Aloha from Hawaii

Written by

If this posting's formatting looks a little weird it's because I'm being frugal by posting from my cell phone. In a pricing oddity, Internet access for the day is about the cost tennis lessons for the week. You'd think Hawaii is a foreign country at $10 a day.

To explain the tennis lessons, you have to understand that I'm staying at the Hale Koa, which is a non-profit hotel for the military. Room rates are about a $100 a night. It's one of the best deals the military offers in my opinion.

I believe we are doing a good job staying on the budgetm but it's hard to say. We are here with friends and different people pick up the tab each night. At the end of the trip, we'll use a spreadsheet to reconcile the accounts. In the meantime, I'm keeping a mental tally - not the best method, but I'm on vacation and, of course, lazy.

  1. You should post some pictures when you get the chance!

  2. Yes, I’ll try to once I take some. We are with a pair of a very good amateur photographers who I’ve been happy to let be the historians. They think it’s weird that I brought a computer on vacation, so I won’t get those for a bit.

  3. If you are still on the island and looking for a cheap place to eat head to Diamond Head Market and Grill; $8-12 for a plate lunch. It is on the bus route to Diamond Head. Energetic souls could walk to it (but it would be a long walk – less so if coming back from Diamond Head!). Kaimuki is another place with lots of restaurants; spoil yourself at 12th ave grill – top notch (but on the higher end of the scale).


  4. Thanks for the tips Fallon. We may try to hit that 12th ave grill tonight. I skipped Diamond Head as everyone else in my party was going at 6AM. It would have been the 4th straight day of seeing a state park, which is fine, but I just wanted to read my book a little and sit by the pool. It seems that sometimes you can get so wrapped up in seeing everything that you need a vacation after your vacation.

    I went to a wedding at the Hale Koa once. Very good value. There is so much natural beauty in Hawaii, who needs to stay in a fancy resort?
