Big Island of Hawaii

We made it to the Big Island Vacation House! It has it's own website at http://www.bigislandvacationhouse.com/, very cool house. It has awesome views and is just a big great house. The kids love it because they have their own rooms and a bathroom. It is definitely different here from Oahu, it is more remote where we are staying. There are two main large "cities" they are Hilo and Kona or Kailua-Kona. We are approximately 35 mi. south of Kona, but it is a curvy narrow road, and then after you get off the hwy, about 20 more minutes down to the house. We don't have broadband access here, only dial up so the pictures take up a lot of time to load. We are loving this place also, we have hiked to beaches and the volcano's recent lava flow. We hiked through a lava tube, went to the volcano winery, and ate lunch at the Lava Rock Cafe. Madi and I also tanned at the house's private beach, when we got too hot we rinsed off in the outdoor shower. Pictures coming soon...
