Last night in Hawai'i

We flew in and out of Kona, so we returned to Kona for the last two days of our trip. Our last night, we stayed in the Kona Tiki, which is located on Alii Drive. We thought it was very inexpensive. There is no television, phone or AC. But, you are right on the ocean. You are right on the sea wall. The sea water splashes over the side of the sea wall into the pool. my view from the bed

Japanese style sliding door opens to the lanai. We slept with it open with the sound of the waves crashing and the ocean breeze sweeping over us. Perfect for our last night. this close to the sea wall from the lanai

Our last day in Kona we decided to spend it each in our own way. Doug went snorkeling and I walked Alii Drive and visited a lot of shops. I walked a very long distance- all the way to the bay at the far end of Alii. We met for breakfast and lunch and then went to watch the sun set. this shot is my screen saver We were not flying out until 10 p.m., so we went to eat dinner and then sat and had a couple of drinks while watching the Olympics and listening to a local band. Going to Hawai'i, it was difficult for me to imagine putting on shorts, sandals and tank tops. Then coming back, it was difficult to pull on socks and shoes and my bluejeans. I didn't change until just before leaving for the airport. I felt sad to leave Hawai'i and told the ocean "good-bye." Now, ever so often Doug says "so, when do you want to go back?"

You went on the nicest trip and it seems like you really watched the money. That last hotel right on the ocean was so cool.

I think it will be a trip to remember.

You made some serious memories there Pam. Thanks so much for sharing some of them with us..
The places you stayed were all awesome, even the beach campground. You must have done tons of research before planning this trip! You got a lot of bang out of your buck, that's for sure.
