While she surfed, I met up with Leona and her new husband Duke. Poor things did the drive to Hana yesterday and I'm surprised they didn't break up after such a stressful drive! well at least they survived =) I would never, ever even think of doing that drive on anything larger than a SmartCar! We chatted and caught up, as we hadn't spoken in about 10 years.
After lunch they left to go beach hunting and I waited for Joyce to finish her surf lesson. She came back with the biggest smile and would soon feel the soreness for the rest of the week. She loved Sharky though and wanted to take another lesson with him. It seems as if the recession has hit Maui pretty hard and Sharky seemed a bit eager for more customers. Considering how high the cost of living is in Maui, I don't blame him one bit. I sincerely don't understand how people can live in Hawaii on the average incomes that are earned. I saw a listing on craigslist and I think the average management job there makes something like $1800 a month. What the hell?!?!
