Dateline April 11, 2011 Honolulu Airport

Aloha Hawaii!!!

The purpose of the trip to Hawaii was our nephew Clay Trauernicht’s wedding. It was also fun for us because we had the pleasure of meeting Talia and her wonderful parents, Rachael and Bernie last year when we were in Melbourne Australia. We spent several evenings together and had a blast. Clay was/is working on his PHD at the university in Hobart Tasmania and fortunately was in Melbourne the same time that we were.

Clay is John’s nephew, his sister Carols’ son and the oldest of the Wilson grandchildren. Sorry Nick, we did drive there in the RV and that is the story we are sticking to (ha)..

Lovely wedding on the north shore of Oahu, great time..here are a few family pictures

We headed over to the Big Island (Hawaii) for a week with the Wilson family.  We visited Akaka Falls, they were spectacular.

We kayaked a few miles in Kealakekua Bay, to Captain Cooks Monument.

At the beach Kealaakekua Bay

at a beach,  well it was a bunch of lava rocks, and went snorkling.

It was beautiful I have never seen so many colorful fish   in one place.

John and I did OK given neither of us had kayaked in years.

Flying home today, for those of you that did not know we are heading back to Florida to pack up our house into PODS and store our belongings..we have sold our house so we are now homeless!!!

More news when we continue our adventure the end of April!!
