No place like it.

Greetings from the Big Island! We threw a trip together in, oh, 24 hours or less. First visit to the Mauna Kea, which we’ve heard great things about and so far, we are fans! Possibly the nicest stretch of beach we’ve seen in the islands.

They've closed the beach due to high surf today

Yes, it's Kona coffee!

We’ve quickly discovered that things are Bird Perfect here – just a few hours after we arrived yesterday, we came face to face with a wild turkey. And there is a lovely pair of macaws here, as well.

This is the hen - her personality make up for her looks...

And just to make us feel like we’re right at home, a kitty turned up at the breakfast table. Victoria gave him a saucer of cream. We thought the waiter would be angry, but he actually came over and whispered to us that Mr. Cat prefers salmon to anything else on the menu.

Our new feral friend

Don’t be jealous of us for the 80 degree temps and sunshine – it’s actually very hard work being here!

The man never gets a break...

    Aw – the Mauna Kea! I went there as a kid. I hope it’s just as lovely – sure looks like it.
