Photos compliments of Ms Z, my stepdaughter, who’s sailing around Hawaii these days….having got there from the South Pacific islands….I thought you might enjoy these of the volcano, particularly.

    Its beautiful…..from a boat. Of our 3 trips to Hawaii we only went to the big island once. Half way on our flight from Maui we encountered smoke from the volcano due to the eruptions at the time, and when we arrived at the airport and mentioned it where we picked up a car, the lady said they were all concerned about their health. We only went to Kona, not Hilo, because Hilo got it the worst.

    Nice! The one thing we missed on 2 trips to Hawaii. Glad to know she arrived safely.

    I have only been on the big island , at the Mauna Kea Hotel, with clients who were building a house above the hotel…what a HOTEL!! AMAZING….And the road there has lava on both sides for as far as you can se!
    They’ll sail to Maui tomorrow IF the winds are doable….it’s a really rough channel, she just wrote me.
    Sailing like this isn’t my cup of tea but, as hard work as it is, she loves it (mostly!)

    Glad you like the pix!


  5. Beautiful pictures.
    I’m not jealous.
    Not me.
    Not one bit.
    Uh uh.

    Personally I wouldn’t go to Hawaii if you paid my way.

    Kid, it is gorgeous, the tradewinds are more wonderful than I’d ever thought, and the food is outrageously good…..can’t imagine why you feel that way!!!

    Ed, I’m not a beach destination vacationer but Hawaii is more special than I’d thought!!
    “really” ๐Ÿ™‚

    As someone who shipped in and out of Parle Harbor (Island of Ouhau) + visited the “Big Island” Hawaii as well a Maui, all I can only say is: save your money*. That is unless you are very rich. Mexico and Costa Rico have just as much to offer for reasonable cost. A friend of mine just returned from there and couldn’t believe the prices (never go back). It isn’t for the average person!

    *Honolulu is the only place I ever got spit at during my entire stint in the Navy

    JMB, could that be ‘cos you’re a Haole?
    I LOVED the islands, but had the run of an upscale private home. Who wouldn’t? Since Mexico lives here, why bother? ๐Ÿ™‚

    Really, lovely pictures.

    I don’t know what a “Haole” is, sorry. I guess an “upscale private home” would be nice anyplace. I don’t believe I’ve ever had the pleasure. I guess that you could say that I grew-up across the tracks!


  11. Kid says:

    Thanks JMB, That is my impression.

    Baysider, I’m with you….gorgeous place….tradewinds are unbelievable…I’d never experienced that type of breeze and living in luxury in Hawaii is heaven! You should see the house I designed for my otherwise commercial client (Jones Bros Construction)

    The cost has skyrocketed since our last visit. It wasn’t that bad when we went. We don’t go anymore for that reason.
