It’s another sunny, hot day in Wialea today.
As expected, my few hours in the sun erupted into a sunburn. It’ s not painful, except for the top of my feet, but I know I’m gonna lose some skin in a few days. But I ain’t gonna let that bother me.
According to Google Earth, it’s only a couple of kilometres (or about 160000 inches) to the Palms at Wailea from my hotel. I checked the map so I knew where I was going and off I went for a walk. Chelsea and Jonathan were supposed to be here already, and if they were at home I was hoping for a short visit. Audie and Lois and family were going to arrive sometime today too.
I got to the Palms a lot sooner than I expected. I arrived at an intersection I wasn’t really expecting, and my first thought was “Now where the hell am I?” I looked for a street sign (as if that was going to help) and there it was! The Palms at Wailea. Just across the street.
I called Jonathan’s cell, and demanded a beer. More importantly, I wanted to know how to find them. A few minutes later I was sitting on their deck.
Audie and Lois were already in town. They had gone to the airport to pick up more people, and would be back later. I finished my beer, and as nice as the grounds at the Palms were, I wanted to move on. I’m not much for hanging around hotels or wasting time at a pool when there’s an ocean a few blocks away.
I got directions to the beach (I could see I needed a car soon) and headed out.
