When my husband was packing to come visit me in Kona, I reminded him to take a dinner jacket and dress shirt. He remembered the dinner jacket. The dress shirt seemed to have slipped his mind, which necessitated a trip to Macy's when he got here. Like a guy would do, he put the Ralph Lauren shirt back on the hanger after spotting the price tag. Nope, he wanted just a plain white (cheap) shirt.
Which I should point out, he didn't find. No matter how much he likes to claim he can walk into a store, grab what he wants, pay and get out. Unlike me who will shop for the best thing. He still had to touch almost every shirt rack and display before he found a shirt that would work for him.
He needed the get up because Le Mer Restaurant (inside the Halekulani Hotel in Waikiki) was one of our intended destinations during his visit. They almost stuck us on the pool side with all of the noise but when I asked for a better table, the staff was quick to oblige.
Le Mer was a delightful treat after our day of traveling and learning about the Hawaiian royal family. We had spent most of the afternoon at the Bishop Museum in Honolulu, and we only made it through two floors of the Hawaiian Hall. However, we did get great photos of the human-like fingers in the pectoral fins of the sperm whale. Which you can see in the link below.
You can read more in my personal blog today and see a lot more photos at this link: 48 Hours in Honolulu: Bishop Museum and Halekulani Le Mer.
