Kailua-Kona Hawaii


Now why would a couple of newly minted vagabonds choose to begin their nomadic lifestyle in Hawaii, you might wonder.

Royal Kona Resort
I have told people that it is because Steff said that if we were going to be homeless, it might as well be in Hawaii.  The truth is that because the Airstream will not be delivered until late February, combined with sufficient miles on our United credit card, allowed us to begin this little adventure of ours in this state made up of a series of islands.

It is fortunate in a way, because the logistics of getting AIROSMITH to the islands are implausible, if not outright impossible.  So, we will enjoy the opportunities that present themselves.  We plan on visiting good friends and former neighbors, and a warrior princess!  All of which brought us to the Big Island.  We will also take the opportunity to visit the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park as well.  We are really looking forward to our time here.

While we won't be able to settle into our little aluminum tube yet, the Royal Kona Resort, a bed and breakfast or two, and the good will of friends will have to do.

After picking up our rental car this morning, we drove north along the coast to the Kekaha Sate Beach.  We walked in the sand and soaked up the sun, and only thought a little bit about Boulder's 5" of snow, and a forecast low of -3.

It was interesting that we began our several weeks here, on the 75th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor.   So much to think about, and how much has changed, and how much things have stayed the same.  Time will tell if that is a good thing or a bad thing.
