in the middle of our meal, we were approached by an older gentleman leaving with his wife - he came up to tell us he overheard joe & me talking to each other, & that we broke down his stereotypes today by being so happy & interesting. awesome.
we fielded a LOT of dreads questions while on the island - far more on maui than we were asked on the big island. anyhow, on to the pics!
joe laughed at me for bringing nine kinds of gum:
i liked how the clouds crowned the next island over:
more misty clouds over the mountains:
