Hawaii 2015

During the last week of July 2015, Dick and I did a family vacation with the Blomquist and Livengood families at Poipu Beach on the island of Kaua’i. There were ten of us altogether!

The vacation started with a 5K race that was part of the annual Koloa Plantation Days celebration. Everyone participated! The picture below shows everyone in the group, including the “shadow” photographer, who would be me.

As a group of ten we often took up a lot of table space, as you can see from the following picture, which was taken in the Ono Family Restaurant in Kapa’a.

Our other activities included hiking Waimea Canyon, visiting the National Tropical Botanical Garden and Keahua Arboretum, swimming in the resort pools and in the ocean, and eating shave ice.
