Today was a travel day, driving to Kona from Volcano. It was a beautiful drive past coffee and macadamia plantations, lava fields and flowering trees on the ocean. . We had to find a lodging because I did not make any reservations for these last two days. There was actually not a problem finding a place. The KonaTiki was recommended by one of the ladies at Volcano Inn. It’s a cute little hotel right right out of the 50’s, just on the edge of town, very simple, no phones, no TV and the couple who run it are so nice. The ocean is right outside my lanai door. Andre and I watched the sunset from their patio/swimming pool area then walked to town for dinner. The restaurant was on the sand, dancing and music included. We loved the people watching and the fish tacos. Every night we have been lulled to sleep with different sounds, frogs in Hilo, rain in Volcano, drumming from the Kava bar in Naalehu and tonight in Kona by the crashing surf.
