A Little Down Time

Sometimes, we all need a little down time.

It is so easy to do in Kona. Yesterday, my husband and I packed up a picnic lunch and headed to the water. We found a shady place with a picnic table under a tree in Kailua Park Old Airport. There was a lovely breeze as we ate our sandwiches. Then we sat in our beach chairs and read, watched the ocean and saw a few whales. My over-worked hubby even dozed a bit. 

There were some birthday parties going on under several pavilions, so we got to enjoy the running and laughter of the children. The local children, having grown-up with lava and sand, were very sure-footed as they laugheImage titled and chased each other. Several even climbed the  lava mound. 

I thought of how my three daughters had played while they were children. Now, they are adults living in New England having experienced a snow blizzard a few days ago and hunkering down for another tomorrow.

My husband and I love the Paradise that is Kona. And we are grateful for the very relaxing two-and-a-half hours where we sat under a shade tree watching for whales and enjoying the 80 degreetemperature.
