Here's where we hung out:
Mostly on the balcony. (Can you see the chocolate cookie?)
...and at the pool. Yes that's me trying to keep afloat with my noodle.
I was actually very thankful for that noodle. Some other guests left it for me. First of all I can't swim and now I have vertigo, so I thought I would not be able to get in the pool this year, but with the noodle I felt very safe.
Our condo is in full view of the sleeping giant, down by the coconut grove.
Not far away are the Opaeka'a Falls. At the end of this road is the arboretum which is presided over by...
The river was not very full on this day, but you never know when there will be a flash flood from the rain back up in the mountains. If you want to go up to the arboretum you have to cross this and since we're always driving a rental, we have never crossed it.
But it's still really nice over on this side. We often go up here, park the car and read -- and close the car windows when the showers come. I love to hear the rain on the car roof. It doesn't stay long -- just a quick shower most of the time.
