Path to the beach
Today we didn't do very much..... We walked downtown in Kailua-Kona.. and visited a great beach.
Kailua-Kona is a darling town. It has cute little surfer shops and has managed to retain their small town image and feel dispite the number of tourists hitting the town..... We didn't feel hurried and just strolled along the walks chatting and looking. The shops carried things that were the same but different.... They are tropical themes but different items and quality. I love Hawaiian shirts and bought 3!
I enjoyed the art shops. It is amazing that people can paint and make it look like a photograph... the attention to detail is incredible. David and I particularly liked one artist's works in a little room. I thought we were about to invest in it... then I discovered he loved the almost black and white picture of a moonlit island scene and I loved a daylight jungle flower scene. Differences like this cannot be negotiated. We both loved what we loved and moved on... We both enjoyed the fish in the water scenes but it wouldn't really fit our house.... some of them were tens of thousands of dollars. So they were also really out of our price range too.... unless we wanted to get a second on our house.........
