Kona is still da bomb



Terry and I went to Hawaii for a week in winter, 2013 about two years ago. Here is my late-breaking photo essay on such:

This is us watching a sunset at a public beach in Kona, near a government energy facility. Terry has a thing about watching the exact moment of sunset and I generally messed it up for us. But this time we made it.

This one is of Terry shot by me at a beach that was very near where my parents owned a little condo when I was in high school. The water was too choppy to wade in. Mostly we drove around the island and shopped and ate. I guess that makes us middle-aged. Terry did make some art at a center called Donkey Mill. I learned to love Kona Beer, and was finding it locally for a while. I am also jonesing about that print in a gallery above Kona, the one near the uke workshop; that the print said something about “on the terrace, on a lamp, one word: harmony”. It’s about $4,000 for the print, a little more than my budget, but it is working on me.

To be honest, we could not really afford the Hawaii trip.
