We said goodbye to our family who remain on Hawaii and we remember our loss as well. Its always tough to say goodbye for good.
It was our last full day on Hawaii. We decided to stay right around the hotel and the ocean to soak in all of the things that we don’t have at home in the Desert. The constantly changing colors of the ocean from multi hue-blues, turquoise, sea foam green and grey. As we soak up the colors we simultaneously enjoy the trade winds with the smell of salt, flowers and the tropics. I think we have all of those sensory inputs locked in hopefully till the next time we come here under happier circumstances.
Things will never be the same for us now when we visit Hawaii. Libby’s brother will not be with us in body but will always be with us in our memories. That is one of the ways that we all will continue in this world when we pass on is in the memories of our relatives and friends.
Tonight we decided we were hungry for Italian food. Yep, Italian food in Hawaii. We went to eat at Mi’s Restaurant on the beach. Supposed to be the best on the Big Island.
I do believe it was the best meal we have had in five days. For me Cioppino filled with every kind of seafood in a tomato based sauce your can imagine. So good. Lib had her favorite Pasta Prima Vera, so creamy with a glass of wine and a shared Crème Brule. All served right on the beach.
The evening came to an end sitting on our veranda looking over the dark ocean. Best way I can think of ending our last night on Hawaii and our final goodbye to a brother.
