Hi Reid - Nice pic's, 330am, that's tough - I'd be in a fog the whole day.


I was thinking of taking advantage of the discount airfares as well to take a vacation and fly to Hilo. But 3:30am to make the "bread" flight changed my mind. Great photos Reid!!! Looks like you had really nice weather during your visit. The City of Refuge is a very solemn place. Everytime I visit there, I feel like the spirts are still lingering around.


Awesome Reid,

I loved the photographs and the review of the hanburger...Yum ;D


Beautiful, Reid - can't wait to see more!


Hi Kirk,

Thanks. And yeah, 3:30 am was tough especially as it started to get hot. I started to get really sleepy and had to have a quick nap at the beach.

Hi Lance,

This is actually the first time that I've ever taken a lot of photos at the City of Refuge. Normally, I feel like I shouldn't. I tried to get tickets to both Lihue and Hilo, but I couldn't get them in time. *sigh*

Hi Milgwimper,

I glad you enjoyed the photos. The review of the burger is up now!

Hi Cathy,

I'm glad you enjoyed the photos. I don't really have too many more that are worthy of posting. =(


Here's a tip... when going to the Punalu'u bakery ask for "fresh" bread. When I lived out there, my friends who work there said that they don't bake fresh on Fridays and you will usually buy flash frozen bread that is thawed.


Hi Dean,

I was actually at the bakery on Saturday, around 12:30 pm. I'm not sure if they had fresh bread available as I just took a loaf off the rack near the cash register. When I ate it, it tasted fresh though. I'll remember to ask for fresh bread next time I'm there. Thanks for the information.

    Most of the newer photos on this site are being taken by this camera. I'm still learning how to use it, but I think the photos it takes are amazing. Though the lens I use often varies, many of the photos on this site are taken with a Canon EF 35mm f2.0 lens.

    Sony Cyber-shot® DSC-U40

    A majority of the photos on this site were shot using this little camera. It was compact and discreet -- excellent for taking photos under most conditions. Sadly, it has recently died.
