  • Go Visit Hawaii was awarded an honor by Homespun Honolulu.  This blog was rated "E – for Excellent".  Mahalo, Evelyn, for your support and encouragement!
  • And finally, as it’s St. Patrick’s Day, I’ll post a photo of something green.  Here’s a photo of the green pasture land on the Kohala Mountain of the Big Island.  I’ve been to Ireland and the rolling green hills along route 250 of Hawaii reminded me of the landscape of Ireland.

  1. BEAUTIFUL pic! Upcountry on any island is always my favorite! There’s something about feeling like you’re in the middle of pastures and rolling hills and then looking makai and seeing the ocean.

  2. Thank you, Angie. I like the Upcountry, too. In fact, I love the diversity of landscapes and climates in Hawaii, in general. I think that the Upcountry tends to surprise people that it’s really in Hawaii. It’s so different from the paradigm of palm trees and beautiful beaches. πŸ™‚
