Last Day on the Big Island, part 1

Today was the last day on the island, or was to be the last day but more on that later. I spent part of the day driving south on HI-11 stopping to see what I could see. I got as far south as Ho'okena before turning around and coming back into Kailua-Kona,

Then I wandered around town. Best places I found were Mermaid's, Hang Loose Brudda, and a return visit to the Kona Farmers Market.

I sat on a retaining wall at the harbor and watched the sunset. For those attuned to the Hawaiian environment time stops for the 15 minutes around sunset.

Well I ran some errands then returned my rental car before I headed to the airport to catch a redeye flight back to the mainland. And from that point things went fairly radically off course.

After checking in I was instructed to take my carry-on luggage and walk close to a block on pavement to the open-air waiting area for this flight. I got maybe half way when I tripped, stumbled, and fell down landing on my face. The end result is two black eyes, bruises and contusions, broken glasses, and a fractured nose. (I'm saving you from pictures of this new look, or maybe I'm saving what's left of my tattered pride.)

I can tell you that the security, fire personnel, paramedics, and hospital staff were wonderful. They went out of their way to help a solo traveler feel less alone.
