Big Island Vacation

Spring Break –  a chance to get away to warmer weather.

Day One – departed MN at 1 pm CDT, layover in LA and arrived in Kona at 8 pm HST – long day!

 

Day Two – over an inch of rain made for a wet day but a stunning sunset.

 

Day Three – Lavaman Triathlon start and finish were on the beach  outside our lanai.  We watched, but did not participate – drove to see the Pololu Valley and northwest coast line instead.

Day Four – drove to Hilo, still overcast, but we were able to see Rainbow Falls and Pe’epe’e Falls before the rain fell. Another gorgeous sunset.

Day Five – a long walk by the villa lead to finding several very friendly resort cats!

Day Six – Long walk along the beach, drive into Kona, and more time at the beach.

Day Seven – Volcano National Park, Ki’lauea Crater, Thurson Lava Tube and Chain of Craters Road.

Day Eight – Helicopter Ride and Petroglyph Field

 

Day Nine – Drove to Ka Lae, also known as South Point, is the most southerly piece of ground in the US and Flight Home.
