Aloha y'all, nya! Gosh it is hard to believe that it is December already, and at this rate the Mew Year might pounce upon us before we know it, nya! The tourism is purrone to increase during the Wintery months, as visitors from the nippier mainland purrtake of our perennial purretty bikini weather, the gardens & golf, boutiques & beaches and the stay at the hot spurrings for the soothing soak & tasty treats, nya! The bumpurr crop of the Bluefish, Groupurrs, Mullets, Snappurrs, Sea Bass, Stripurrs & Yellowfins would be purrfect to fill the nekomimi tummy, nya!
