Saturday Snapshot (January 26, 2013) Dec Visit to The Big Island, Hawaii

The third day of our cruise we visited the The Big Island. We picked up a small van tour in Hilo for a three and a half hour tour with lots of sites!

1st stop: Rainbow Falls - not big but pretty

We sampled shortbread and coffee while watching them make the goodies!

We got some great decorating ideas at the candie shop.
So gorgeous!

3rd stop: Buildings full of all varieties of good smelling orchids

Learn how to grow orchids in the greenhouse.

The next site was Hawaii Volcanoes National Park
but I will post those pictures next time.
The last stop was The Mauna Loa
Macadamia Nut Company.
You can sample many flavors - Yumm!

Next week I'll show pics of the volcano area.

  1. I'd love to get to Hawaii one day- it looks an amazing place.

  2. We spent 5 days on Hawaii for our honeymoon a few years ago. We loved it - such an alien landscape. We'll never forget the vug!!

  3. Love the big macademia nut can! Hawaii is beautiful.

  4. I've never been to Hawaii. It looks beautiful!

  5. All those orchids must have been amazing to see as well as smell. How wonderful!

  6. Thanks for these WARM snowed again in Pennsylvania.

  7. Interesting! Seems like it was a varied tour!

  8. I've never been to Hawaii, but would love to go. Thanks for sharing your holiday photos.

  9. Since you went in December I imagine you must have learned to say 'Mele Kelikimaka' ... I don't know if I've spelled that correctly but it's Merry Christmas. I'm sure you had a lovely trip.

  10. Hawaii is on my bucket list... just once I would like to experience it. I should start prepping the hubby for maybe a 2014 or 2015 plan...

  11. That looks like a lot of fun! Pretty much everything in this post was stuff we wanted to see but didn't have time for when we were on the big island. We spent most of our time in Kona and seeing the volcano.

  12. Hawaii And a cruise...lovely...Happy travels♫

  13. The waterfall is beautiful. I look forward to seeing the volcanic pictures. My Snapshot is at

  14. Looks like a fun visit. Great shots.
