... snorkeling. We decide to get our gear on and try the snorkeling, but realise we can lock the car up, but cannot take the keys with us. Dianne approaches a family group who look pretty settled, with a tent and deck chairs, and they agree to look after the keys.
We enter the water at a small beach between lava rock outcrops, find it pretty chilly, but it improves to bearable. There isn't a lot of fish life, but there are small numbers of a fairly wide ...

* Another big thanks to the MEO driver for the ride. She could have easily declined and made me walk.
* As I sat endlessly on the beach, I remembered a horribly hilarious thing a former friend used to say: "I wonder what the poor people are doing?". I know. It's awful.
* Never believe or trust a disgruntled ex-employee.
* Sadly, the nicest people I met on Lana'i were the three-hour daily tourists.

I am spending a week on a different Hawaiian Island. This island is veeeeery different. It's remote, rural and undeveloped. Internet is harder to find and everything cool to see is hard to travel to. The vibe is very laid back and quiet, which I wasn't sure I would enjoy as much but the scenery has made up for it.

Great place to stay with close access to beaches and variety of cuisines.There are a regular batch of green sea turtles that visit the condo cove - great to just relax and watch them. Lodging is quite good with well furnished and maintained units. Value for price is much better than any of the nearby resorts.
