Where were we? Oh yes.
We left the Pu’uhonua o Honaunau and headed into Kona. She assumed that I knew the island, so I was leading the way. Parking was a mess but we navigated it fine.
We tried to get a table at Huggos, a fine dining restaurant right on the water, but they only had a waiting list. Therefore we crossed the street and ate at Bongo Ben’s, a bistro / bar type place with a great view of the ocean and the sunset. We both wanted fresh fish, what with being in Hawaii and all. So that is what we ordered – Ono and Ahi.
We got to know each other a little better, and I purchased most of dinner, along with buying her a lei (flower). Later I found out it was her birthday, and she really enjoyed it.
The sunset was not much to write home about, but hey, we were in Hawaii! So we had to watch it.
We planned to meet for a hike the next day and then she headed east toward Hilo and I north toward Hawi.
I was pleased for a bit of a magical day.
