I have to pay for internet here (booo, hiss) so I probably won’t be online much this week. But I wanted to check in!
On Tuesday we went to the Hanalei farmer’s market, which was awesome!
I bought some local goat cheese, some spices, a really good little low-acid white pineapple, and some local honey to take home.
My sisters bought chocolate dipped frozen bananas! Yummy.
Near the end of our time in Kaua’i we…took a trip to Costco. Didn’t buy much, which was good considering that we were leaving! Then a stop by the Waimea Falls on the way home, which are apparently the falls from the opening of Fantasy Island?
(I was having fun taking photos at various shutter speeds. This is relatively low, so the water is blurry. I like it!)
We did a little more shopping in Hanalei, and briefly checked out the Kilauea Lighthouse from afar – couldn’t be bothered to actually go through the wildlife refuge and such!
And I made my mark on an autograph tree.
We haven’t seen much of the Big Island yet, but it definitely has a really different landscape from Kaua’i! Lava fields and such. I haven’t taken many photos yet, but we can see the ocean from our window and it’s really quite nice.
Today we’re headed out to the national volcanoes park – should be interesting, but it’s a 3-hour drive which I’m not that into!
