The Big Island....Hilo....
What a rough night!!!
I have never been sick on a cruise but I was ready to toss my cookies at any moment!! I got up and took my Navy Shower....the drain didn't work.....so I waited for ever to get hot water by lettin' it run in the sink.....hold the shower head in the sink.....great huh!! Then when the water was warm enough to shower I got under it....turned the water off....soap up and then rinse. It was the only way! Shitty ship!!
All the while I was staggerin' around like a drunken sailor!! Gettin' sicker by the minute!
I took my shower and laid down.
I dried my hair then laid down!
Put my clothes on and then laid down.....I was stressed out!!!
What if the OldFolks were as sick as I was?????
I ready to call it quits and not go anywhere but to the bathroom to vomit. Roy called them. They were as fine a wine!
I felt much better!!!
We visited the National Park of Volcanoes....or something like that.....It was cool! There was this stop at a lava tube.....Lava tubes are just what it sounds like but lava no longer flows thru them. The OldFolks wanted to go thru it. I did not!!
I have been in a lot of caves all over Missouri and Arkansas....another hole in the ground that reeked of sewer in the middle of a rainforest didn't entice me at all....go figure!
Roy picked me up and carried me thru.....damn it!!
After all that excitement I had to use the restroom....it was rainin' and cold....that didn't help any. Roy and I stopped 3 minutes.....just 3 minutes. He times me....sometimes we race....so I know only 3 minutes.
"Where's mom and dad?"
"I'm not sure but that old couple gettin' on the WRONG BUS sure looks likes them."
"Oh Lord! MOM!!! MOM!!!!" and off he runs to get them. I just giggled....not my parents!!
Next stop the Orchid nursery.....that was a nice place. I had no idea that there was so many different orchids.
Roy wanted to buy his mother a lei....of silk flowers. I helped him pick it out and gave him a pin I wanted...lapel pins thingys. I saw QueenVicky lookin' over the post cards.....that is her thing....they only cost 10cents and RoySr doesn't have a hissy over postcards. She had mentioned to me months ago that she wanted a puka shell necklace so I pointed her in the right direction.
RoySr had a cow!!
I just walked away. I can't stand it.
What a tightwad!!
If QV wants a freakin' $5 necklace...let her have it!!!
She bought it despite the fit.
Roy gave his mother the lei and you would have thought he bought her a new Rolls Royce!!
Back at the port, Roy bought me a lei of real flowers...so beautiful! It was so fragrant! I let everyone that passed by smell it!!
Too bad that it didn't live long.....I'd loved to bring it home.
Next Stop Maui...Lahaina!
