24 July 2017

Everyone absolutely exhausted in the party bus ride home.

Had to stop and take a picture at the Surf Board fence. This was in Paia on our way back from the Twin Falls hike. We stopped in at the little "hippie" town.
We decided to stop my Hook a pai lookout so that Vail could see the sea turtles but none were on the beach. Instead Vail and I looked at bracelets. It was a fundraiser for a dog rescue place on the island. Vail befriended one. Needless to say we bought some bracelets.
Vail and her coconut juice.

Lighting of the torches. Every night at the resort a man will blow the conch in all four directions and light all the tiki lanterns on the property.

Hookipa lookout is where we watched kite surfers. But is also a resting area for the green sea turtle. There is a little preservation area on this beach and when we were there 92 turtles were basking in the sun.
Took a trip to the famous Mammas Fish house. What a cool little restuarant.

Happy Birthday Larry!!!
And his grandchildren who absolutely adore their Papa.
Three generations of the Ketsa men.
Love the pictures of Larry and his two sons. What a treasured memory.
Was very difficult to get a good picture since these two men where trying to make sure that they were the taller person.
Nothing like family.
I love braiding Ella's hair. She looks like a little princess
Coconut Porter.
Nothing really to say about this.
