Makaiwa Bay

Aerial view of our beach we snorkeled at almost every day.

Kilauea Volcano

The tour of Volcano National Park was one of the highlights of our stay on the big island.  The glow of an active volcano was an amazing site to experience.

Punalu'u Black Sand Beach

Not the best swimming beach, but it sure was beautiful.

The uncrowded and calm beach at our condo complex has been an unexpected surprise. We are reluctant to go anywhere else. We saw dozens and dozens of different species of fish and a sea turtle while snorkeling today.

Hapuna Beach

We expected the beach to be more crowded.

Cloud Forest

Drove up to an elevation of 5000 feet to the cloud forest. This is a Lehua blossom on a 'Ohi'a Tree.

Happy Anniversary

50 years together deserves a trip to Hawaii, right?

Light Show

We watched the aurora dance over the Chugach Mountains for about an hour last Friday night. Some of the most spectacular displays we have seen since moving to Alaska 15 years ago.

Best deck in town

Out to dinner tonight with Mom. No better place to eat than the Snow Goose on a sunny Alaskan evening.
