Aloha from the Big Island!!!

We are currently enjoying our final night here on the Big Island, right now we are in Kona quietly enjoying some coffee at Lava Java (mmmmmm). Our time has come and gone and as always there is SO MUCH that we were not able to see and yet we leave with a very satisfying feeling know that we saw some incredible things. Here we enjoyed visiting the north shore (kona has been covered by vog) driving on the Hilo side of the island (talk about green!), eating tons of delicious fruits including guavas picked right off of the tree, farmers markets (weird i know but they are kinda fun) offroading (so glad we got a jeep)........waterfalls, snorkeling, going to the southern most point in the U.S., food food food!!! The list could go on and on, suffice it to say we have had an absolute blast, the Big Island is a daunting task not only to see but to even try to photograph in 9 day. It is absolutely gorgeous here, the diversity in climate and wildlife is just staggering at times. We hope to coma back someday soon, for now here are some of my favorites from this leg of our trip, there is a significantly lower number of photos on this post compared to the last, this is not due to lack of content but because i have not been spending to much time in front of the computer editing. Now we are off to Maui for the final leg of our journey. Aloha for now.......

The Adventure Continues....

Well our week on Kauai has now come and gone, while it is always very sad to leave we look forward to the next time that we can come and visit. Our trip this year was absolutely fantastic! We got to enjoy driving the island in a convertible, explored some new beaches and areas of the island that we had not been to before, eat fresh food, chat it up with the locals and met a new friend! I was a little bummed though since i was really looking forward to hanging out with my buddy Thad but it just never happened. The Lord blesses though and HE blessed us with a new friend on the island, her name is Maya and she is such a wonderful and giving person. Just being around her makes life contagious, you just cant help but smile and enjoy life hanging out with her. Anywho, we had man many experiences and memories that we will treasure for years to come, we are now on the Big Island with Jens family and are looking forward to exploring this island some more and having some sweet adventures. Stay tuned as i now have wifi and will try to keep you updated regularly. Theres tons of pitures to work on but heres some of my faves so far......Enjoy!!

Who could ask for more?!

I sure cant!!! Well our adventure has officially began, we are now in Hawaii for 3/12 weeks. Its incredible to even think about and humbling to see how much God has blessed us with just being able to do this. So we have had our 1st full day in Kauai, the scenery is beautiful as always, and our time here has been awesome. Seems like theres a couple storms passing through here so the water is a little choppy and murky, snorkeling today was kind of a bust as far as shooting turtles or fish goes. So i shifted to shooting water instead, sounds weird but youll see in a minute. I did manage to get a few turtle shots when we 1st arrived though! Today i went out and shot some sunset stuff which was as always incredible fun! Well thats all for now and i know youre just here for pictures plus were getting up in a few hours to catch sunrise at the North Shore. So here you go....Enjoy!!
