Lihue – Day 4

While our hotel is not conducive to nice sunrises and sunsets it was fun to look at the houses on the east side of the lagoon. According to Zillow they range in price from the low seven figures to well up into the figures.

While rain was the issue with my golf game on Tuesday, today was mostly overcast with temperatures in the upper 70’s to low 80’s. The issue today was wind. We had sustained winds 15-20 mph with gusts nearing 30. It was a guessing game how much more, or less, club to compensate. Overall, my game stayed pretty strong. I missed more greens but my short game was good, but it’s tough when you need to read the uphill/downhill/slope and wind to putt.

A relaxing afternoon at the pool, then dinner on the beach. Overall, a very nice last day.
