Plumeria bushes/trees (?) drop their leaves not when they are all dried up and shrivelly, but when they are still quite nice. Riding the bike along a road lined with Plumeria of different shapes and colours, I can not resist picking some off the ground and putting them on the bike.
Back at the hotel, the waves seem higher than normal.
This little guy makes a hell of a noise !
After buying some piece of mind (also known as car insurance), we head off to the town of Captain Cook and 'The Painted Church'. The plan was to attend a church service there tomorrow and today is supposed to be a scouting trip to figure out how long it would take us to get there. After climbing from sea level quite high to Captain Cook, we have to get down again to the coast. Nice vistas:
Then we get to the St Benedict, the 'painted church'.
|WTF? It is famous because they 'painted it white'?|
|fabulous view for everyone|
|I still only see WHITE|
|OH! I SEE !!!! It is the "painted on the inside church" !|
Please note how the geometric palm tree patterns transform into the classical cathedral architectural pattern ;-)
|Is that a palm tree behind Jesus casting the devil (with coins dropping out of pockets) into the abyss?|
All I could do after that was have a nap, and when I woke up it was the perfect time to take the bicycle to the grocery store again and observe the sunset on the ride back (Traditions/habits are easily formed here ;-)
|See the dog in the bottom right? Waiting for his surfer master. Seems to be very common around here.|
|Another old man and the sea|
|Sunset from the grocery store|
|on the way back|
|Yes. I am sweating. I am biking and it is 27 degrees and muggy ;-)|
|until tomorrow !|
