I also picked up some panko crusted ahi and rice for lunch, and a large order of kalua pork for dinner.
I couldn't decide so I had a combo of pineapple, blueberry, grape, green apple and cherry. Sweet, cool and refreshing!

While we were there I also signed up to be a volunteer one day a week. They need help with taking care of the plants, and keeping the park clean, as well as answering questions of the tourists at the visitor center. I don't think I'm ready for that last one yet.

Note: I cut the photo too close and lost the writing on the last line. Also, my character didn't mention that her sister was sketching with her.

April 5 - Easter
"I went to the sunrise service at the Punchbowl National Cemetery - an ecumenical service with representatives from several churches on the island. Very moving. A little boy beside me gave me an origami bunny that he made himself. He reminded me of my grandchildren who I am missing today."
"Wow! What a wonderful surprise awaited me this morning. On my walk I found three turtles - honu - sunning themselves on the beach. Good thing that I had my sketch kit with me."

I'm so jetlagged! I did a small grocery run and came back with a couple of Maui Gold pineapples. I'm told that they are the best. So sweet!
I also picked up a pair of flip-flops. I always forget to pack those. Looking forward to a swim after lunch.

"I can't believe I'm here after a long flight, and looking at the view from the window of my own beach house!"
"Sounds wonderful, doesn't it - my OWN BEACH HOUSE!!
I'm using a Strathmore watercolor sketchbook, because it has 15 sheets, so both sides will be perfect for 30 days. My "character" uses watercolor pencil and a water brush.
