hiking in Hawaii

Day Three

My brother and his wife went on a 7+ mile hike and we went for an “easy” hike. We did the Kiholo Trail. It was rocky lava and then a really nice sandy beach!

It was exposed and hot, but not too difficult. We saw a bunch of goats randomly. Actually, all through Waikoloa and Waimea we saw random wild goats on the side of the road.

The beach was secluded and empty and really beautiful.

After the hike we got lunch in Kona at Broke da Mouth Grindz. Michael got the fried chicken and it was AMAZING. I got the kalua pork and it was so so good! Not too salty, kinda smoky. Perfect. I ate half of it!

This day Logan was kind of the perfect child. He was adjusting to the time change I guess. He was an angel in the restaurant and for the whole day. Gold star!

Next up: the Beach!

We went to Anaeho’omalu Bay (A-Bay) at the Waikoloa Village and it was kind of the PERFECT beach! Free parking, huge lot, short walk to the beach, nice facilities. I definitely recommend going to this one.

There were some palm trees, a nice beach and perfect water (no big waves) and perfect for me to swim laps! So far I swam every day in the ocean and it was amazing!

We had dinner and local donuts by the fire pit in the backyard and then went to bed early. It was a nice day.

Day Two

Hawaii Day Two

We went for hike and it was the highlight of the trip. (Logan still talks about it.)

We went to the Makahi Street Hike up in Kalaoa. We were staying in Waikoloa Village and it was about a 30 minute drive up the mountain. The hike was easy to find and super fun!

We did the “Jurassic” trail! Logan loved it. He did so good too. It was like hiking in the jungle. Very pretty.

After the hike we stopped and grabbed sushi and ate lunch at the house and then went to Beach 69 for another beach afternoon.

Beach 69 was our favorite beach when we were in Kona before. This particular day the surf was pretty big. We did have fun, though.

Dinner was seared ahi tuna and salad. Logan was so tired he put himself to bed. πŸ˜‰

Had some fresh fruit. (Best pineapple ever!) Then my sister in law, Michael and I went in the hot tub and looked at the Hawaiian stars. It was amazing!
