... about 40 lbs of macadamia nuts! The next time you bite into a mac nut, say a big thank you to the farmer who made it possible! We also got a new wwoofer yesterday, Lacey, who is 19, super smart and very friendly! We all took a visit to the grocery store together today after work and grabbed a bite of dinner at the Poke place near the farm! A cool tidbit, hitch hiking is completely acceptable and legal in Hawai'i. So...today we successfully ...

We landed at 8.45 Monday Hawaiian time (4.45 Tuesday Melbourne time). We had a long walk from our gate to Immigration where we were fingerprinted and photographed.

I was attracted to the music; Roger to the Mai Tai's. We met another couple - Jack & Ruth from Lougheed, Alberta. We had some ...
... into long boring flight and couldn't sleep. OMG! First World problems, for sure. ;-) I know ... poor us! We got in at 10 p.m. local time. By the time we got our luggage, got a cab and got settled into our condo, it was 11:30 p.m. = 3:30 a.m. Regina time. As I write this, it's 4 a.m. here (8 a.m. at home). Roger is gently snoring away beside me. He's a good sleeper. Will have to get my internal clock straightened out over the next couple of ...
