Wednesday’s in Waimea


On the far westside of Kauai, the nearest town with any action going on is Waimea. For a change of pace I’ve been dropping in at the town’s community center and socializing with a group of senior ladies. Wednesdays are Hula Days, and although I’m not quite in their age bracket, swaying to ‘the rhythm of the sea’ at these dance lessons has become an activity made even more fun and interesting by chatting it up with the grannies. Some of them will come right up to me and speak candidly about anything that pops up in their minds – it doesn’t matter how young or how old, females LOVE to talk! The weather, food, family, health, travel — I can only hope that someone half my age will listen to ME thirty years from now. As one silver-haired lady put it, “It’s good that you come visit us seniors, I don’t see much young people around here!”
