Day 114: Air Amour; Paramour

Kauai is one of the prettiest of the Hawaiian islands, and it is frequently chosen as a setting for movies. Laetitia and her group had lunch with a view of the conical peak that was filmed and then extensively edited to serve as “Bali Hai” in the film South Pacific. That afternoon they watched some hang gliders. A rather indignant local girl told Laetitia that a man from Kentucky had bought her a few drinks and then tried to get her to go hang gliding without her bikini. It provided Laetitia with the limerick of the day.

When a man who came from Marshes Siding
Sought amore in the air while hang gliding
His reluctant wahine
Kept on her bikini
For she wanted to be law-abiding.
