Very long day of flights from Oregon... Arrived in Lihue 15 hours after we got up at home. Budget rental car was a dream... We got our minivan and were out of there in less than 10 minutes. Sad for all those that wanted a compact... They were out of them, and we saw 5 families waiting. Hit Costco, hubby ran to Kmart, not-so-little brother ate at the Costco food court while my mom and dd and I bought out half the store.
Then off to snorkel bobs for masks and fins (we have tubes)... And then north to our rental Hale Emmalani in Princeville. Arrived at 5 pm, after landing at 2 pm! We are here! Lihue has changed so much, and Kapaa is huge now.
Our house is beautiful. Brother is thrilled with his bachelor pad cabana. Mom and dd are in twins in the front bedroom that has Japanese screens for a door (not complete privacy I might add.) The master bathroom has a ridiculous 2 person jacuzzi--would take 3 water heaters to fill it. And the backyard has a beautiful private lap pool. The yard has all kinds of trees... Coconut, lychee and I think guava.
We dumped our gear, dd jumped in the pool, and mom and I headed for foodland 2 minutes away. Spent another small fortune (did get a makai card.). And then ordered burgers from Chevron. Dd had the huli chicken from foodland for dinner. Everyone raved, then mom and I told the boys it was Chevron burgers lol
Passed out by 8:30 pm, and are up with the sun. Going to eat and find a beach.
Everything is so beautiful, and hubby is laughing because at home I sleep in a cave... Here everything is open-windows and shades....
Have a beautiful day everyone!
