Celebrating a 60th Wedding Anniversary—Early Morning and Ready to Go

It’s Tuesday. I’m wide awake by 4:30 a.m. Kevin is sleeping peacefully, so I quietly get up and get ready to meet the rest of my family downstairs for breakfast. We agreed the night before to meet at 6 am. Sure enough, as I walk in to the lobby, Mom, Dad, Cindy, and Terri are there and ready to go. I think yet again that I need to travel with my family more. Everyone is so easy to be around. There is no drama either. So nice! We are all ready to get our day started with a nice breakfast. The p...

Celebrating a 60th Wedding Anniversary—A Life of Love

Kevin and I arrive in the lobby at the agreed-upon time: 6:15 p.m. Mom, Dad, Cindy, and Terri are already there looking nice in their fancy tropical attire. From the second-floor open-lobby balcony we can see that the cabana near the beach is being set up for our arrival. We arrive at the entrance to the restaurant, and the host knows right away we are here for our event. She takes us around the large swimming pool over to the very last cabana, where a table for six has been set up with a beaut...

Celebrating a 60th Wedding Anniversary—Father’s Day Too!

The temperature on this side of the island is much cooler, so Kevin sets about getting a fire started downstairs. I go online to look for restaurants having been assured by the owner in previous emails that it will be easy to get a reservation on a Sunday night. What we both forgot is that this Sunday is Father’s Day. Being the small town that it is, there aren’t many restaurants, and most of them are booked. What to do? Time to use my Perceiving preference (superpowers?) and come up...

Celebrating a 60th Wedding Anniversary—Extraverted Intuition Meets Introverted Sensing

Hawaii (the Big Island) is like no other Hawaiian island. It has so many different landscapes from one part to the next. As we drive along the newly renovated Senator Daniel Inouye Highway, patches of lava rock intermingle with plants and small trees. We pass a few small neighborhoods as well and dream as we see an occasional “For Sale” sign. As soon as we got on a straightaway, I was sure everyone in the back seat will be sound asleep. Instead, we are all wide awake, looking around and not want...

Celebrating a 60th Wedding Anniversary—Day One Adventure

My plan upon arrival in Hawaii is meant to take us down the west coast of Hawaii and down and under the south end, where we will end up in Volcano. I've rented a house through Airbnb that is just one mile outside Volcano National Park. My early plan, until the switch to our itinerary, was to have an early lunch around the south tip of the island. Now that we are past lunch, I figure we can get into the house just in time for dinner. This will then give us time to visit Volcano National Park toni...
