Quick Trip to Kona.

We took a quick 4 day trip to Kona to visit my dad. Day one was mostly travel, but we got a beautiful sunset even from the plane. The moon could even be seen in the top left corner. We took this to be a good sign for the upcoming trip.Screen Shot 2016-05-26 at 3.28.24 AM.pngAs soon as we arrived, we had to play with the dogs. My dad has the kind of relationship with his dogs like we have with ours.Screen Shot 2016-05-26 at 3.30.32 AM.png

The  weather may have been a little wet, but the temperature was a bit higher than it was in Anchorage. The trip also included a lot of fruit. Papayas from the yard or lilikoi mimosas, fruit was a major part!Screen Shot 2016-05-26 at 3.30.41 AM.pngScreen Shot 2016-05-26 at 3.32.13 AM.png

We threw in a quick stop at End of the World for some cliff jumping.Screen Shot 2016-05-26 at 3.32.58 AMScreen Shot 2016-05-26 at 3.33.08 AM

What is a trip to Kona without Scandinavian shave ice? Ice cream, yes, azuki, no thanks.Screen Shot 2016-05-26 at 3.34.17 AM.pngStandard Kua Bay Instagram picture? No problem:Screen Shot 2016-05-26 at 3.35.31 AM.png

More fruit please. Sure let’s just grab mangoes from the yard. Complete with post beach sunburn.

One day we headed to Kamuela on the way to Waipio. We needed roping and history lessons.Screen Shot 2016-05-26 at 3.37.02 AM.pngScreen Shot 2016-05-26 at 3.37.54 AM.pngScreen Shot 2016-05-26 at 3.38.29 AM.pngNot enough beach time? Thinking that Alaska is chilly? Might as well get to Hapuna while it isn’t raining!Screen Shot 2016-05-26 at 3.39.15 AM.pngThe last day, Dad dropped us off at the airport and we had another killer sunset all the way home.
