...and by sitch I mean: Situation. I have waaaay more photos from my trip home. I can't NOT post photos of Hilo. It just feels sacrilegious. I also can't just cram them all into one post - I mean, where's the fun in that?! So gear up for seeing them every now and then!
Day Two in Hilo began with a quick jaunt down to Coconut Island.
Coconut Island is Hilo's picnic GO TO. In fact, it's such a go to place that on the weekends you may be hard pressed to find a blanket spot! There is usually an impromptu game of some sort on the large lawn - touch football, volleyball, or maybe even soccer. There is an old tower that is the perfect place to launch yourself like a canon ball into the water. It's the perfect place to go fishing with the kids. There are some pavilions for covered parties as well but, you better book these early - they go fast! In fact, I had a really fun birthday party there when I was a kid. All that goodness set aside, the best part of Coconut Island are it's views of Hilo Bay!
