Made it back to the mainland and all settled in. Finally got all my paperwork and grocery restocking done. It was a joy going to Costco and finding anything and everything I wanted, ha-ha. Usually I detest grocery shopping, but after being on Molokai I sure likied being at Costco:). I can find the things that I need on Molokai at the local grocery stores, but ohhhhhhh the choices to be had back here! Also filled up the car with gas and it was only $3.89 a gallon as opposed to $5.39 a gallon back on Molokai......but hey, that's the price of being in paradise and I sure would rather be warming my bones on Molokai during the winter than on freezing my okule off here on the mainland!
We had good flights home. We took Island Air from MKK to HNL and the flight was right on schedule. From HNL we took Alaska Air from to Seattle, a good trip and even arrived a half an hour earlier than scheduled. Grabbed some shuteye at the Ramada Inn at Seatac and then went to airport the next morning for our direct flight to BOS. Again, the flight was good and we arrived a half an hour earlier than scheduled.
We came home to beautiful weather for sure! It was sunny and in the seventies. We were delighted to see our yard was not a horrific mess like last year and the terrible winter that they had back here. The flowering trees were in bloom and it is lovely down here in the woods. Our herds of deer had a field day with a lot of the shrubbery while we were gone, all green stripped off and nothing but bare sticks, ha-ha, but the green is coming back on the stubbly sticks :)!
So aloha to all and thanks for all the well wishes before we departed. Waving to SW and Nick from back on the east coast!
