Rusty here again 🙂 Friday morning we walked to delicous acai bows full of peanut butter and granola at Little Fish coffee house. It was amazing. Tara had suggested it the night before and Carlie responded with the most enthusiastic “OK!!!” that I’ve ever heard! The walk and talk was excellent, lots of talk about religion and life on the way back. Car and I talked and Tara talked with Nat and Michael.
We had finished our shave ice just as Landon and Jhena and my parents got there. Landon had a big full shave ice and the kids had none. So, they crowded around him begging for bites. He would catapult it into their mouths which had some very funny results. He let them try it on him once and he got a face full of shave ice. There was another cat Blake befriended but then Halle was mad at the cat because they watched it kill a lizard and Blake was defending the cat “circle of life” and it created some real animosity.
We were the only ones there. And the surf would just roll in forever with super shallow entry and then the waves were the HUGE kind that you had to dive under or get pummeled. We had a blast playing in the waves while the sun set.
Tara came out with me in the waves and I was just so happy to be with her, almost a little bummed when everybody joined us in the water! Nat, Michael, Dan and Car and Tara and I were all out in the ocean, But we were having so much fun – then Tara went out where she couldn’t touch and I was getting nervous and telling her to come in because I was worried about her but she knew she was okay. Landon, Jhena and Ralph and Susan stayed on the beach a little higher up the cliff to take pictures of the sunset. It was so perfect, definitely the highlight of my trip.
We walked back and as we were leaving the gardens a car pulled up and through the private gate, we thought we were busted but he just drove by. Came home and the kids had eaten hot dogs (thanks Halle again!) so we went down to the pool and had chicken and salad while the kids played in the pool.
Perfect pool night. Ralph, Jhena, and Landon couldn’t bear the thought of eating salad for dinner so they ordered from the pool grill. We swam and hot tubbed and crashed.
