Day 6 ... Thursday
February 27, 2014
Thursday morning, I got Susan & Brooke to go out for a 3 mile walk with me!
But after breakfast, they were both tired & wanted to take a nap! So mom & I went back to the rocky side of A-Bay & walked around while they napped.
Look at how clear the water is there!
When the girls woke up, we headed north for a road trip around the North Kohala Coast.
Our first stop was the Lapakahi State Historical Park.
The park contains the ruins from a seaside village that was built over 600 years ago.
Our next stop was a town called Hawi (pronounced Ha-vee) where we ate lunch and had a Hawaiian shaved ice!
I had strawberry with tahitian vanilla ice cream in it. Yum!!!
And then we walked around the town & shopped in all the cute little mom & pop stores.
Our third stop was in Kapaau at the statue of Kamehameha I, a great leader who united the Hawaiian islands.
The statue was made in Italy in 1880. On the way to Hawaii, the ship that was carrying the statue sank & the statue was lost at sea. But in 1912 it was found & placed here in Kapaau.
Our last stop on this road trip was the end of the road. Literally. The road ended at the Pololu Valley Lookout
which is yet another absolutely beautiful place in Hawaii!
You can hike down to the bottom but Brooke wasn't feeling well so we decided not to.
Instead, we headed back to Waikoloa & got there a little after sunset.
Brooke stayed at the condo while Mom, Susan & I went to dinner at Merriman's Mediterranean Cafe.
After dinner, we went back to the room & I went to bed. These long days really wore me out!
