Bahama’s for a couple of appy’s seemed appropriate.
We’ve been here quite a few times and it’s always good. We shared 3 appetizers and had a drink and walked back to our place as the sun was going down. It is showing signs of being brighter.
