A Big move is in progress! We’re leaving the New England countryside and heading for Hawaii. This is a shot of our new home in Ke`aau, HI (pronounced Kay-ow). Keaau is on the Island of Hawaii near Hilo. It’s the wet side of the Island about 90 minutes from Kona by car.
It’s been a logistical challenge to move a household and 5 cats to Hawaii. Hawaii is Rabies free so there is a quarantine process that the cats need to go through that includes a 120 wait following a rabies test. The good news is that Hawaii has introduced an airport release program that allows the wait to take place on the origin side so when we arrive in Honolulu we should be able to get the cats through quarantine on the same day for an inter-island flight.
Needless to say, we’re both anxious to get this move completed! Sharon will be officially moved the middle of January and I’ll be following up the middle of February. Our stuff should get there around the time I get there if all goes well. Of course it means that we will both be living in empty houses for about a month. Small price to pay for our slide of paradise.
