If you’ve read my previous entries, you know who (or what) Buster is. Today, Buster went shopping. He got to go to the mall, KMart and Walmart, woohoo! (At least at Walmart, Buster brought home two boogie boards and a snorkel (mine broke a couple of years ago and we’ve never had the time to snorkel since.)) Buster behaved fairly well with a few exceptions. The major issue was that his air conditioning got persnickity, on—off, on—off. Finally, on—on, but that was just a couple of miles from home. Definitely, Buster’s got a mind of his own and the bruises to prove it. (The photo doesn’t do him justice.)
I also said that it might take us up to two weeks to make it all the way to Kamalani Park on our morning walk. I was trying to be conservative and allow a little room to fudge. Well, we made it this morning. As Kathy noted, we’ve been here less than 48 hours and already made the long walk. Ah well, tomorrow we’ll go back and do it again. The second photo shows the stream that runs just behind our condo complex. We cross this (further down where it’s open, of course) and we’re on our way.
And here’s the weather report: 84, sunny with light winds, which started to shift today to more of a traditional trade wind pattern meaning that the VOG (Volcanic Smog) was reduced a bit. Things cleared out and the visibility was good.
The beaches get busy on the weekends, of course, so we decided to get some of our more mundane shopping stuff out of the way. One of these days we have to start working on the condo, there’s a long list. But in the meantime, it was a perfect day to take Buster shopping since we don’t know how long he’ll be with us.
