Today was a day to sleep until 6:30. The morning was spent snorkeling and relaxing on the beach. We saw a great variety of fish, turtles and at one point the water boiled with dolphins. a wonderful relaxing start to our day. After lunch we watched a movie...this is a good reminder of why we got rid our cable. A half decent movie dragged out by the hundreds of commercials so that we finally turned it off.
We had a groupon for a sunset cruise which was docked a short walk down the coast. We waited while they gassed up and we learned the cruise would include three crew and four guests. The other couple were Korean and on their honeymoon having married two days ago in Korea. Our captain was Adam, one helper was Matthew and the other was Kokoa or something like that.
We came out of the harbor and headed north when we sang a prayer and threw flowers in the water for a safe voyage and carried on and passed our condo anchoring at Turtle rock. No dolphins were sighted, but that is to be expected that time of day as they head to deeper water to feed. We saw a number of turtles including one that quietly snuck up behind me and sailed right under. He was covered with fish that were cleaning his shell. The water was clear and fish were plentiful.
We had a fine dinner of mahi mahi, Kailua pork wonton, salad, taro, taro chips, beef, rice and wine. But before we ate we gathered, held hands and said grace. Kokoa then got out his ukelele and sang for us. It was fun..we tried to get Matthew to dance or sing but he....had to pull up the anchor. Bel, the Korean fellow was not feeling well at all and the seas were pretty calm. The sunset was beautiful and we saw the green flash or at least we were told to say we had. LOL
Mattes gave us a lift home and we can happily say it was fun.
