The Big Island of Hawaii

Posted: 08/09/2011 by goodie in travel, Uncategorized, Vacation

Last week I was out of town enjoying vacation on the Big Island. We stayed in downtown Kona but pretty much toured around the entire island. We had an incredible time checking out beaches, waterfalls and other highlights of the island. I was lucky enough to snorkel with wild dolphins and Annika and I also got kicked out of the water because of a recent shark sighting. Here are some pictures of our adventures.
