Happy New Year!

Our family celebrated with a non-traditional Christmas in 2018.
We traveled to Honolulu where we stayed three nights then took
the Norwegian Cruise on the Pride of America, Dec. 22 - 30.
The above photo was during the day at Hilo on the Big Island of Hawaii on Christmas Day.
 We are on a beautiful new black sand beach created when the lava flowed
into the ocean during the 2018 volcano. 

The palm trees were planted shortly after the lava flow by early hikers
 to mark the trail after the lava cooled enough to hike into the area.
We passed several locations where steam was rising from the lava.
Daughter, Melissa, arranged a private tour for our family through Big Island Tours (see below)
Gil was our driver/guide.  This was my favorite day.  More to come.
