Started the morning with a buffet breakfast on board the ship...soooo many choices....had to try 'em all!
An organized shore excursion today.
First stop was at Rainbow Falls...yet another of the hundreds of Hawaiian waterfalls.
Second stop at the Mauna Loa Macadamia Nut factory...the worlds biggest supplier of the nuts. The gift shop was open (of course), but the factory tour was closed (Nuts!).
Third stop was at the Akatsuka Orchid Gardens. Very pretty flowers. 'Nuff said
Next stop was at the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park where we viewed the active crater (from a distance) and then on to a much older inactive crater with a lava tube to walk through...all in a lush rainforest setting. So cool!
Final stop at the Hawaii candy factory...lots of Macadamia chocolate in my souvenir bag now!
ABBA on tap for tonight.
