aloha ipo

{hello lover}
i've always felt that hawaii is my lover.
the mountains, the beach, the desert, the rainforest + perfect weather = love.

we flew into kona, got a rental car, dropped our bags off at the hotel and left immediately to wander around.
kona is awesome. it's little, cute & you can walk to everything.
i loved it immediately.

it was sort of late when we got there (and we weren't used to the time difference) so we wandered around for a bit ...

kona kitty
this kitten wasn't too sure what to think of us.

we watched the sun set...

and then headed over to this sweet spot for some dinner.

crabcakes for charlie (please notice his fruity drink in the background)
crabcakes .... not quite like MD

and fish tacos for me. they were amazing.
fish tacos ..yum!

after dinner (at 7 pm) we went back to our hotel, where we slept for 12 hours with the windows open. it's worth coming to hawaii just to get some sleep like that.

Is the place where you had dinner on Ali'i Drive? It looks like where they run towards the finish in the Ironman World Championships- I had a friend who covered them this year and that looks like the place where she camped out :)

I'm seriously so jealous. Maybe one day I'll qualify for Kona, or date someone who qualifies and I can make a visit :)
