We had a great time in Hawaii the other week. We’ve been back there a few times, but this was the first time we returned to the big island. We first visited not all that long after we started going out 25 years ago (this month)!
The elements conspired against us in a couple of ways. Our scheduled helicopter ride got rained out. And the lava – which had been flowing freely to the ocean for more than a year – mostly dried up about 3 weeks before we arrived.
Other than that we had a fantastic time snorkeling, visiting volcano national park, checking out the jungles and waterfalls – all the things! We spent a couple of days in Kona, a couple in Volcano (the town), and a few in Hilo.
