If it’s Tuesday, it must be Hilo. We walked off the ship and took a free shuttle to the Farmer’s market, walked the main street for a couple of hours, went into the shops along the ocean area, ate some ice cream, and caught a cab back to the ship.
After the buffet breakfast, we headed out for our Kauai excursion to the Waimea Canyon, on an air conditioned bus. Our driver was very knowledgeable, and gave us a good description of the scenery along the way, stopping for us to buy souvenirs, use restrooms, and get refreshments. We even saw a small blowhole, and a lot of wild roosters along the road. The “Grand Canyon of the Pacific” was amazing, and we thoroughly enjoyed the view. The restrooms were not the best, so I advise using one on the last stop before the Canyon.
