As we greet another active and sun-filled day
We head north to engage in frolic and play
We visit Elsie in Kapaa
Aquire Ono Burgers to gnaw
and end our visit in a land called Hanalei

We celebrated our first week on the Island by heading north again, this time to visit Elsie in Kapaa. We had a leisurley breakfast and then drove up by 11:00 to Elsie's and visited for about an hour. About 6 weeks ago she got knocked down by a car that was backing up and broke an arm and was seriously bruised and just now had recovered. She filled our truck with fresh oranges from her tree and we vowed a return visit to off-load our extra food before we leave next week. An item on our to-do list was to eat at Ono Burger at Anahola so we stopped in for lunch. The burgers were as good as advertised so we went down to Anini Beach to digest and enjoy the view. Dianna got to stick her toes in the water before we headed to the Kiluaeu Lighthouse. Eula got a ride up to the viewing area and we enjoyed some beautiful views and whale action.

We headed in to Hanalei for Doug & Sandy McMaster's Slack-Key guitar concert at 4:00 PM and enjoyed a wonderful relaxing concert. Eula won a lei in the raffle but was allergic to the flowers so she passed it on to Dianna. Doug and Sandy are trying to put togeter a Mainland tour so we offered them a place in Portland if they make the trip come to fruition. Shopping stops at Walmart, Costco, and Big Save for milk, a roasted chicken, gas and other staples preceded a late dinner. Cards and then bed – no big plans for Saturday so we can rest....
