Yes…it is. Without a doubt this is the most wonderful place on earth. At least according to me! 🙂
We figured out that this is my 11th or 12th time to Hawaii since 1990. I can’t believe that I’ve been lucky enough to travel here so many times. It’s Mia’s thrid trip and she is having the time of her life.
We’ve been hanging loose, no schedule, nothing to do but swim, sun, go on nature walks and watch movies.
Dad was able to crack open a fresh coconut from one of the trees on the property and he and Mia scarfed it right from the shell. I toasted some of it as well and served it up over fresh banana pancakes the next day.
We got to Honolulu 45 minutes early on Wednesday and were able to catch the 1:15 hop to Molokai. Since we were originally booked on the 4:10 we gained a ton of extra time. Our luggage even made it!
After loading up at the market we took to main road East until we arrived at the house. There was time to unpack, sear some Ahi on the grill and have a nice swim in the pool. Mia surprised us all by loosing her front tooth so the tooth fairy had to make a visit to the Island!
l before the day caught up with us and we went to bed.
We’ve gone into town and looked around a bit. There is not much to do or see here if you are looking to shop or eat out. That’s one of the reasons we love it here. It is so quiet, no one on the beaches, no traffic or tourists to speak of. Not even a stop light on the entire island. Pure Heaven!!!
Mia saw a dog in the doorway of a local store front so she went in to meet him. The shop owner, Auntie Terri, told her his name was R.J. and assured us he was a lover. Mia was out back with him in a flash, rubbing his belly and cooing over him. On our way out Auntie Terri told us that he was only 2 years old and that she had rescued him from living wild in the mountains. She went on to say that he was great when with her in the shop but a handful if left on his own at home. Jordan asked if he was a “chewer” and she replied…”Well he somhow escaped the house and got the neighbor’s goat.” “How’s the goat” we asked with alarm. She simply stated “Dead.” So much for a lover! We laughed about the “goat killer” all the way home. For parents that are a tad overprotective of their child this little adventure surely gave us puase!
We drove out to Halawa Valley the other day ans the scenery along the way was magnifiicent. Once we arrived we took our time and explored a bit. The views of Halawa Falls are stunning. You really have the feeling of being at the end of the earth.
