We’ve been so busy tending to our guests that I haven’t tended to this blog. Shame on me. It’s fun though giving orchard tours, helping folks who want to pick some Macadamias to take home with them get all set up [1/2 price for those you pick yourself] and of course helping people get the most out of their vacations.
Here’s a picture taken of the attached wing of our house. I heard guests talking and saw them gesturing quite animatedly and wondered what they were pointing their cameras at. I went down to see and here it is. The rainbow was even more impressive in person. But that’s Hawaii for you.
For those of you looking for airfare, there’s some great deals out there. Try bookingbuddy.com. It will allow you to go to several sites all from one location and you only have to enter your info once. I’ve got a great 3 night special right now. It’s listed on our front page of our website that you just clicked off of to read this Blog. Wonderful time to travel
I love that term “webmaster”. How about web slave? I was up till 3:30 am working on updating our website for the farm B&B. Then at it again this morning right after serving breakfast. Among some other things, I wanted to update my index page and put a link or two to this blog. By the way, if you got here some other way than off our website here’s a link to it: http://www.macadamiameadows.com
We’ve got guests arriving soon- so I’m off to greet them. A big aloha from the Southern most Point in all the USA [no it isn't the Florida keys]. We’re actually located one road over from “South Point Rd.” which leads you right down to Ka Lae [in Hawaiian] which is indeed the southern most point . If you jump off South Point cliff the next landfall is the Antarctic.
As you walk through the Macadamia Nut orchard you come to a slight hill in the orchard which comprises our meadow [hence the name "Macadamia Meadows"]. You can stand there, surrounded by Macadamia Trees and the gentle scent of Macadamia Blossoms, and as you look north there is the edge of Mauna Loa ,a beautiful green mountain rising to the sky [it's actually a saddle back volcano]. As you stand and listen there’s the soft chirp of birds in the orchard. And I think how grateful I am, in all the turmoil this world has been in this last week with all the financial bad news literally around the world, to have a quiet place of utter peace that I can turn to.
If a natural setting appeals to you, and the sounds of an Hawaiian rooster calling to it’s mate reminds you of simpler times you’d like to enjoy again [maybe a memory from visiting your grandparents farm on summer vacation when you were young] then welcome to our farm:)
