A Beautiful Week With Family

 Today we are concluding a wonderful week of Stransky family reunion.

Among other fun activities (like eating and watching sports together), we toured and Big Island and saw such scenic wonders as:

Halema'uma'u at Kiluea Volcano (Volcanoes National Park)

 Sharing the mana'o

Waipi'o Valley (Valley of the Kings) on the Haumakua Coast
*this* is my little sister's "goofy" face!

Carolyn's boyfriend and Ikaika were pretty much inseperable the entire trip.  They kept busy doing, you know, manly things.

Beth and I hiked the hot, hot Kona Coast.  Ikaika said he also wanted to hike.  Turns out what he meant was "ride along".

Pu'uhonua o Honaunau (City of Refuge).  The unanimous, hands-down favorite spot on the island. 

More than enough brotherly love to go around.

A sunset from Mauna Kea beach.

View from the Four Seasons Hualalai - a place that not only looks 'totally beyond my price range' but also inappropriate for where I'm at in life (we are more 'Hilton Waikoloa' right now!)
