Big Island Vacation

January 27, 2012 — Leave a comment

What a wonderful week on the Big Island. So many memories:

  • Lazy days by the ocean, pool, and lagoon
  • Mai Tais
  • A trip to Akaka Falls
  • A trip to the Kīlauea Volcano with day and night views of Halema’uma’u Crater
  • Shopping in Kona, Hawi, Waikoloa, and many more locations.
  • A trip to the northern region of the Island, taking in the tropical side of the Island
  • 37.26 miles on the run log, the longest being a nice 13.1 run around Waikoloa Resort
  • Read through and chewed on four of the Pauline Letters (“Go Eat PopCorn!”)
  • Started reading and digesting Hal Higdon’s, Marathon: The Ultimate Training Guide
  • Several great meals – notables being: Ken’s House of Pancakes, Hawaiian Style Cafe, Kirin Restaurant at our resort, and Eddie Aikau Restaurant and Surf Museum
  • Tried paddle boarding – and didn’t fall in or make a fool of myself in front of e beach full of people!
  • Enjoyed a great luau with my wahine!
  • Watched the whales – even saw a couple jump out of the water.
  • And probably a bunch of other stuff that just doesn’t come to mind as we’re flying back home…

But most of all, I enjoyed spending time with my wonderful wife and starting our 26th year of marriage.

So it’s back to work on Monday – gotta start replenishing the bank for the next vacation!
