Finally got the pictures downloaded

We have been on the go since we landed a couple of days ago. I have lost all concept of time and days. I have one clock set with the east coast time but I keep forgetting to look at it. I actually do not know what day it is. I do know that it must be time for breakfast. Our breakfast reminds me of the ones in China. The buffet is huge and so good. I have found nothing that is not good so far.

Yesterday we toured the west end of the island. We went to the very end of the island and could see other islands across the ocean. It is just so breath taking here. We have not even had time to look around the hotel yet.

We landed 30 minutes early on Thursday. We got our rental car and headed to the hotel. Our jaws just fell open as we traveled down the road. We have never seen anything like this. The mountains are amazing. Yes, I rode with the top down on the convertible. Boys, you will be proud of me. I let my hair down. Of course every where you go, the top is down.

We checked in and headed to our room. We had to get refreshed and head back to the social the company was throwing for everyone. It is nice to see many faces we have not seen since we went to Jamaica. We then headed to dinner at Yum Cha. Oh, what a great meal. I got lobster and prawns and Randy got suchian beef. We will be going back there before we leave. After dinner we headed back to the room. It was only 8:30 but we were beat. Of course, I woke up at 2:00 am. I got up and called the kids before they headed off to school. Never went back to bed.

We had a business meeting, so we got up and got ready. We ate breakfast and headed to our meeting. We learned about the options for our next trip. It is either Bermuda or Cancun. I chose Bermuda. Randy wants to go back to Cancun. We will know in a couple of weeks where we will be going. If you are wondering, Randy earns these trips. The more products he buys, the more perks we get. So yes, this trip is basically free.

After the meeting, we headed out to explore. We had to be back at 7:00 to go to a company beach party. We headed west of the hotel. We actually went to the end of the island. At the end is the Polihale State Park. Now, you think about parks as being nice and a nice road to get there. Well, not this one. We were on a dirt sand road with pot holes bigger than the ones in my driveway. We made it to the beach. What a view. We could see for miles and miles. We did see some surfers going out, but the waves were not big enough. They tell us that by the end of the week, north of the hotel, the waves will be 20 foot tall. We plan to go see them. Boys you will love these.

After venturing to this park, Randy wanted to go the the "Grand Canyon of the Pacific". Which is Waimea Canyon. So up the mountain we went. Again, breath taking. And again we went to the end of the road. As you can see, the view will take your breath away. This is just some of the pictures I have taken.

I never knew an island could be so beautiful and so clean. Oh, we did go to Walmart. Yes, it is just like our Walmart. They do have some different things, but basically the same. We have many things to do before we leave. Today, Randy is playing golf at the Grand Slam golf course. It is a PGA golf course. This was one of his perks from the company. I get a 80 minute massage tomorrow as my perk. I am counting the minutes until then. We may just stay around the hotel today and explore it. There is so much to do and see. The pools are open 24 hours a day. There are pools everywhere you look.

Well, I am getting hungry. Headed to breakfast. I will try to put pictures up quicker this time. Had to buy a card reader because mine went out on the computer. But we are back in business now. Hope you enjoy the pictures and the view we are seeing. We are having a great time and it is just day 2.
