Our travel track for Friday, May 8, 2015. Continued our exploration above the Waikoloa Resorts, all the way up to Hawi on the North Kohala Coast. Then back down Kohala Mountain Road to Waimea and across the Hawaii Belt Road back to Kailua Kona. Along the coast route of lower North Kohala the temperature was 92°F, at 3200 feet altitude on the North Kohala Mountain Road, the temperature was only 74°F. What a difference a few thousand feet make!!
Our travel tracks for our first full day on the Big Island. We drove up to Island Lava Java for breakfast, then checked out the Kailua Farmer’s Market followed by some shopping at Kona Commons before heading north to Waikoloa to check out King’s Shops and Queen’s Market before returning to Kailua-Kona and Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. for dinner and returning to the Sheraton Kona for the night….
Stopped at the Kailua Farmer’s Market after breakfast at Island Lava Java in Kailua Kona. Here are some views from outside and within the bowels of the tent complex…

Apologies to my faithful blog followers, I have been having problems with the posting of pictures from my phone me and tablet through the WordPress App. Therefore, posting has been more on Facebook… Now that we are on The Big Island, maybe things will be better 😉
Our Daily Travel Map for Oahu on May 5, 2015. Today, we drove down the windward coast, make a stop at the post office to ship some things home, stopped in Kaneohe again, then drove over the Pali Highway to Honolulu, made a wrong turn and got rerouted through some of downtown back on to H-1 to head out to the Ko’Olina Resorts on the leeward coast. Got tied up in traffic between Honolulu and the separation of H-1 and H-2 west of Pearl City/Aiea. Smooth sailing out to see the “new” resorts, then back tracked to the western highway to cross the island to Haleiwa and return to Turtle Bay… Nice drive except for Honolulu traffic….
