We hit the beach one last time in Kailua. After a short squall, the day was beautiful and I wish we had more time to enjoy the water. Such is life, isn't it? We were blessed to be able to stay with friends rather than in temp lodging (I think 81 days on the inbound portion of our time here was enough) and it was wonderful. They are like family and I am going to miss them terribly. We'll get to see them again in about 9 months when we come back for a visit but it's not going to be the same.
I'm already scoping out properties here to buy if and when we come back. I should be looking for houses in Kansas but instead I'm looking at houses in Hawaii. Denial anyone?
Never mind. Some things have changed which may possibly shorten our time in the Sunflower State. Therefore, buying is off the table as an option. We're back to scouring Craigslist and ahrn.com. Whee. Thanks for the advice though!
We are meeting up with friends for a last supper of sorts after dropping off our luggage. One last goodbye...er, aloha...and then we're off. I'll try not to cry.
