First Full Day Back In Hawaii

Aloha Everyone,

In spite of my sleeping only half of my normal hours, I felt great waking up to see the beautiful Koolau Mountains from our Ala Moana Hotel 11th floor room.

George came by promptly at 10:00 am to give us a ride to Kaiser Honolulu Clinic where J.J. and I did our lab tests.

My next appointment was with the Opthamologist. My pupils were dilated with eye drops and images were taken. Any discomfort was well worth it when result was that my eyes are healthy and I've been able to maintained a steady wellness for the past 6 years. My next eye appointment will be in 2 years.

I walked to Auntie Pasto's, one of our long-time favorite Italian restaurants located just around the corner from Kaiser, to join George and J.J. for lunch.

George is a well-read, widely-traveled, compassionate, and extraordinarily intelligent man. Our topics of conversation as jumped around from travel, to family, to government, to geo-politics, to life.

We met Jeff for an early dinner. Since Jeff had about an hour before his volleyball coaching commitment, the three of us walked to Shirokiya to have our meal.

It's 6:20 pm, a clear night with current temperature reading at 72 degrees Fahrenheit. 

Aloha -- Cathi
