And so by Tacoma, Ranger, Windstar and Subaru, one by one we all set off, going to Hana, Maui.
Vince is 87 and a non nonsense kinda guy (engineers always are). A bunch of us went to be of service to him and his daughter Jenny, in return for staying on his beautiful land. Here he and Mel are sorting out the evenings sleeping arrangements!
While Jenny bosses Ulli around, I roll up with the new tire delivery.
Dan donated his BBQ - which made it out before he did and the girls decided that for now, 'here' was just as good as any!
Ahhhhhh yes, after weeks of raging wind on the North Shore, the glorious stillness of Hana was a welcome barometric change.
Then Keevil showed up......all tooled, tarped and ready to go, carry on camping!
While the lads put a lick of paint on the new fruit stand that foreman Danny had been in charge of erecting the previous day.......
......the girls set about weeding and replanting the vegi garden.
Then it was off to lunch for a cold beer and the best Thai food on Island.
All that manly work got Ulli pumped up for some heavy duty 'Hello' reading on the beach.
While Ian paid tribute to Her Majesty on jubilee weekend.
Those who surfed - did, while I took my gopro and went for a wee!
It was all go, Dr. Foster supplied the entertainment with his world exclusive fire twirling show.
Only to be upstaged by dark horse Dan who learned to breathe fire like a pro whilst in Egypt (as one does). To say this display was unexpected would be an understatement, but Danny's inaugural fire dribble brought the house down.
Full moon - and Danny makes sure he gets a good look at her.... I mean Uranus. Daniel you're a star!
