Fish Out of Water

Musings and observations about life from an East Coast native now living on the Left Coast in the California State Capitol since 2004. This fish has made her home in Madison, WI (7 years); Portland, OR (2 years); Las Vegas, NV (7 months); Middlebury, VT (3 summers); Marne-la-Vallee, a small town east of Paris, France (6 months); Middletown, CT (3 years); and Marshfield, MA, the fish's coastal hometown 40 miles south of Boston (17 years).

Location: Sacramento, California, United States


Oahu Trip (Days 6 & 7) -- End of Trip!

Day 6: Monday, March 20 & Day 7: Tuesday, March 21
Diamond Head + Work + Shopping & Return Home
I did my favorite YouTube hatha flow video in the hotel room before Mr. E and I headed off on our jog/walk towards Diamond Head. Great views as always, and we were appreciative of the cloud cover to help keep the temperatures down and the sun exposure lower

We took the return route round the other side of the crater and fueled up with food and coffee at the Starbucks near Kapiolani Park afterwards.

Both of us needed to do some work today, so we brought our laptops down to the lovely open-air lobby to work for several hours. Much nicer than the usual office environment! We then completed a few more souvenir purchases and settled in at Moana Terrace for Happy Hour drinks and snacks and a game of Rummy 500 (Mr. E eventually won a few days later once we finished the game!). Dinner was at the Royal Hawai'ian Food Court again, where I had an excellent yakitori and Mr. E opted for the familiar and satisfying Panda Express.

On the way back to the hotel, we stopped by Honolulu Coffee for some [pricier-than-Mr. E-expected] kona coffee beans to bring back to the mainland. The evening finished up with packing and TV in the room.

The next morning, I did a final 40 minute swim and then some YouTube yoga on the pool deck. We used our final breakfast voucher for the buffet, and Mr. E procured his own honu necklace. Then we were off to the airport, with no first-class upgrade this time. Darn! Our flights were on time, and we spent the long (2.5 hour) layover in SFO at the wine bar. We finally got home to the kitties just after midnight and were both welcomed and scolded by the fur babies.

Another great trip. Aloha!
