Day 4: Big Island Style


Today we decided to go driving and venture more parts of the island. Since we were starting kind of late in the morning, we decided to grab an early lunch. But first, let me take a selfie! As we waited for our car, Bob's friend was back in the lobby again!

Day 3: Big Island Style

We absolutely had a blast and I remember we said how great it would be to retire there. So when we started pondering ideas of where to go, we immediately said Hawaii. We almost felt like going to Maui again, as there was
