Hawaii Trip – Days 6 & 7

Wednesday was our last day with our entire family all together so we made a trip down into Waipio Valley. The tour wasn’t until later in the morning, so Micah made use of the time by going to play golf at a local course.

“Wild” horses – only in the sense that they aren’t owned by anyone & aren’t ridden since they were more than happy to come right up to our van!

We drove straight through the streams, because that is where the road goes!

A beautiful rainbow to end the day & finish out our week at the vacation house on the Waipio Valley (northwestern part of the island)

The next day, my brother & his family headed home for Christmas with my sister-in-law’s family & the rest of us headed out for a different vacation home on the southwestern part of the island

We took a tour of Anna’s Ranch. Anna was a very successful female rancher from the 1930’s & onwards. Her house has been preserved from that time period & it iss fun to hear stories about life in Hawaii back then.

Our next house & the view from the deck were very different from our first house as this one was located on an old lava flow!!!
