On Thursday, our plane landed on the big island of Hawaii at approximately 11:20 a.m. Hawaiian Standard time. So far, I would have to say that our time here has been absolutely glorious! We’ve done a lot already, and this is only our third day here. We’ve spent a good bit of time in Hawaiian Volcanoes National Park yesterday look at various old lava flows, craters and calderas. Unfortunately, there are no current lava flows, but it could start up again at any time, so we can check to get any updated information. Yesterday, we spent a few hours at the Botanical Gardens near Hilo. It was spectacular, and both of us just took our time shooting pictures as we walked through this lush garden. I’m going to share a few that my husband took. Mine will be uploaded later.

A very unique pink quill flower
Forgot the name of this one, but it is stunning.
