The black lava below the balcony....

The room had a book that had diary entries from a lot of people who had stayed in the condo before us.    They mentioned feeding the eels in the lava area below the balcony.   We spent a lot of time after that peering into the water trying to spot them.   We decided they must be just under the overhang of the lava.   We watched in high tide and low... no eels.   We checked the date of the entries and decided it was unlikely the eels left in the last month.   We worried about kids walking on the lava during the low tides... But they didn't get attacked by savage eels....  We didn't see eels but continued to look every opportunity. 

My sister Valerie was coming to stay with us for a week.   We were really looking forward to having her come ....  We kept in contact by internet and telephone.  She got sick at the last moment and had to cancel her Sunday flight and come on Tuesday instead.   Tuesday she still felt crappy but decided to come as she wasn't (and hadn't been) throwing up and wasn't running a fever.   I assured her we would be able to enjoy the condo and sit on the balcony as she recovered.  ........  Only a few more days .......
