Amazing resort, Wendy! Wow, my mouth's watering just looking at that buffet spread!

The Wife and I don't have the opportunity for much in the way of getaways with the kids, but Hawaii's on the short list for a future anniversary. We're going to try and make a quick trip to DisneyWorld in the spring, and this is the first time that we'll go knowing about Trader Sam's! We try to take a cruise every few years out of Galveston, and have gotten to see much of the Caribbean that way. Jamaica made the biggest impression (we hired a guide to take us to non-tourist destinations, which were equal parts heartbreaking and inspirational). Smith Cove in Grand Cayman was absolutely sublime. We also love Mayan ruins, and Uxmal was simply overwhelming, Tulum is as beautiful as the images suggest, Xunantunich mysterious... all fantastic. I wish I'd paid more attention in Spanish class back in the day, because we'd love to spend an extended time down there. The Wife's a professional photographer, so that's taken us down there on occasion to the Dominican Republic as well for destination weddings. Not as glamorous as it sounds, but it's a neat way to see different parts of the world.

hang10tiki there was even more I didn't photograph. The juice bar where I mixed my own POG each morning.

Prikli Pear Dan majored in Spanish and Italian in college. When we traveled almost everyone spoke English, even in Spain and Italy. I love travel Dan loves to stay home. I'm lucky he lets me drag him places. I like your story.

=================

Kona is the dry side of The Big Island. To find a tropical paradise you need only to tour each hotel. That is how on a prior trip I found this one.

After breakfast on Day two we decided to explore the grounds of the hotel to see if it were the same as we remembered from 12 years ago. It was even better.

It was pretty funny to see the yoga class underway in the turtle lagoon.








Inset into the foliage were many outdoor spa areas. I talked Dan into a photo in a deserted one.











A tree house spa area.








We were able to do our tour without anyone around because it was so early in the morning. However during the 5 days we were there was had many walks alone and everyone was this beautiful. This is why I picked this hotel the Fairmont Orchid.

Cheers, Wendy

Wendy,

Beautiful pictures. I'm going to the big island next year and I am going to look into staying there.

hang10tiki next I hope he works on that face!

MaukaHale that hotel for the Kona side and another one for the Hilo side. The 2 hour drive back and forth is too hard so splitting the time is a good idea. You'll see in the rest of my photos.

====================

I just finished posting and accidentally erased all of my post. I'm starting over again.

Day two continued with a 1 mile trip to a new shopping area that wasn't there on our last trip 12 years ago.

You can imagine our surprise to find this huge tiki art gallery.


Not only that the owner is the person to start the first annual Tiki Festival with all of our friends art!


So after a few photos


outside we ventured in and


we found Kozy there and had a great visit.


We found the art of Big Toe,


Robert Jimenez and


Rober Jimenez in a second room.


Then a wall of little lost tiki Ken Ruzic. Just a WOW all around.


When we left him we first used a 2 for 1 coupon and road on 9 4D rides. That saved us $20/ They were great and the best one was Penguin Express because it also had comedy. We both had a great time with these bumpy rides.


Then we went to the Tommy Bahama store and I found a shot glass with a gold peanut mug on it for $8. When we bought it they gave us a coupon to use in the restaurant upstairs.


Time for a late lunch with a beautiful view


over the tops of all the trees.


Dan's just so cute.


We used the coupon on a $19.50 coconut shrimp appetizer.


I fell in love with the crab salad. So for the next three days we asked for a coupon and took it upstairs for a late lunch. We just have a nut bar for dinner, that's our routine.


Kozy not only has a tiki gallery each night he puts on his master magician show.


His show is jaw dropping and fun.


It is in the gallery and you are allowed to bring your own drinks. He supplies cold water which was just what we wanted.


The magic is up close and personal and couldn't be better.


I had the honor of being in a small part of his show.


After a long and over the top fun day we went back to the hotel for the night. Cheers, Wendy

PS watch the posts on fb for updates on the Tiki Festival by these artists. We were sad to have just missed the event.

Day three of our trip to the Big Island of Hawaii. 11/03/17

We left our hotel and drove South through the lava fields past Kona and onto


The Place Of Refuge. If you killed someone and ran fast enough to get hear you were home free and would not be punished.


The most famous angle for these two tikis. The crack up and disintegrate so they are re-done often but always in these styles.


Time for a few photos of Dan.





We stopped at a shopping center just before the Hilton and found a locked up carvers shop. These were outside


so we got a couple of photos.


Then it was time to return to our hotel for the night.


I'm ready to relax and read for the evening here at home, good night, Wendy

EnchantedTikiGoth so sorry I missed your post and just found it. That's really interesting about Tiki Bob and the coconut tree. I have made many Tiki Bobs with an enhances coconut tree body. I had only heard that he was based on a classic African mask with a white face. Must be both because of his white face and coconut rings around the body. No matter what he's in the history of tiki forever.

hang10tiki I already want to go back. This trip we used the "I'm sorry Hawaiian Airlines" coupons they gave us after the 8 hour delay on a prior trip. Next trip will be to Oahu most likely in 2019.
        
MaukaHale I will start todays post right now. Be back in a little while.

Here goes Day 4 on the Big Island of Hawaii.

Every morning starts with this excellent breakfast with garden and ocean views. There is another restaurant even closer to the ocean that is open for dinner. We think lunch is the best meal of the day so we never ate there. Live music too.


We went back to the room and found this moth on our balcony. We also have Gecko's.


Today we headed North to Hawi and other small towns to see if they had changed.


The small businesses were much the same but our favorite hippy restaurant was now gone.


A few more photos and then


we left the town and went home via a new faster road that


cut across rather than down and around. So many better roads now. Very windy but many great views.


On Kauai there is a famous tree tunnel. There are many more on the Big Island but this one was just two walls of trees.


Back home we stopped for lunch at Tommy Bahama's and used another coupon. What a treat.


They had a pumpkin decorating contest. Dan thought he looked like this warrior pumpkin.


I thought this one was out of the box!


Day 4 ended with relaxation and more walks around the grounds. 6 days to go.

Cheers, Wendy

Day 5 on the Big Island of Hawaii and our last full day at the Fairmont Orchid the best hotel of my life!

I just can't rave enough about these breakfasts with the stunning views. A real event for us.


Little birds are all around us posing for photos.


After breakfast we took a grounds walk. I never gets old.


I take photos non-stop of plants that will look good in my black velvet paintings. I love these colors.


Exploring we found a path that took us to our car.


It was now late enough for lunch so we got in the car and drove this road 1 mile to the shopping center.


I love bamboo and this gate will someday be in a painting or on a mug.


Our last meal at Tommy Bahama's. We used three coupons for a total savings of $60!


We went into the market and found my new favorite fruit. Dragon Fruit, pretty inside and out.


The next day we leave for 5 days in Hilo. It's been 12 years since we have been on this island so we will again be looking for changes since our last trip.

The Big Island Trip 2005.


Cheers, Wendy
