... human being; a big sweet teddy bear of a guy. We then got invited to Tara's friend's apartment right above the pizza joint. We hung out with some real hippy locals while they drank wine and played guitar in a little studio apartment. Proof that you never need much to be happy. *** Sunday was our last adventure day. We decided to kayak out to the Captain Cook Monument, which is the picture featured on the cover photo of this blog. We had no idea what a treat we'd be in for with this ...

Poor baby was down for the count. But even she said as the day wrapped up that it was such a perfect experience. What a trooper. We discovered today that Aloha ...
... green sea turtles. Success! Brie is in love with sea turtles, so she was in heaven. We continued up the Kohala Coast to the Waikoloa Resort area. We saw some awesome goats along the resort road, eating their expensive bushes and flowers and navigating the lava rocks alongside. Too funny. We had a nice supper there at Roy's, an upscale restaurant where Ryan remembers having his best meal ever at the one on Maui. It did not disappoint. :) Tuesday Great day today. We headed to the bay ...
