Mr. L suggested we go garage sale-ing yesterday, and that sounded fun to me. The first few places were just okay, but then we hit gold. The address listed was 34 Rainbow Drive. I couldn't think of where that could be -- there aren't any residences on that road. 34 Rainbow turned out to be the old Hilo Memorial Hospital, now home of Hilo Adult Day Care. Sure enough, they were holding a rummage sale.
Mr. L found a kindred spirit and they went digging through CD's; I found my attention to diverted to something else: Art.
The Hilo Adult Day Center will be moving out of the old hospital to a new facility near Komohana and Mohouli. I am sure they'll be delighted with a modern building, but I love the bones of the old hospital. I'll include some pictures of its beautiful architecture below.
Before I go into the "What We're Eating" section, Mr. L suggested I mention the reason for my sporadic Cruel Ironing blogging. I'm just writing my head off elsewhere: www.wisebread.com and www.bigislandnow.com. I hope you'll join me over there for more food writing.
