... Derek beside her. I was behind the pilot on the left with Larry beside me. We had the most open doors. Our van driver helped us in, gave us our headphones, and buckled our seat belts. Our pilot, Jason, took off smoothly and we were soon looking down on the airport.

Our tour took us clockwise around the island. So we flew over Lihue and Poipu where we could see the Tree Tunnel. Then we went more inland and saw mountains and fields and ...

... roasted Brussels sprouts. After cleaning up from supper we relaxed and put off eating our mango/coconut bread until later. We didn't know how much later when we went out to the pool to see the full moon. We met some people from Michigan who told us that there was a total eclipse tonight.

Uwe decided to explore the little path running from our beach to the right side and within a few minutes was back to tell me he'd found a nice little beach next door adjoining a private condo complex. It was a lovely little cove beach and even had a large rock pool fed by seawater, ideal for non swimmers and kids. We spent the day there until it started to rain (again) about 4pm. We ...

... since my travels to Latin America. I'm still not very good, but it's not really that hard. If you know how to move your hips and swing your partner all around, it's pretty easy to fake like you know what you're doing. We drank and salsa danced until the bar closed down. I don't recall exactly what happened after that, but i did wake up with a scraped up elbow and a swollen knuckle. Apparently Brendan and I engaged in some ...
