Vacation From Vacation

Trevor and I planned a Memorial weekend vacation on the Big Island with friends. Since we are living on Oahu, it is our mission to island hop. We also needed to get dive certified before the trip because our friends were going to do the manta ray night dive. Luckily, we made it work – finished dives 1, 2, 3, and 4 just in time for our trip. We got up around 6 am Saturday morning, picked up our friends, and headed to HNL for our 9:55 am flight to Hilo.

*We forgot to grab my Canon camera AND GoPro :( So if some of these photos are blurry, it’s because I’m not used to the borrowed camera…

We ate at Ken’s before heading back to Hilo’s airport… later to find out they didn’t know where my bag was…

Trevor’s first drink in a coconut! Although, I think he wanted the cliché alcoholic drink in a coconut. But boy, that natural coconut milk was DE-LI-CIOUS!
