One of those days. Sigh. Sigh again. Everyone knows that Maui is like three time zones after the West Coast which in turn is three time zones behind the East Coast. Kongo spends so much time on the East Coast that he pretty much just keeps EST wherever he is and that includes Maui so this morning at 3 AM local he was up taking pictures of the nearly full moon and then strolled around the property getting pre-dawn and sunrise photos before doing a few conference calls and heading out to the lava fields at La Perouse Bay. He…
So Kongo got Leid as he checked into his hotel this afternoon in Maui. How did he get here? Well, the house was getting tented for termites back in San Diego and he had to go someplace for a few days while the bugs got gassed so why not Maui? It worked. So now he is spending five days in paradise before heading straight from here to Florida for more work.
Missy tries on the Chinaman’s Hat but it doesn’t fit After a week in Maui and Oahu with Mrs. Kongo and Betty, Missy the Monkey is finally coming home to San Diego this evening (just in time to hit rush hour traffic after the Monday Night Football Chargers vs. Broncos at Qualcomm Stadium!). But before she heads to the airport, Missy took a drive around Oahu to see what she could see. Above, she monkeys around posing in front of Mokol’i Island offshore of Kualoa Point in Kane’ohe Bay, commonly knows as “Chinaman’s Hat” for its likeness to the straw…
Missy, Mrs. Kongo, and Betty head for the airport for the short flight across the Maui Channel to Honolulu. As Kongo studies the picture from San Diego, he can’t help but notice that there appears to be an extra bag with Missy’s luggage. Hmmm. There must be a reasonable explanation about that ….Before leaving the Hyatt Resort and Spa in Maui, Missy plays with a few of the new friends she met during her visit.
On a day of touring about Maui, Missy visits the famous Blowhole at Nakalele Point on the western side of Hawaii. Depending on the size of the waves and the tide, the blowhole produces a powerful, geyser-like spray of water that can rise as high as 100 feet in the air.
After another high mileage walking day in Maui, traipsing up and down Kaanapali Beach, she heads to the spa for some well earned pampering. Missy is doing her best to get Betty in peak condition before her upcoming three-day walk in support of research to find a cure for breast cancer.
Missy stretches out before going on a six-mile hike with Betty (Mrs. Kongo’s good friend and travel companion) as she prepares for an upcoming 3-day walk to support breast cancer research.
