Diamond Head

Today, Taris went to work and the rest of us hiked to the top of Diamond Head Crater.  It was a great hike, but there was a lot of vog in the air.  (Vog: volcanic smog)  The view wasn't as great as it has in the past, but our company was still impressed.

They've landed!

Our first visitors of 2012 arrived today.  Jim and Beejae, Taris' parents, arrived on island this afternoon and will be vacationing with us for the next 16 days.  We have a very full schedule.  I am so excited to have people at the house!  Tourist activity here we come!

Here is the itinerary for their trip.  It was sitting in a welcome basket full of local macadamia nuts, North Shore chocolate, and water.
