|Valley of the Temples - what a beautiful place|
That's definitely a transition for a couple of old retired folks, but we are managing it.
Plus, we are still finding time to explore Oahu.
Our latest find - the Byodo-In Temple.
The temple is located in the Valley of the Temples Memorial Park surrounded by the massive Ko'olau Mountains and it is amazing.
|Lots of Koi|
We rang the big gong and wandered around - the scenery is amazing and very serene.
|Enjoying Lanikai Beach|
Lanikai Beach is beautiful and very popular on the weekends. We are going to stay longer next time - lots to explore.
Plus, you have to visit the Kailua Town Pub - great food and a big draft beer selection - Doug's favorites.
|Easter dinner at the dock|
Our evenings are usually spent relaxing on the dock with our boat buddies - always entertaining and usually someone brings some good eats. We definitely found a wonderful home here in Hawaii.
|Ryan playing in the pool|
If you are looking for a solution for cleaning your dirty sails, Ryan has an excellent idea - soaking them in the wading pool. It works!
|Almost ready to varnish|
In my spare time, I have been tackling our forward head - which really needs varnished. So far, it is going well. Next job - the galley - yikes.
I am experimenting with a new varnish that dries to the touch in less than 60 minutes. When you are putting on 7 coats (both sides) that is a big plus.
|Can't get enough of these|
We are missing the islands of the South Pacific and the adventure, but know we will be back there soon.
For now, we are enjoying life in Hawaii - who wouldn't? Come and see us sometime!
