Vacation to the Big Island – Hawaii, 2013

In October, my husband and I went for a short vacation to the Big Island. I had never been there before – compared to the islands I have been to, Hawaii is very very much the most volcanic! Such a cool landscape. We mostly stuck around the resort we stayed at (The Hilton Waikoloa Village — GORGEOUS!) but we did rent a car one day and drove all over the island. We had such a great time :)

One engine on our plane failed, so we boarded, then got off again, then waited for four hours for a new plane. In the meantime, we had a couple of cocktails and some lunch at LAX.

Eventually, we were in the air…

Our hotel was gorgeous :) Lots to photograph.

There was a “Museum Walk” which spanned the distance all the way around the hotel. Lots of beautiful artifacts, sculptures, and other creations. It was a nice way to start our day when we walked to breakfast each morning.

The sunsets in Hawaii are breathtaking!

It was a lovely getaway – we relaxed most of the time, which was our primary goal ;)
