Default I miss the Big island

*sigh* its been a while since i've last been there and i really miss it.

Was staying in Kohala last time i went. Had the best relaxing time there.

I gotta get back there soon. I'm driving myself insane here.

vog is supposed to be bad this week. we're seeing some of it here.

hope it's nice in july when we go back for family reunion. vog makes my allergies go nuts and my wife is allergic to sulfur, so we can't go hiking at volcano if it's bad.

my son really wants to check out the lava tubes, so i might just mask us up and go anyway if it's not at dangerous, stay indoors levels.

The island of Hawaii is cool. I liked it there too. I wished I stayed long enough to actually make it out to a nice beach and/ or surf spot. I've just been 'visiting' during my trips for work (usually fly in in the morn, and fly out in the afternoon, otherwise it's an overnighter). I enjoy the overnighters because I get to spent a little time going out, sometimes even catch a movie.

hmm. never tried to catch a movie there, not since small kid time (like over 30 years ago). lots of stuff to do, so it just never occurred to me to try and catch a movie or shop, etc...

usually we're at the beach fishing, eating with the family (i like to visit some of the old diners my dad used to take me to when he was still alive), or just visiting family.

i wanna try and take my son to the indoor tennis stadium (he likes tennis too). i used to play there all the time when i used to travel for tournaments, etc...

my cousin will be staying at KMC this summer for the family reunion, so we may try and visit when we go past there to the volcano. if the vog forecast isn't too bad, we may try and spend a night at that inn up at the volcano.

are we going to get hit with the hotel room tax because we are technically "tourists" since we're not from the Big Island?

ah, cool.

that's what my wife figured, but i wasn't sure.

that's good to know - i'm hoping to extend our trip for a day or two so we can go play tourist, or maybe go over to kona side and visit my cousins on that side.
