Greetings from the Big Island! We threw a trip together in, oh, 24 hours or less. First visit to the Mauna Kea, which we’ve heard great things about and so far, we are fans! Possibly the nicest stretch of beach we’ve seen in the islands.
We’ve quickly discovered that things are Bird Perfect here – just a few hours after we arrived yesterday, we came face to face with a wild turkey. And there is a lovely pair of macaws here, as well.
And just to make us feel like we’re right at home, a kitty turned up at the breakfast table. Victoria gave him a saucer of cream. We thought the waiter would be angry, but he actually came over and whispered to us that Mr. Cat prefers salmon to anything else on the menu.
Don’t be jealous of us for the 80 degree temps and sunshine – it’s actually very hard work being here!
