Saturday in Hawaii

Saturday was our first full day here on the Big Island and we were determined to start it out right.  Once we were able to get up.  It was funny, we woke up early then went back to sleep, then woke up, then went back to sleep, then woke up...  it was as though we didn't know what time zone to follow.  Finally we decided to get up and quickly made some Kona coffee before heading out to breakfast. 

Our stay includes breakfast every morning and I figured it would be a simple continental type breakfast.  Wong!!  I had eggs benedict, for crying out loud.  Brad had steak and eggs and an order of pancakes.  And this was all after an interesting plate of fruit.  And all outside near the water.  What a beautiful way to start the day!!  When we left we were full and knew we wouldn’t need anything until dinner, which we were going to have here at the resort.


After breakfast we took a walk to explore a part of the resort.  Although there are only 150 hales here there are 80 acres to explore.  After exploring we decided it was time to put on our swimsuits and go to the beach. 


We spent the day at the beach under a palm tree.  It was wonderful.  When we were ready to leave we headed out thinking we were going to walk down and check out the 4 Seasons when we noticed that the shipwreck bar was open.  Well, Nancy and Mike had told us we had to check that out so we stopped and sat at the bar.  Now Ben had sent me a text telling us to have a mai tai for him so we figured we needed to honor that request.  So honor it we did.  In fact, we stayed there until it was time to get ready for our dinner reservation…  Yeah, Chad is a good bartender.


At the appointed hour we went to the Hale Moana for dinner.  As we left our hale it started to rain, but Brad just ran back to the room and got an umbrella.  We got a table close to the beach and we kept our fingers crossed that it wouldn’t rain anymore.  It must have worked because we stayed dry.


Dinner was very nice and we are glad we tried it out but we will be heading off property tomorrow for dinner.


And then it was back to the room to relax and go to sleep.  A perfect first full day of vacation.  :)
