... left to do... Tara is the farm "manager" of sorts. She was a wwoofer from The Bay Area who came out two summers in a row to this farm. She loved it so much she moved here in February and is now training under Bonnie (the owner) to run her own farm one day. She's young like us and super cool. Tara took us to the most picturesque and gorgeous beach today. Check out that panorama. I (Jack) am still astounded by the sheer beauty. I've never seen water so ...
I left Volcano around 8:30am -- it was a lovely day. Drove north to Hilo (took a quick tour of downtown) then up and over Saddle Road. It was cool but still clear.

Just when we thought we had seen the nicest scenery on the island (drive to Hilo and beyond), today's trip topped that by a long shot. We were ...
... then headed to the airport on the sky train. Got all checked in by 3:30 so grabbed some supper before boarding for the 5:30 departure. Flight over was uneventful, just long! We were sitting in aisle seats behind each other so didn't have much time to chat. By the time I checked in on line to select seats, the only ones together were in the last row of the plane so we decided to sit apart.
