Hilo Japanese Gardens

After a very peaceful and relaxing Father's Day of pan flute,

reading and turtle watching, today we hoofed it into town a few miles and spent most of the day hanging out at the Hilo Japanese Garden.  The garden is on Hilo Bay, so its waters rise and fall with the tides.  Very simple, but so beautiful.  We have notice mongoose everywhere we go - so many.  Today was beautiful - very warm in the sun (making it a little too warm to be walking the volcanic sidewalks for miles,) cool in the shade and thank goodness for the breeze.  A quick stop at Coconut Island, a very small island park where kids go to swim and sun, gave us an opportunity to watch the fun in a small cove.

Late lunch at Ed's new favorite place The Hilo Burger Joint.  Actually happy hour is his favorite part of the place.  1/2 price beers; $3.  Caprese burger; basil leaves, fresh mozzarella, tomato and balsamic...yuummm.  A bus ride home will end this day with an early bed time. ;)
