Every once in a while, everyone needs a little Aloha. You can feel it in a warm summer breeze, the sweet smell of a flower, or the kind smile of a stranger. Those little things that make you remember the island life. Lay back. Chill out. Hang loose.
These are words to live by.
I hope you enjoy some of my favorite shots of the flora and fauna I encountered on my trip.
Our trail guide told us that this variety of ginger root was not native to the island and had become a bit of a problem for the natural ecosystem. So my father promptly decided to tear one out of the ground and gnaw on it. It was kind of hilarious.
