I arrived in Hawai'i late Thursday night, and spent yesterday acclimating, swimming, and reading by the pool. We are at our apartment in Kona and it is beautiful! We went out to a super nice dinner last night at the Kona Inn, a historical restaurant on the water which I would highly recommend as a special treat if you are ever in town (and preferably if someone else is buying!) I am so happy to be here and can't wait to soak up some more sun and just relax!
Living in Colorado I have already forgotten what it sounds like falling asleep to the sound of crashing waves. I do have to admit, my first night here I was pretty convinced there was about to be a tidal wave! I kept on hearing that suction sound they say comes before it, but it was just the waves going back out over the rocks in the bay here. I grew up listening to the ocean falling asleep in New Jersey, so I can't believe that is something I would be afraid of at night. I am going to blame it on the jet lag, because this past night it was just peaceful.
Dress: Boutique in NYC
Sandals: Borrowed from mom!
Fringe Necklace: Made by me
(wow- this section is so much easier when you don't have to wear so many jackets and layer!)
Anyway, off to drink some Kona coffee and perhaps go on a quick morning run (and by run I probably mean walk...downstairs to the pool). I can't wait to share my adventures with you guys, and will try my hardest to keep up with consistent updates!
Hawaiian Word of the Day:
ALOHA: the most common word you will hear here has many meanings, the most common being hello, goodbye, and referring to love and affection:
I am going to try to use at least one Hawaiian word in every post while I am here!
