The highlight of Day 3, at least for me, was the stark beauty of the Volcanoes National Park. I think I’ll let the pictures do the talking for this one. This is definitely somewhere I’d like to come back to and do some hiking.
Other places on our tour included a macadamia nut factory – not especially exciting for someone from Queensland. Macadamias are, after all, also known here as Queensland nuts.
A visit to an orchid farm – nice but no point in us buying anything. Customs would take a dim view of us bringing plants home.
A stop at the Rainbow Falls but no rainbow to be seen today,
and a drive around “downtown” Hilo which looks like it’s not too touristy. My type of place.
And what better way to end the day than with an embarrassing pic of your sister?
