As I alluded to in the last post, we went to Hawaii last month. And I finally downloaded the last of the pictures off my camera over the weekend. All the photos are up on Flickr now if you haven't already seen them. We were there for Sam's best friend TJ's wedding, which was on the most perfect patch of grass on the beach at sunset. It was beautiful, and it was a lot of fun being at a wedding with under 20 people, as we really got to know everyone over the 24 hour span between the rehearsal dinner and the wedding. And the rest of the time, we got to explore the Big Island. Its really a tropical paradise. We had a great hike in the caldera of the volcano at Volcano National Park, explored the coastline thoroughly by car, stayed at a beautiful bed and breakfast in Hilo, toured an amazing botanical garden and swam with the fishes on the Ironman course in Kailua Bay. Altogether a wonderful vacation.
