After the International Market touristy area, we went down to the waterfront and hit this farmers market.  Paul was picking up a bunch of fruit.  I guess he needs fiber.  I just eat cheese and taffy. :o

Then Dean took us up to a view spot on his mountain, Hualalai.  

HawaiiII-108.jpg

Hualalai, looking east.  Sorry for all the wires in the shot.  The forest gets smaller at this altitude.  The huge Ohia trees are now just shrubery here at 5000 ft.

Here's a look at our first movie, click on the link:

Wow! Yeah.  I'd hate to be on your bad side (which is right in front of you looking at your face).  Stop bickering and stay on topic before you get our thread banned, putanganamo.
