Sorensens See Hawaii {day 8}

February 18, 2017

I finally got my macadamia nut pancakes and they did not disappoint!
The one problem with the Big Island is that it's SO big!
There's not a lot of places close by so it's more of a trip to get what you want.

We headed to Ken's House of Pancakes in Hilo.
Definitely worth the wait! 

After breakfast we went to the Hilo Farmer's Market.
We did a little shopping, had a delicious lilikoi drink and enjoyed the morning.
The avocados were probably 10 inches!
The picture does not show the size!

After the market we walked around Hilo for a bit.

Then we went to Rainbow Falls and the Boiling Pots.

Then we headed to the Liliuokalani Gardens to let Hunter run wild.
He had a ball running and splashing in every puddle he could find.

We stopped at Walmart to get some souvenirs then found a place to have dinner.
We just searched and lucked out at a delicious place called Kaleo's.
I had chicken katsu and it was to die for.
We sat out on the patio and had a great night.
Hunter was so good and loved my chicken (chicken nuggets as he called it) too!

Sorensens See Hawaii {day 7}

February 17, 2017

Today started out with the usual...

Then we headed to Volcano National Park again.
We went to the crater view and debated crossing it later in the trip.

Then he headed to see the Sea Arch.
It was so so hot out there on the black lava.
It was a pretty view and we even saw whales.

Hunter fell about 100 times.
Poor boy is going to have scars from this trip.
But it didn't stop him!

We went and had Tuk Tuk Thai trick for lunch
and I might say this is the best Thai food I have ever consumed.

After lunch we met everyone again to go through the Lava Tube.

Then we headed to South Point.
The southern most part of the United States.

Look close at the dolphins in these next pictures!

We watched an incredible sunset and enjoyed playing and watching the dolphins.
Perfect end to a fun filled day!
