It started raining last night when we were in bed sleeping. It's the first rain we've had on our trip. We've been really lucky. If it had rained yesterday morning, we would not have gotten to go on the trike trip. It rained on and off all morning, but by 10:00 it had stopped. Dave's blisters are looking like they hurt him so we are thinking he might have to call our doctor to see if he would call in a prescription for anti-biotic. First, we're going try getting some disinfectant and bandages to see if we can clear up his infection. Right now his feet hurt too much for him to walk. It's kind of limiting was on what we can do.

I left Dave at the coffee shop so he could google on the Internet while I went shopping in Kapaa. There are a lot of small little Hawaiiana shops in Kapaa with some nice things, but I have enough Hawaiiana and I didn't see anything that really jumped out at me. So, I didn't buy anything. Just looked.

Later, we went to the Coconut Marketplace, but it was more of the same. We watched a hula show put on by the local girls from the hula school. They made me realize how hard it can be to do some of those dances. There is so much to remember and a lot of timing with the Mauri dances. It was a lot of fun to watch them. They really study hard to stay in the hula school. I was impressed.

We found this new type of bandage designed specifically for blisters on feet that is medicated and has a gel type bandage you put over the opened blister. We hope this is going to take care of Dave's feet. My sun burn is starting to feel better so I should be good to do whatever we decide tomorrow. I guess that will depend on the weather and Dave's feet.

I took pictures of some of the plants at the cottage. Those are the only pictures I have to share today.

Sunburns and blisters, oh my!
That's sad. But still! You get nice warm sun and lots of beautiful gardens...
