Sunday in Hawaii

Today we were so happy to sleep in.  Whew!  It was a busy couple of days and a little relaxation was definitely in order.  Slept in a little, got up and made some breakfast and mosied on up the east and north shore to make sure we didn't miss one single piece of the island.

Stopped at Kilauea Lighthouse on the way.  Kilauea Lighthouse is one of the nations most intact historic light stations and has been a wildlife refuge since 1985.

 The lighthouse itself is in the process of being refurbished.

Ate at Bubba's Burgers in Hanalei. Oh my GOODNESS!  Delish.  They don't make 'em fancy, just ketchup, mustard and relish and cheese if you want, but they are awesome!

Taro fields on the way back.  People don't eat much poi anymore, so there isn't a big need for the taro plant, which in turn is hurting the eco system because some birds actually live in these wet fields, but because the fields are going away, so are the birds.

And of course the day would not be complete without visiting the beach.

Well, who doesn't?
