Just because the house was nice didn’t mean that we were going to miss hitting the beach while we were there. We let the rest of family try a few beaches to find the best ones and we joined later. Here is one of everyone’s favourites. The sand was clean, white and plentiful. The water was warm (warmer than our pool), clear and had fish swimming around us. There was some shade for the kids to play in the sand.
Working together to fill that bucket.
After all that fun in the sun, everyone was ready for lunch. Again – I relied on the recommendations from the family that had been here before and they picked a great restaurant that sat on another beach just down the road.
So much fun in fact Katie passed out pretty quickly.
Qumi got to enjoy her pineapple fried rice!
And the cousins Gianna and Joey played with Katie and Kristie.
There is no denying that the big island is a volcano – in many places it looks like it just erupted and left behind all the black lava rocks.
