My family's from Okinawa and Hawaii, but my husband and I live near Seattle. We're a teacher/musician and a librarian/glass artist. We love to bicycle, walk and spend time outdoors.
I was joking with Emily just before they left that they were the quietest guests ever not heard! But it really was true, as they came and went with their bikes without any commotion, even the dogs barely barked at this very low impact couple.When folks talk about leaving a "small footprint", Emily is just that type of person, creating very little waste and taking good care of things. I enjoyed receiving some organic gardening advice, and my family was fascinated with the idea of bicycle transportation instead of cars. It was a pleasure having Emily as a guest, and she is welcome to return any time.
Emily and Shane were great guests. They were good communicators, adventuresome (riding bikes around the Big Island) and they left the house in tip top shape and are always welcome to stay with us.
