Recently we had the absolute pleasure of having our daughter, Kaitlin, and her husband, Adam come visit us in Kona. This was the first time we had seen each other for 18 months due to the COVID restrictions, so it was a little emotional at the airport.
We spent two weeks together relaxing, heading out on adventures and enjoying island life. Our outings included a couple of kayak paddles, a snorkeling adventure, a visit to the Volcano National Park to view the Kilauea caldera, and a hike to Kiholo to check out the honu (green sea turtles).
A short stay at a beach resort was also in order, in addition to a significant amount of time in the pool at the house.
We were also lucky enough to get reservations to see Brother Noland at Don’s Mai Tai Bar, where the original mai tai was invented.
It was also special as Kate and Adam were with us for Father’s Day. Last year, Kate had gifted me a subscription to Storyworth, so after answering one question relating to my life each week since, it was time to receive and review the subsequent book. It came out looking very nice, and I hope the stories are somewhat interesting 🙂
All in all, it was a very special time and we enjoyed the visit very much.
