|We were down at the beach just after 8:00 for a snorkel today. Another nice day! Not many people here at this time.|
|I forgot my camera strap so I couldn't take my camera in the water with me. No fish pictures to show but we did see lots. These paddlers came in for a 30 min rest before setting off again. We stretched out in the sun to dry off before heading back.
|This is in the parking lot by the beach. We see a few of these cute 4 seater carts around the resort. They get preferred parking in a many of the parking lots. (They are for rent but are far pricier than renting a car.)|
|We hung out on the lanai for a while. These are the flowers I could see beside the lanai.|
|After lunch we drove over to the Mauna Lani Bay Hotel for a look around. We've walked over other times but not with a sore knee. The hotel uses these carts to carry people around the resort. There seems to be a steady stream of vans also carrying people to shops, golf courses, etc.|
|I left Kathy looking and went for a walk through the grounds of this hotel and along the beach to the Fairmont Orchid Hotel, the other hotel at Mauna Lani.|
|This is where we were yesterday for a ginger ale.
I walked through the lobby and took a few pictures. They show that the hotel lives up to its name.
|I just stopped in one place to take these next pictures; all within a few feet.|
|I met up with Kathy back at Mauna Lani by pond that had two hammerhead sharks in it.|
|One more stop and we were back home. Kathy selects her wines in large part on the labels. This is the one that caught her eye today.
We also bought a piece of fresh tuna to barbecue this evening. The tuna steaks were $24.00/lb and when Kathy asked how big the one she wanted was, the butcher said, "About 3 lbs." It took us a second to realize he was kidding; he laughed and said really it was only about .5 lbs.
