Day 14 - Driving Tour of the Big Island - Part 1 of 3

January 25, 2010 - Monday - Big Island

We started early the first full day on the Island of Hawaii, also known as the Big Island. I am just going to abbreviate the Big Island as "BI" to save typing going forward. The photo below was taken in the "up country" Parker Ranch part of the island. The elevation was about 4,000 feet. Pretty poinsettias. It is about a 90 minute drive from our condo to our first destination of Akaka Falls.

Beautiful northeastern coastline.
A flowering tree.

The girls took a photo break at a scenic overlook. Notice that the new Sebring is metallic blue. The other two were white. This didn't last long as you will discover later.

On the way to Akaka Falls, we passed through a neat little village named Honomu. We bought coconut pies at Mr. Ed's Bakery.

A couple of interesting little churches in Honomu.

Sigrid never passes up a fruit stand.

On to Akaka Falls.
