Glad to hear you are having a great time! My husband and I honeymooned in Hawaii and loved it - it is my absolute favorite place on earth. I can't wait to get back there someday.

i am jealous. beyond jealous..

It all sounds beautiful! I love the sea turtle pic. Enjoy the rest of your vacation!

Honu!!!! I love honu. I actually have one tattooed on my hip. Hawaii is a very addictive place. I love the lizards too. I hope you get a chance to swim with the honu. If not swimming with fish in tropical waters is always fun.

Sounds like a wonderful destination...relax and enjoy!

Yay, you spotted a honu. Now keep your eyes open for a monk seal. Those geckos are cute but they're an invasive species and pretty aggressive compared to the other geckos (which I think the green ones--Madagascar geckos--have eaten out of house and home). You should really visit North Kohala and especially drive along Kohala Mountain Road if you do nothing else.

My favorite Kona experience was snorkeling w/ the sea turtle w/ my sister-in-law. We had better luck at sunset than at sunrise, although it did mean skipping the actual viewing of the sunset. So fun though!

This is so nice..... thank you for sharing. I was born in Hawaii and lived there until I was about ten years old. One of my strongest and most fond memories are the fragrant Plumerias! Every May, kids on the island would climb plumeria trees and gather up the beautiful blossoms to make them into lays. I remember carefully using a plastic canvas needle to make mine and then storing them in the fridge until it was time for school. The schools would collect them for May Day and have them placed on the graves of all the soldiers buried on Oahu. Must have been Memorial Day come to think of it! I haven't been lucky enough to return to Hawaii but plan on it hopefully by next year.

I'll just live vicariously through you for the moment! Enjoy your stay and live it up! Aloha!
