Hapuna Golf

We got up this morning and got dressed to play golf before heading over for breakfast.  Since we can’t park any where near our Hale we had to carry our clubs to the car first.  Then is was over to Hale Muana for breakfast. 


We got another great seat for breakfast and this time we were seated at the table next to Ricky Lee Jones.  She wouldn’t make eye contact with anyone.  We weren’t going to say anything to her, god forbid.  I just think that is a crummy way to live.  I can’t imagine there are many people here who would recognize her and even fewer who might say anything to her.  And I only know that one song.  Oh well.


After breakfast we headed out to Hapuna golf course up by Moana Kea.  We got there a little after 8:00 even though our tee time was for 10:30.  We figured they just might get us out early if we were there early.  We were right.  We had just enough time to his a small bucket of balls and practice a little putting before they told us that we were up.  We even got to play as a twosome.  Yay


The golf course is built on the side of a mountain and the first 5 or 6 holes are all uphill.  Oh my god.  And it was hot and humid without a breeze to be found.  I played terribly, but had fun doing it.  Once we got to the top the holes coming down were much nicer to play.  The course was in great shape and we had fun playing there.  Once we were done we went in pro shop and bought a new golf shirt for Brad and a windbreaker type jacket for me.  Oh it was hard trying on that windbreaker when I was so hot and sweaty but I knew that was what I wanted as a souvenir from Hapuna.


After our game at Hapuna we decided to go check out the Moana Kea  hotel.  We had fond memories of the hotel from the times we stayed at the Moana Kea Villas when the girls were really young.  The hotel looks pretty much the same except for the pool area which is much better than it was.  We decided to have lunch at the beachside restaurant.  It was delicious.  After lunch we drove around the villas and tried to remember which ones we had rented.  They don’t look like they have aged.


Then it was back to our hale.  By the time we got back we couldn’t wait to put on our swimsuits.  OMG.  I was so hot and sweaty.  Today has been a day without a breeze.  As soon and we got our suits on we headed out to the beach and into the ocean.  Then we relaxed for a while and read.  But the bugs were out and we decided to go and sit on our porch.


We were reading when all of a sudden Brad said, “sunset” and we jumped up and ran to the beach just in time to see the last half of the sun go down.  It was beautiful, but no green flash. 


We have been sitting around our hale after that and are now getting ready to walk over to the Four Seasons for a bite to eat.


Until Later…
