It was our daughter’s last full day in Guam and we were driving down Marine Drive on our way to dinner with some of my wife’s cousins (on her father’s side) and we stopped for a final rendezvous wih my daughter’s childhood penpal and distant cousin (on my wife’s mother’s side). The pen-pal cousin chose a cute little cafe right on the beach that had a cute little menu and a killer view. And during our visit the killer view came with a twist: a cute little rainbow over Agana Bay.
The place is called the tuRe’ Cafe and it’s popular with the locals. They are known for their cute little breakfasts and coffee-snacks all day long. We sat outside on the deck with the killer view and had our drinks — coffee, tea, juice, beer (guess who had the beer?) and watched the rainbow. And our granddaughter asked if she could sing a song for her mommy’s pen-pal.
Earlier in the week the pen-pal cousin and her kids took our daughter and her family to a water-park one day and then drove them around the island to see the sites. And the next day we were all invited to her mother’s home for a big family dinner party. We said our farewells and hugged. The pen-pal went home to her family. We went on to dinner. The next day my daughter and her family flew home. My wife and I stayed a few more days. But we didn’t see any more rainbows.
