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…
Reef from Trevor’s window seat.
Kahoolawe and Maui?
Trevor waiting for our baggage. Everyone found their bag… But me…
We ate at Ken’s before heading back to Hilo’s airport… later to find out they didn’t know where my bag was…
Our first stop: Rainbow Falls :)
Stairs to the top of the falls.
HUGE Banyon tree.
Another stop: Side of the road fruit stand.
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!
Katie and I enjoying our coconut milk.
Love me some nature!
Another stop: Waipio Lookout. (*We took a lot of photos with another camera too.. Need to grab those from Katie later)
We met a goat :)
A gorgeous sunset to end our crazy-hectic first day on the Big Island.
