Day one Po'Olu to Hapuna

We started our day early at our favorite coffee bar then walked the farm market for produce.  We drove as far north as the road takes you to Po' olu valley, then slowly made our way to the beach.

Day 3 Kona

Today we went to Kailua-Kona (my home 30 years ago for a spell.  I had never experience the museum Hulihe'e. The summer home of Hawaiian Royallty.  It's a simply home with beautiful Koa wood furnishings, and a magnificent view.  We did the tourist thing in Kona then ended on the beach to watch the sunset.

Day 2. Hanging out with JD

Jeramiah has been busy with his friend from high school who now lives in Alaska teaching math at the University.  So we had a Kona coffee then got the tour of the farm he lives on.  So many beautiful fruit trees!  I was in Fauna and flora heaven!
We enjoyed some music in town during brunch and then hit the beach until the sun set.  A perfect Sunday.
