Hawaii at its best

We have finished the events planned in Hawaii. WOW!!!! That sums it up.
I found a new friend, Lauren, on this trip. We had both both some scrapbook stuff and we worked on a page for her ann a project for Kelly Jo's challenge for me. She had more old stuff to work with and some of the older paper which had a pet theme. I don't have a cat, so I made a cigar box lid for her. Scrapbookers find each other everywhere and are always so friendly.
On Thursday I went on an off road pinztrek adventure. we went in a strange looking vehicle and went through the rainforest on the north end of the island. We saw beautiful Kohala coastline sites and waterfalls that you had to walk to see. It was totally fantastic. we saw the coast, the rain forest, waterfalls, and one place where you looked to one side and saw the ocean and the edge on the island with the ocean on the other side.
Friday I went to the business meeting and we heard from Will Steger, an adventure and scientist. He studies the ice melt at the artic. His talk was very interestesting.
Then, the final speaker was former President George H. Bush. Regardless of your politics, he was a very engaging speaker. He looked frail, but his speech was wonderful.
That evenirng the sunset was a show on its own. Our dinner that night consisted of the specialities of all 8 restaurants on the resort. At 8 they put on a fabulous fireworks display followed by a concert by The Steve Miller band. What a couple of days.
