Geo: 21.3047, -157.858Data work occupied our morning. I woke up slightly before 7am and immediately began communicating with Mr. Peabody. Around noon, I started running errands. We left home for the airport sometime in the late afternoon; Pas drove us down. Check-in was rather easy. I went from there to purchase a card and stamps to post to Paul. Air New Zealand paged us twice while I was gone, and Mum nearly had a "hemorrhage" waiting for me. We boarded, quickly, and rather early. The flight was quite empty, which was nice. Mum and I both managed to find three seats each to stretch across. In Honolulu, we wandered around the airport, and I posted a car to Paul. It was all rather dull. Reboarding the aircraft, we were worried that our seats would be given ... read more

Geo: 20.5721, -157.527It had been a pretty cold night in the car and when I woke up Ard was awake, too. Then I went into the backseat with her and read with a flashlight. Ardie and I could see some big waves so we went out to get some close-up views. When I came back we left for Kona. When we got there we had breakfast then we looked around at the shops. When we got back to the car we started out for Hilo at the other end of the island. On the way we stopped at a beach where the waves were real big and then we stopped at Akaka Falls. On our way we took some sugarcane then we stopped at Kaumano Caves which were very wet. There was also a "fall-out" sign. ... read more

Geo: 19.429, -155.249I woke up at 4:00 Hawaii time! But 7:00 LA time. My sister and I played games for a long time in our room (we had a kitchen, a large room with a hide-away bed, a bathroom, and a room which Ardie and I slept in). At 8:00 we had breakfast then we went to see Rainbow Falls. After that we went to see the lava trees which are formed during a lava flow when the lava comes to a tree and swirls around but before the lava could drip off the moisture in the trees cooled it and as a result the tree has a very thick coat of lava. Then we went to look at the volcano craters on Mauna Loa. Then we went to find a campsite. First we looked at ... read more

Geo: 19.7297, -155.09From morning to 12:00 in school. Come home at 12:00 get ready. Go to airport. Meet Dad. Ruth Marie, Dorothy, and Walter came to say goodbye to us. In the plane we had dinner of steak, rice, beans, milk, salad, and ice cream. Also met a man across the aisle who was very nice and pretended to be our uncle. Landed in Honolulu but couldn't get off. Only about 20-30 people on the plane from Honolulu to Hilo. Arrived at Hilo airport. Rented a car and went to the Dolphin Bay Hotel. On the plane, these are all firsts: ate on a plane, first time on DC-10 wide body jet, on the plane we were given earphones and we could tune into many different stations. After about half the flight was over we got ... read more
