Greetings from voggy Hawaii! Vog - volcanic smog - made everything quite grey on Wednesday when we landed in Kona. And while it did obstruct the views, it didn't really affect us. Apparently we can check into a hotel and fall asleep whether there's a clear sky or not.
This is just a drive-by post. Hubby's still asleep, coffee's brewing and I'm debating whether I'm going to walk before breakfast or not.
Here's what we've seen so far:
A neat little farmer's market in Kailua. We bought some amazing, fresh organic bananas - a bunch for a buck.
I've decided I love geckos.
We visited a coffee plantation. For those of you who watch Dirty Jobs, this is the same plantation. Fortunately we didn't have to work as hard for our cup of coffee as Mike Rowe did. Hubert the cat sat with me while I sipped my Kona.
We've left Kailua and we're at the resort where our friends are getting married. I think we're going to hike out to see some petroglyphs today, there's a sunset sail in the evening, and I think I hear a beach calling me!
