Great swing Vern--Where is it--Oh-Oh!!There it is--The devil made me print this one Vern

  The rest of the time on the island was spent going to beaches,waterfalls,seeing sites where movies as South Pacfic-Jurassic park,The killiing fields and many others were filmed.  There is actually a tour that just takes you to areas where up to 20 movies have been filmed.  Vern and Mimi said it was interesting but was not high on our priority list so we did not see it.

  Vern fooled me and said why not play a little 9 hole course with him and Mimi--they always play at least once a year.  Name of the course is Kukuiolono and is on the south side of the island.  If someone wants to play golf in Hawaii but does not want to spend much but still be on a very nice course with great views you can not beat it.

  Cost for club rental,cart and enough balls and tees to get around 9 to 18 holes cost around 25.00 total.  A local donated the land and stated in the agreement that the course is a not for profit course--pretty expensive land for a non-profit course.  I do have some pictures of it I will include. 

  Ann and I were going to do a 8 mile round trip hike on a trail that actually goes 22 miles round trip along the NuPali coast but after going about 1/2 mile it was so slippery from rain and mud we turned back.  Could tell it would have been a beautifull trail but had steep drop-offs so was not wort it that day.

  This will be all for the 2006 trip and next entry will be the Nupali Coast on a sunset cruise in 2007 for our 47th wedding aniversity
