A young couple who were borrowing my house picked me up at the airport in my very clean car (they cleaned it!) and then wanted to take me to dinner. We drove about 20 minutes to a really cute place in Haiku ... and it was CLOSED. And the next three restaurants we tried were closed!! Erin called our next choice who said they were supposed to close at 6pm but if we got there by 6:15 they would serve. We made it. Da Kitchen in Kahulua rocks!
After I dropped them off at the airport to return to Portland, the drive to my Maui Mansion was tear filled. This would be so much more fun WITH Mr. Ralph. It just seems like everything (and anything?) would be so much better WITH him. The fun would be twice as fun ... and the bad just half as bad.
My fun neighbors with their three great kids were having a little fireworks party outside in their driveway. I went over for a few minutes, got lots of hugs then took my bedraggled body inside to have some Prosecco. Believe it or not I made it til midnight ... Maui time.
Let's see how this vacation continues ...
