Visiting Hawaii, The Big Island

Visiting Hawaii, The Big Island

We flew from Honolulu to the island of Hawaii (The Big Island) for the last few days of our trip. We flew into Hilo and had a cabin booked in the Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park for the duration of our stay.

On our first day we decided to check out a bit of the area outside of the park so we drove around and visited a few waterfalls.

I really wanted to go to Akaka Falls which was about 11 miles from Hilo, not too far at all. So we decided to head there first and took a scenic route. Recommend doing the scenic route, you will see a sign for it along the way from Hilo.

Our Cat GOB Loves Halloween Too!

I purchased a pumpkin yesterday so I could make pumpkin seeds.  I decided to start cleaning it out on the floor as we don’t have much counter space in the kitchen.  Our cat named, GOB decided he wanted to help clean out the pumpkin guts.  He stuck his head right...

First Time Snowboarding

First Time Snowboarding

I live on the West Coast in Vancouver where the mountains are a short 30 minute drive from my house.  You’d think because of that I’d be an expert skier or snowboarder.  But I had never strapped a snowboarder to my feet before.  I finally decided it was...
Cascade Mountains

Trip to Las Vegas

I had never been to Las Vegas before and finally got to go!  I only stayed for one night as we were just passing through to go to LA.  I stayed at the Hilton for the night.  It was so hot in Vegas when I was there I couldn’t stand it.  It was awful, I’d...

My First Time Wakeboarding

I love summer and lived on a lake when I was younger but had never water skied or wake boarded.  To be honest I am not the strongest swimmer and was kind of scared of wake boarding.  I finally decided to take the plunge and try wake boarding this summer, and I am so...

First Time Shooting Guns

I live in Canada and we are not aloud to own guns like you can in the United States.  I had never shot a gun before and finally got to in Idaho.  I shot a few different ones, I can’t remember what they were because I know nothing about guns.  It was pretty...

Another Trip to California

After going to Catalina Island I spent a night in Santa Monica.  I had never been there before and thought it was so pretty! The sand was so pure and the waves were so big!  I went on the famous Santa Monica pier and just check out touristy things.  It was a little...
