I love breakfast in Hawaii. We have had the most wonderful papaya every morning.
Today we drove north up the Hamakua Coast. We took several detours paralleling the highway on the old road and stopped at sites along the way. We took a short hike to Akaka falls.
There is beautiful lush vegetation along the narrow old road.
We also stopped at Laupahoehoe Point and memorial. A terrible tsunami hit the Hawaii coast in 1946. On this small peninsula 21 schoolchildren and three adults were killed by the tsunami.
For dinner we had pizza in Hilo at Pesto Cafe.
