Let me just tell you about a few of my old friends today....they won't mind if I call them 'old'...friends are like that.
For two weeks we ate at the same table...and travelled in the same vehicle...and went to a lot of the same places. We read many of the same books...and played the same old card games (mostly Rook and Hearts)...went on a zip-lining adventure and snorkeled in a nearby bay. And when the trip was over...
...we were still friends with Dave and Janet.
I have another old friend...who brings back memories of my junior high years...and adventures that we still laugh about. We hike together on occasion, chat often and plan outings together with our hubbies. Just before we left for Hawaii...we spent a day in Vancouver together...our final hurrah at the Vancouver 2010 Olympic games. Marg wished me a wonderful time in Hawaii...and we made plans to catch up once I was back from vacation. You can only imagine my surprise...when I answered a knock on the door of our condo in Kona last Tuesday to find Marg and John on my doorstep! They just happened to be Hawaii as well...with friends of theirs...and they all came over to surprise us. Marg is full of surprises!
We all went out for dinner together...at an oceanfront bistro...and enjoyed coconut shrimp and mahi-mahi while the sun was setting. And when the meal was done, they hurried off to catch their plane back to the neighbouring island...where they were staying.
