Snapshots from the Big Island

Saturday at Cochon Island (the first Cochon 555 to take place in Hawai’i :)…

…that top photo was taken seconds after the boys dug that pig from the imu. 

For dessert? Honey-dipped malasadas topped with caramelized bacon and ice cream sandwiches made from ham bone ice cream and marshamallow-lard cookies.

Along the Kohala Coast, breezy afternoons at the Mauna Kea Beach Hotel

…and Four Seasons Hualalai

That moment right before the sun goes down, my favorite part of the day.

Lunch at the original Merriman’s in Waimea for kalua pig saimin… 

….and avocado poke bowls with garlic-mac nut rice.

A visit to two exquisite tea plantations..what a dream. The future of Hawaii’s tea industry is looking bright.

Thank you, Big Island! Can’t wait to return.

    Ahh, so many good memories! The Big Island is a favorite. The Orchid at Mauna Lani – now the Fairmont Orchid – is still my favorite place to sit and relax at with a lava flow. :) Thanks for sharing the lovely pics!
