Mike was feeling even worse, having been up throughout the night and serenading us with songs of the sickly that morning 😬
There was a big christmas craft fair going on in Hilo and Mom wanted to go to it, so the sister and I tagged along.
Mike decided to come too, wanting to get out of the house, though he looked like a much sadder version of his usual self 😬😜
The whole thing was christmas themed, holiday decorations filling some booths and holiday tunes in the air. It’s a weird atmosphere for us tropical weather vacationers 😜
I got a wooden sign saying ‘Aloha’ from Simply Signs and I’m hoping it will go somewhere in our entryway 😊
I also wanted this one, but decided to against it… for now 😏😜 Continue reading “Specimens, In And Out Of The Zoo”

Nothing beats a warm tropical morning with coffee, feasting ones eyes on lush greenery and a blue pool, with humid salty breezes brushing away cares, to start ones day 🌤☕️👌🏻🌴🌺📖
We planned on hanging out at our place for the majority of the day, as it was supposed to be a sunny one and it seems like rainy days are more popular on this side of the island.
Mike was going a little stir crazy at the idea of a SECOND day spent at the house (so weird 😜) so he and Dad went to Hilo to sign Mike up as a second driver on the rental vehicle and they passed some time there by getting groceries and I’m not exactly sure what else 😏
Pro and I walked around the yard, searching for wild flowers for a photo I wanted to take, wishing from deep within ourselves that we too, could have yards with such flowers naturally flourishing at our fingertips.
Mom made us breakfast, which was sporting the cutest little bananas, also picked from within the yard😏🍌🍳🍞🍴
Between the bouts of clouded over skies and rain and even some moments of pure sunshine whilst it rained, (which is odder to be in than it may sound) we spent the afternoon poolside.
Later that afternoon Mike, Mom, Pro (the sister whose nickname, not real name, is Pro 😜) and I decided to go check out ‘Kaimū Beach’ aka, ‘The New Black Sand Beach’ which was supposed to be fairly close by and have an interesting story behind it.
If you consider 80 feet of lava, covering an entire beach front-village area, interesting 😳🌋 Continue reading “Scent-sational Experiences!”
