Shoes in the Sand at the Kohala Coast’s Mauna Kea Beach Hotel

February 8, 2011

The Mauna Kea Beach Hotel was founded by Laurance S. Rockefeller in 1965

After presentations at two Clark Realty offices today, one in Waimea and one at our office at The Shops at Mauna Lani, Susan Chouinard and I finally took a much needed break from the insanity of the last week (the completion and release of the Clark Realty website redesign) to stop at the Mauna Kea Beach Resort for lunch at the Hau Tree beachside restaurant.

Unfortunately, this wasn’t a day for surf and sand or mai tais and sunsets. We did, however, enjoy sharing a rather large tuna and artichoke sandwich and a chance to take some time to talk work strategy while watching the waves break just offshore.

A few big waves rolled in while we were having lunch, but I missed the photo op!

It’s 7:15 pm and we just resolved another data issue on our site. Tomorrow, we make the drive to Keauhou for our last office meeting of the week. Looking back, stopping for lunch today was the perfect break–just what we needed to clear our heads and get us through the rest of another long work day.

I hope to catch up on a few posts here on the blog soon, but, as my friend Eric points out, when you live in Hawaii there are times when “real life” reminds us that we aren’t on a permanent tropical vacation here on the Big Island. These last few weeks have definitely been those weeks…but I can’t complain. There was still time to stop and get my shoes in the Kohala Coast sand today. For that, I’m grateful.
