bamalamalu our days match the day of the month. We arrived on November 1st and that was day 1. Did you go to Smith's Tropical Paradise?
I have never lived with a dog. My parents and then Dan and I have always been cat people. Funny how that works out.


hang10tiki my husband the Christmas Elf. He's just so cute.

hang10tiki love love love this one. Thank you for the countdown, this is going to be fun.

=============================

The way back home from Kauai began on Day 15. We were due home on that same day but as it turned out we got to the Sacramento Airport at 7 am on Day 16.

Here's the end of our trip to Kauai story.


We said goodbye to the Sheraton.


One last drive through the Old Town Koloa.


It's not often that you get to see a couple of palm trees being drug down the street.


Look what happened recently to Little Lola's palm tree in her backyard.



I love McDonald's oatmeal and Dan liked the local's breakfast so we stopped here on the way to the airport.


I got a kick out of this truck in the parking lot.


We arrived four hours early as planned by Dan. We asked about our gate and a security guard whipped out two boxes and lei'd us! Then sent us on to our gate.


At the Kauai Airport we were greeted by a gecko.



After four hours waiting in the airport lounge we were on the plane to Oahu a quick 45 minute flight.


Leaving Kauai behind, so sad but it will be great to get home.


We flew over the ocean while looking at the clouds below.


Arriving on the island of Oahu.


We had one hour until our next flight. We ran to the gate and found the flight delayed from 2:30 PM until 5:00 PM. We were told to go away until 5.


We walked through every gift shop. There was a shot glass that I bought for Dan. It had tikis and I wanted one too. I found another "last one" at this shop.


Next we found a table and bought a meal. We ate very slowly and watched out the window at the airport activity. Not bad to have a view of Diamond Head.


We were rewarded with a beautiful rainbow. It lasted for about 15 minutes and then it was gone. We were so lucky to have seen it.


At 5 PM we were back at our gate to find the next message. The plane was delayed for another 5 hours. We were directed to another gate.


The weirdest thing. They sent us to a closed down section of the airport. The busy part had a 3 stall bathroom for women with long lines. Here we had a huge bathroom that went on forever.


Here's another isle. No one using it either.


It was dark and the gift shops were all closed.


We found out that the delay was caused when the food delivery truck for our plane had a bad driver. He ran the truck into the plane so hard it caused structural damage. It had to be repaired and then inspected before we could fly to the mainland. Inspection is a really good idea.

We relaxed and read books. I kept thinking that they would eventually send us to a hotel. But at 10 PM they started boarding.


We were so tired.


When we got to the Sacramento Airport the luggage parasol kept breaking down. An hour later we got our luggage.


Another hour to drive home. All together we were up for 23 hours from hotel to home. But no real mishaps and our home was
still intact. So it was a perfect trip.

WooHooWahine is working on our next trip. If you need an excellent travel agent she is here on Tiki Central. She is a professional who will work hard for you.

Tomorrow I'll share our trip treasures that we brought home and are now displaying. Cheers, Wendy

Wendy, we were on the North Shore the same time you were on the South. Looks like a number of TC'ers had the same idea!
We had a great time as usual, despite the wet winter North Shore weather. Back to the grind on the mainland now.

sirginn we missed all the wet weather. We had one day with a few sprinkles. Sorry you had more. Did you hang out at Tiki Iniki?


hang10tiki your wish is granted, see below.

hang10tiki I'm loving these countdown photos but where are the numbers? This one should be 23 days until Christmas. Am I right?


==================================


Kauai, Hawaii 2016 the goodies we brought home are:


A free bag from the Kauai Store. You can order on-line or if you are on the island Chongolio has a wall of art to choose from.


Dan wanted tiki t-shirts and we found these four.


He also wanted tapa towels to put on top of his stereo components.


I had fun searching for more Hawaii shot glasses in thrift stores and at the airport.


I bought a cloth bag because it was made from the same cloth that I made table clothes from after our trip to Maui. It's my favorite cloth of my lifetime.


I still need to find a frame to hang the Honu by Chongolio print.


Dan hung his Danno sign in the garage man cave.


I hung the tiny surf board in the diningroom with art by CY and Zero Tiki.


A wonderful trip. While posting these photos each day I have been working on the Wish List #7. Photos will begin shortly.

Cheers, Wendy

hang10tiki I think this is number 22? I must be vain because this is my favorite so far. Santa dancing is so Dan!

=================================

My dream has come true. I used to say to Dan that one day the cancer society Discovery Shop near our home would have a whole bunch of glaze for me to buy.

It happened! All new bottles.

The manager had thought it might be a bad idea to accept all of these bottles but when they were all gone within 24 hours she was elated.

We hauled them home.


I organized them all. OH NO what will I do with so many jars of purple?


I numbered them and


listed them in my binder.


Of all these jars 31 were new glazes that I've never used before. I counted my glaze strips and there were 31. Imagine that!


Dan was hoping that I would retire from ceramics in 5 years. Now he thinks it will be 10. He could be right or more glaze
could show up at the discovery shop.

Cheers, Wendy

Ha - I bought those same tapa print towels at Longs! Great minds...

I haven't had time to compare the full calendar, but a quick check showed that we went to Smith's on Saturday Nov 12 - so I think we actually were there the same day as you! We didn't go until afternoon, so maybe missed you by a couple hours? When we first arrived, I commented how some of the birds really walk right up to with a look on their face like "where's my food?" I'm surprised they had any room left in their bellies after your visit!

hang10tiki it's on my mind every day.

hang10tiki you make him so cute.

bamalamalu how fun. We only talked to one couple one day and that was on the Japanese island. The rest of the time we were on our own. We did feed birds a total of 20 pounds of feed.

=============================

One of my favorite things to do is to find my trip souvenirs at home either before or after a trip. They cost so much less that way.

Earlier this year we went to the South Pacific. We visited Moorea. I bought a shot glass there.
This week I was in a thrift store and I saw this hanging on a hook. Looking closer I saw Moorea. $6. Great I would buy it.


I took it off the hook and when I turned it over it had a Tahitian black pearl attached. I don't know if it is real or not but it sure is pretty.


I have now hung it in one of the tiki rooms.



===============================

Wish List #7 Progress Report. Lets start off with a story.

Duane aka Psycho Tiki D and I were talking. I mentioned that I had two tiki places left to use as Sacramento Crawl mugs inspirations. He asked if I had ever considered using The Tahiti. It's a place that I had been going to since I was in junior high. I hadn't but I should consider it. The decorations there were more nautical but the name sure sounded good.

Dan and I went to Tahiti this year. The name sure feels tiki. Then I forgot about this until lunavideogames contacted me about his Wish. He showed me these photos.

He has a tiki bar he calls Tiki the Hut. He wondered if I could make a few mugs like this Tahitian tiki each year as he needed them.






He also wants this girl made and attached to the tiki by a chain.


So I thought Tahiti, Tahiti, Tahiti. It just keeps coming up. So I proposed this to him. I will use your photo to make a Tahiti Sacramento Crawl mug.
If you like how I sculpt that mug then I will go ahead and make the girl too (just for him and not the crawl) and each year I will alter some of the crawl mug casts to fulfill his Wish. This way I am responsible for making the mold. If the mug is what will work for him that works but no matter what I will make this as the 2017 Sacramento Crawl mug.

So the 2016 crawl has ended and it is still October. I need to start now because the Wish List #7 has the most orders I've ever attempted.

So it's time to re-use the sculptors clay. I decided to break down the Bali Hai and the Tropics Pineapple. Don't look at the dust collection it's not displayed well.


This clay is super hard so I put Dan to work beating it with a hammer into


long snakes that heat will soften easier.


He kept at it until I had enough for the Tahiti sculpture.

That's it for tonight. Cheers, Wendy
