My Favorite Island

Having stayed in a bed and breakfast, we awoke to our breakfast being made by Martie, I quickly showered (and I do mean quickly, I didn't want to use too much of the water), and we joined Don at the outdoor patio table. Martie had made an aboslutely divine breakfast of hash and fresh papaya and blueberries (the fruit in Hawaii is mouth-watering DELICIOUS). We chatted, they were super friendly, and even though we wanted to get on our way, we just couldn't seem to leave. That is, until Martie started talking about spirits and other worldly beings; we decided we best be on our way.
Since we missed sunset at South Point, we went there. The view of the Pacific Ocean is gorgeous here; it is the southernmost point in all of the United States.
We went to the Akaka Waterfall, which was gorgeous. I LOVE waterfalls. Here, a lady was selling art in the parking lot. Whether these were authentic or not (she said they were), I bought one. I love souvenirs that have a truly local flair to them.
In Hilo, we did some quick souvenir shopping before going to the airport for our flight back to Oahu. On the plane, we discussed what to do tomorrow. We have no plans for the day. Somehow, the subject of Kauai came up: it's the only island that Judy had not been to that she would like to visit. I wouldn't mind going. When we got back to TJ's apartment, we went straight for the computer. We booked a 7 AM flight for Kauai -- it's going to be an early morning!
