WFR Recertification

The weekend of June 1,2,3 Jon did his Wilderness First Responder recertification course in the Marin Headlands.


Big Island, Hawaii
Tues, June 5 – Hop on the jet bus in the morning and arrive in Kona at noon. Jon opted for a Mustang for his fantasy Hawaiian vacation. Can you say 5-0?


We took it easy with lunch at the resort and a walk around the property to see the changes. Although we are staying in the exact same room as 12 years ago, a pool now sits outside our balcony- adults only. Dinner at Roys and early to bed.

Wed, June 6 – Beautiful morning, great coffee, relaxing and reading.



After a tennis clinic, we go for an early lunch at the home owners grill. Here Jon has his first Mai Tai on the trip. We follow lunch with a competitive match of singles before Jon heads off to his massage.


June 7 and 8 – Thur/Fri.

Its all becoming a blur. Relaxation, food, sun, water, etc. We get up early and walk over to the Trading Post to pick up coffee and bagel/muffin for breakfast. Rest before tennis then clinic and singles challenge to get our exercise in for the day. Back for a shower and more reading and hanging out. Lunch and back to the pool. Shower and then dinner. What a day.

In between there is time for a massage, cocktails courtesy of the Four Seasons Management and walks along the beach. On Wed we ventured down the coast to Keauhou for dinner sharing our sushi with a boisterous wedding party.

Friday, we drove up to the North Kohala Shore until the road dead-ends at the Pololu Lookout. There is a great view of the Pololu Valley and the shoreline. In the midst of a summer shower we motored with the top down in the convertible on to Waimea. There we enjoyed dinner at Merriman”s before heading back to the resort.
June 8-9, Sat and Sun
We took a few pictures of our room and its view.

There is a nice walk south fronting on the golf course and some of the residences.

Gavin Newsom

Care Audi S4

In mid June, Care traded in her trusty 1999 Audi A4 for a new S4 with lots of new electronics to learn.  Buggi has not gotten used to the new car smell.
