“Man never made any material as resilient as the human spirit.”  Bern Williams

We got up bright and early this morning hoping to catch the sunrise on our way down to the airport in Lihue.  Unfortunately, it was raining cats and dogs so we missed the sunset.  We did however find this really neat spot near the airport with this old pier that is mostly in ruins.  The rain stopped and the sun even came out quite briefly while we were there.  We spent some time wandering and watching the surf crashing on the levy.  Fisherman were out with rods in the surf, and turtles swam in the bay.  We finally had to pack up the camera gear and head for our flight back to the mainland.  Three and a half weeks on this Island = bliss.  We’re going home well rested and ready to take on whatever the New Year has to offer.  

Bring it on!

And . .  . today is our last day in this gorgeous paradise.

It’s been a wonderful adventure for us, with lots of new discoveries, visits to old haunts, and just plain relaxation and kickin’ it!  Tomorrow morning early we head back to San Francisco Bay area for Christmas with family.  I think I’m ready.  The only reason I could stay longer at this point is if family could join us.  That’s not possible, so we will go to them.  Because there is nothing more important to me than my family.  It will be a magical Christmas this year with our little 2 year old Grand Daughter.  How can I possibly miss that??

I can’t and I won’t!

Today was quite the day.  I received a message from my sister last night indicating that she was flying in to Vancouver.   I drove with my 2 year old Grand Daughter the 1 hour in to the city to the airport to connect with her and have a visit before she flew on to where she lives.  I checked to make sure her flight was on time . . . it landed 15 minutes late but it did land.  I called the hotel to see if she had checked in . . . they said they were expecting her.  However she never arrived.  I finally drove to a local Mall where Baby Girl and I did some window shopping, and had a bite to eat.  This photo is taken with my iPad while we were on our way back home, stopped in heavy traffic at a stop light.  It took us almost two hours to get home in heavy rain and traffic.  The amazing thing is . . . she did so well!  We sang songs, and called over bluetooth and talked with Papa G.  It was quite an enjoyable ride considering!  

Now – for the crazy part.

I arrived home in time to get her bathed and down for the night.  All the while I was worrying about why my sister had not arrived . . . it just didn’t make sense.  Did she miss her flight?  Was there an issue with the Hurricane back east?  So, I went back to the message she had sent me on the 29th and discovered . . . that I was the dunce . . . If I had read the entire message . . . it said . . . “I am leaving tomorrow (October 30th) and arriving on October 31st.”  (She was flying in from Bali via Hong Kong)  I guess I saw the word “tomorrow” and went no further!  Urg!  My Bad!!  

Oh Well . . . tomorrow is another day!
