This 12-week old Newfie puppy is amazing!!! I can’t believe the next time I see him he’ll be 9 months old!
Went to the South Kona Farm Stand for a great smoothie
And got some macadamias at Joe’s Nuts
I went sunning at the Kealakekua Bay park with a view of the Captain Cook memorial in the background
A couple of great local churches
I went snorkeling at Two Step Beach…
…and randomly bumped into one of my ski students!!! A great way to end the trip
Sunday I got to explore parts of the Big Island I hadn’t seen yet
A stop for a delicious burger in Waimea
Views from the drive from Waimea to Hawi
Meditation at Vipassana Hawaii near Kapaau
Views from the Pololu Valley Lookout
Over the last 2 days I’ve been at 2 different national parks – I feel so grateful that we have the preservation of these natural resources in our country.
Yesterday we went to Haleakala for the sunrise and while we were socked in and missed the sunrise we still got some good views
And today, we got to explore Volcanoes National Park on the big island and went through a rain forest, a lava tube, and hiked on a lava field by Mauna Ulu.
