Keeping K10D, need all purpose zoom suggestion for 2 trips

Looks like I am leaning against a body upgrade and instead will spend my money on a lens upgrade. I own a K10D with a 50mm FA 1.4, the kits lens and a 50-200. We are heading to Orlando for a week and a few months later Kauai for a week. I am not looking to carry multiple lens. I have been looking around for a single all purpose lens and so far found the following from Pentax, Sigma and Tamron. Sigma makes a 18-250 for around $525 and a 18-200 for around $325. Pentax has a 18-250 for about $350 and Tamron has some 28-200 for around 175. There is no way I want to be carrying around multiple Lens. I just do not thing any of my current lens will get the job done standalone. Also, I plan on bringing a point and shoot (S90 wonderful low light) for evenings and a D10 for swimming and going out on the water.

Any opinions or comments would be welcome.... Thanks
