Aloha everybody! From the Island of Maui.

We have just wrapped up our visit to the Big Island of Hawaii. I loved how peaceful,

and laid-back this island is.

My husband and I had visited the Big Island about 15 years ago before we had kids, and it was only for 3 days. So, this was practically our first time on the island of Hawai’i.

Surrounded by the island’s beauty, my index finger got a great deal of workout clicking away on my Nikon camera, and I flooded my memory card with new pictures.

I tried really hard to filter and re-filter my pictures, but I am afraid that I still ended up with too many of them to show you. Well, you might enjoy these:

A very large puffer fish. The Big Island offers some of the best snorkeling of all the Hawaiian islands.

Big Island often has beautiful sunsets.


Some romantic soul made good use of the black sand beach. She probably said yes…

These red bananas fascinated me. I had never seen bananas in this color before.

Great news! Next time your doctor tells you to eat more fruit and vegetable, go home and drink more coffee! As it turned out, the coffee beans aren’t beans at all. They are fruits of these trees!

Hibiscus flowers bloomed everywhere.

Come back soon, I will share more pictures from the Hilo side of the Big Island.
