Hanging Out on the Big Island

The Big island of Hawai’i is much different than the island of Oahu.  Oahu is touristy in parts and busy.  As soon as we landed we could see Hawai’i would be different.  This time we had a one bedroom time share on the Kona Coast.  We couldn’t swim in the ocean from the resort, but we could enjoy an amazing sunset and whale sightings.

We were excited to have a Costco not too far away.  We were able to get some very reasonable grass fed beef and some fresh fruit at a local store.  Other than snorkeling and going to the beach we really just relaxed.  One night we did eat out at the restaurant next to the pool.

The resort had a hula demonstration of local students.  Caroline even was chosen to join in on the fun.

We spent a day at the pool under the shade of an umbrella playing cards and reading.  Cali and Marcus even had a tent to read in.

We had a nice yard and playground right out the sliding glass door.  Marcus and Cali drank …what else but Hawaiian punch.

The flowers were beautiful and some of them smelled so good!

We learned about the different types of palm trees on the island.  Some had coconuts, some had dates and others had different seed pods than we had ever seen before.

One thing we did do was take a tour of a coffee plantation.  It was interesting to learn how long it takes to raise and process coffee.  It takes a great amount of care and time.  Marcus and Cali even made a new friend, a chameleon.

    Beautiful flowers and I love the whales they are such beautiful Mammals. The power and size of them are just amazing to me. This is 1 state I really want to go back to. I was there in the early 80’s but I know it is much different now and I only got to see 1 small area.Thank-you for sharing your trip.
