Yes, we have some cabanas.

Take my word for it – it’s nothing but work, work, work here in these Hawaiian isles.

For instance, the CE is up at dawn every day to snag prime beach chairs for us.

Then there’s the walk – there’s a nice little path that goes all the way from the Fairmont Kea Lani at one end past the Marriott on the other end.

And, of course, every single day we have to decide where to eat dinner. Will it be Spago or Ferraro’s?

And the ever-present decision, beach or pool?

Two of the specks in the water are Taylor and Easton on their boogie boards

There are medical emergencies:

Easton inadvertently made the acquaintance of a stray jellyfish tentacle

And there are field trips:

The boys went on a snorkeling adventure over to Molokini

There are explorations to the other resorts:

And wildlife sightings:

We encountered this very friendly pretzel-loving spotted dove (Streptopelia chinensis)

Speaking of doves, the German word for dove is taub. And guess who sat next to us at breakfast several days in a row – none other than Peter Jacobson, who plays Taub on House. We think he’s following us, since we also saw him recently in a crosswalk in NYC.

He was much more tan when we saw him here.

We try to keep up with the local culture:

Children are apparently encouraged to run after the torchlighter at sunset. Taylor and Easton declined to participate.

And, of course, there’s time to spend together, too.

Are you feeling sorry for us yet?

Gotta run…the CE can’t hold down those cabana seats much longer all by himself.

Aloha!

    If you’d written that you’d seen Hugh Laurie of House I would have been 100% convinced that you’re hallucinating this paradise. Now I’m only 95% convinced that this all an elaborate dream of yours, scripted from a chicken-poop covered wrought-iron chair in the foggy confines of a Santa Barbara patio, created to drive us all mad with envy. (Nice touch throwing in the jellyfish sting to confuse us. But I’m still on to you!)

    Now I understand why you want to come to Paris – there aren’t any jellyfish here! And nope, I’m not feeling sorry for you, not the slightest bit. 😉

    (BTW – “yes we have some cabanas” is up there as one of my favorite headings yet.)
