|Holuakoa Cafe Fish Dinner|
Our last afternoon as we waited for our red-eye flight back to the mainland, we returned to Lava Java for a super fish sandwich. We also tried the fish sandwich and combo plate at an island-style restaurant called Sam Choy's, which has a really spectacular view and uses Asian and island flavors very nicely. Another night we ate at the Kona Brewing Company where there's no view at all, just a really long wait for a table, but where we enjoyed a good fish sandwich, great crabcakes, good beer, and nice pizza.
There were so many other beautiful things, and all fish sandwiches look alike, so I didn't keep photographing them. I'm not in Hawaii any more, so here are just a few that I love thinking about:
|At Holuakoa Cafe|
|At Hawaiian Tropical Botanical Garden, Hilo|
|Onomea Falls at the Botanical Garden -- everybody posts a photo of the falls!|
|Onomea Bay from the trail through the Botanical Gardens|
|The lily pond at the Botanical Gardens|
