Coconut Island- immediately after they landed in Hilo
Akaka Falls on a very warm morning
Jams at Mr. Ed's in Honomu
Hakalau- This bridge was originally the train trestle.
Mango daiquiris with our own mango purée
Early morning on the Kona side-as seen from the chartered fishing boat we were on
Another sunrise shot on the boat
The first Ono/Wahoo he caught-about 20 pounds
His second catch-A 48 pound Ono!
The deck hand swiftly cut up our 70 or so pounds of fish
It was both adventurous and relaxing...
Besides catching it, he made the best sashimi ever-so incredibly fresh
He also dipped some in rice flour and fried it in coconut oil-my most favorite cooking oil
Daughter had to have a visit to Ken's House of Pancakes, of course.
Then a great walk at Carlsmith Beach Park, just past Richardson's.
It was gorgeous out there.
Another fine feast prepared entirely by our sweet guests.
Ready for grilling...
Ono in teriyaki marinade
Saying goodbye is so hard...
But they had a great visit.
