S: John & Kathy in Kona, Hawaii - 2011

BC: Wonder-filled 35th wedding anniversary getaway! All our love, John & Kathy

FC: John & Kathy's Trip The Big Island of Hawaii 2011

1: On our way, First Class! WOW! Stopover on O'ahu.

2: ...look at the size of those cliffs!! | flying over the other islands...

3: Thank you for your service to our country, Karl. We LOVE you ! | Loving the view from our window!! | Middle: View of the "Mighty Moe" - USS Missouri, proudly anchored overlooking the USS Arizona. | Below: our first glimpse of the island of Hawaii. | Pearl Harbor | Left: Pearl Harbor on O'ahu.

4: Just a glimpse of some of the beautiful flowers in and around our place.... | ALOHA! | ALOHA!

5: Wyndham Kona Resort... What a gorgeous and restful setting!

7: So much beauty to be viewed - green plush areas surrounded by black lava! Our first meeting with the Green Turtles!

8: Traveling north, passing through black lava fields, we came into green paradise! At the northeast lookout, we are literally at road's end. So beautiful & lush!

10: Warm coastal waters, ideal for snorkeling!

11: Cruise ships stop every Wednesday, dropping off shoppers to visit the 1.5 mile beachfront tourist community on Ali'i Drive, in the heart of Kailua-Kona . The smell of Plumeria pleasantly flooding the senses...

12: Romance is in the air.... | We had a lovely dinner out at Bubba Gumps, sitting on the edge of the beautiful Pacific Ocean. A large Eagle Ray entertained us after our meal, grazing along the shoreline directly in front of us!

13: Dinner out, great meals, quiet walks, beautiful sunsets.....

14: Island Wildlife | Eagle Ray looked like a shark's dorsal fin at first! Outrageously colored Geckos and beautiful ornamental songbirds were visible regularly.

15: Flowers & Surf | Finally capturing the photographer in action!

17: AH ! | ...and no, this was not at our resort... after taking photos, I (Kath) turned around to find John "waiting" for me...on another hotel's hammock. I followed suit! John says, "Ah, the good life!"

18: John: I did my "one-step'" jump here - without mask & snorkel on; it appeared to be 4' deep... what a mistake! Panic set in when I discovered it I couldn't touch bottom as it was 7'-8' deep, wave after wave washing over me. Won't do that again! | City of Refuge We snorkeled here, alongside turtles and loads of exotic tropical fish. Note from John: we found out later my "one step" entry was actually called "two step" for a reason - there is a two step entry nearby AND the snorkeling area was for "advanced snorkelers". Kath sure enjoyed snorkeling there!

19: Coastal view of Kona area from hills above.

20: Relaxed & Refreshed ! | Heading home, First Class, we feel like royalty! Lovely time away together!

21: "Mahalo" is thank you in Hawaiian...how do we say thank you for such a wonderful time and trip - we don't know, we're still trying to figure out how. ~ Thanks so much! | Aloha and Mahalo!
