We recently returned from a week on the Big Island of Hawaii. What a treat it was to experience the island lifestyle, witness beautiful sunsets, and drink some awesome guava juice!
Through my dad’s company, we were able to enjoy a mostly-paid-for trip to the Big Island. None of us had ever been to this island (and 3 of us had never been to any Hawaiian island), so this made for a unique experience that we won’t soon forget!
The whole island had such beautiful and unique vegetation, but we thoroughly enjoyed the scenery of the Akaka Falls rainforest:
One night, we attended a Hawaiian luau. That was a treat! Before the show began, we witnessed the uncovering of a pua’a (pig) which had been buried in a fiery sand pit that morning and had been cooking there all day.
One day, we stopped by this cute little side-of-the-road fruit stand.
I tried dragon fruit and boy was it good! So sweet!
These next two pictures were taken on the side of the road on a bridge that shook when cars zoomed by 😬
Ahhh what a wonderful trip we had! On the other hand it’s great to be back home where burgers don’t cost $18!!
“But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from the wrath of God through Him.”
~ Romans 5:8
