Yesterday, we drove down to Kailua-Kona, a beach-side town about 40 minutes away from where we’re staying. As soon as we arrived in town, I could see the crowds of people on the sides of the street along the water watching, photographing, and videotaping all the surfers trying to catch the waves. I don’t know how to surf and I’m no expert on the tides so I don’t know if the waves were good at that time yesterday because of the tide or if the waves were better since the tropical storm/hurricane had just passed. Whatever the reason, it was fun (and windy) to relax for a little while and watch.
After some more sightseeing it was time to head back and get ready for dinner. Dinner was at Roy’s Waikoloa. There are Roy’s locations in only a few states, but it originated in Hawaii and is a fusion restaurant. The website describes it as “Internationally influenced, Hawaii inspired”. As mentioned in a previous post, a future food post will be coming soon!
A closer look at the textures of the fabrics I was wearing and of my earrings (they are old and I can’t remember where I got them, but they are cute and inexpensive).
