Sunday morning, September 9th, found Bob and I at the Kona Inn Shopping Village once again.
We arrived at the shopping village before the stores were open. That was the plan. The only reason we drove to downtown Kona again was so that I could take a few more pictures.
I took several pictures of the cat, but I am sharing only two with you.
I spent several minutes watching wave after wave roll in at Kailua Bay.
I watched several crabs crawling all over the rocks that kept getting washed over by the surf.
We decided it was time to go, when we saw chairs being placed in the lawn for the morning church service. What a view, though, for a church service!
If you have read my blog posts from the beginning about our Hawaiian vacation, you will recall that several days ago a pair of Kalij Pheasants visited John and Dorothy’s yard.
Around noon on September 9th the pair made a return visit. I captured a photograph of the Male Kalij Pheasant.
Don’t the two Kalij Pheasants make a cute couple?
We relaxed at home until around 4:00 pm, at which time Dorothy, John, Bob and I went to Honokohau Harbor in Kona.
John has a fishing boat that is approximately 25 feet long.
John launches his boat from Honokohau Harbor. He had planned to take us all out on the boat for a fishing trip. That plan didn’t materialize for a couple reasons. John had taken the boat out of the water before Hurricane Lane blew over the Island of Hawaii. He had not put the boat back in the water by the time we arrived. John would have put the boat back in the water; however, he wasn’t feeling 100% during our visit. Before our arrival one of John’s toes got infected, and he was prescribed an antibiotic. The antibiotic caused an upset stomach. John missed out on a few of our sightseeing jaunts because he wasn’t feeling well.
We went to Honokohau Harbor to go to the Harbor House Restaurant, where we enjoyed cold beverages and snacks (French fries, onion rings and cheese poppers).
We learned during our first trip to Hawaii that you come to this restaurant for a schooner.
After we had enjoyed our refreshments, Dorothy and I walked to the Kaloko-Honokohau National Historical Park beach. John and Bob stayed at Harbor House Restaurant for another round.
We were still on the harbor grounds, when we saw a chicken.
Dorothy had hoped to show me green sea turtles. The tide was in higher than she had ever seen. We didn’t see any turtles.
We turned around and walked back to the Harbor House Restaurant.
We collected the boys at the restaurant and returned home.
At sunset we watched as the sun slipped into the ocean.
