|Kathy enjoyed her birthday breakfast on the lanai, opening some cards and gifts.|
|After breakfast, we went over to the exercise room for a bit of cycling. Actually, one of us went over to take a picture.|
|When Kathy came back after about 30 min. of cycling we headed down to the beach for a swim. Kathy had a quick chat with her Mom just before we left.
The water was nice and warm, and fairly clear.
|Nice big school of mostly yellow tangs.
is a video I took while I was watching for several minutes.
Like being in a big aquarium!
|I think if I carved some of the fish I've seen, people would think I'd made them up.
We were in the water for about 45 minutes.
|We stretched out on loungers for a few minutes and dried off a bit before heading back to the condo.|
|Around 11:00 we drove about 15 min. to Kukio Bay. This is where Tania and Travis were married 5 years ago.|
|There is a park here that is part of the Hualalai Resort. You have to pick up a pass at a guard house to be able to get to the beach. Lots of pretty ritzy places here so no riff-raff allowed. This little bay is a favorite of locals with kids.|
|Kathy is posing here quite close to where the ceremony took place.|
|Here's that very handsome Travis fellow waiting for his bride Feb. 12, 2009.|
|Next to the park is a rocky beach we like to take a walk on. Each time I've been here I've noticed fish jumping out of this pool into the ocean. We found out they are blennys, and sure enough I saw them again. I did manage to catch one in this picture but you'll probably have to take my word for it. The fish looks like a grey spot near the top of the left side of the vee shape between the pool and the ocean. (I know this because I took another picture right after this one from the same spot.)
We had a scenic drive home after a stop in Kona at the bead store. Kathy's driver was very patient, her being the birthday girl.
|Here we are at Tommy Bahama's for Happy Hour. Good drinks and food. We're back home around 6:00, and we saved room for birthday cheesecake.
(You'll notice I'm able to post this without slurring my words too badly.)
|Great evening to be out on the lanai. Kathy has made a wish and is getting ready to blow out the candles on her piece of lillikoi cheesecake.|
