Hawaii 5 Ohhhhhh!
A couple weeks ago, the Captain and I went to breakfast to “send off” or wish a “fond farewell” two dear friends of ours.
Yes, they were going on a Bon Voyage to Hawaii.
However, not your usual Bon Voyage…these two sweet and wonderful people were moving back to Paradise from Paradise.
Let me explain….
Originally, they hailed from Oregon and went on a vacation to Hawaii, fell in love with the big island of Hawaii and bought a house and settled in. They lived near Hilo raising their family, enjoying the laid back life style until they retired. They briefly moved back to the states, via Oregon and finally here in Florida…but the island kept calling them back.
In the short three years they were living in Florida…their conversation was dotted with “when we go back to Hawaii!”….and so the time came. They sold their boat and waterfront home, shipped a few furnishings and personal items, including both cars….and are on their way “home”.
We wish them all the best ….Bud and Jan, along with their two cats. Quite the travelers, these two cats, returning to the Island of their birth.
I am speaking of the cats…well, you know.:)
As I spoke in another post….we had the threats of a tropical storm….Erika, which has since dissipated.
However, our friends on the big island of Hawaii have two worrisome storms coming near them….Hurricanes Ignacio and Jimena! These storms are weakening and moving further away from the islands as the above pic shows. Such is life in the tropics.
The good news is one usually has fair warning of these storms and time to prepare….whereas tornadoes in the Midwest, where the Captain and I hail from, give no such warnings.
Missing our friends…..
