KOA (Kona Airport): Best Waiting Area

Especially when your flight is late - air conditioned and cold (but expensive) beer...

The Big Island of Hawaii: Rainbows and Sunsets






Hawaii Tropical Botanical Garden

We drove over to the other side of Kona the other day and discovered this garden.



Since we like food, we were interested many different varieties of ginger. It's a fairly spectacular garden squeezed into a reasonably compact location.





A stand of bamboo impressed us...



Blossoms everywhere...





The resemblance is clear...







Something new every few feet...







This many palm trees?





Ocean views...



More blossoms...



And trees...





Strange shapes...



A great place to visit...

Kona Bound

Maybe via Portland? Rumors abound. Yup, to make sure there's enough reserve fuel.

Yes, we landed in Portland to top up the fuel reserve, due to headwinds. We landed at Kona an hour late and Alaska gave everyone on board a $100 flight credit. 

They can divert us anytime they want for a hundred bucks.
