King K statue in Bishop Park in Hilo, HI. We spent one day on the east side of the island, including the city of Hilo. Bishop Park was a special place. It was in this area that the entire Japanese settlement in the city was wiped out in the tsunami which occurred on April 1, 1946. I would like to go back to Hilo. The downtown area is still composed of old wooden buildings. This side of the island gets over 100 inches of rain per year, so everything was nice and green.
I need a vacation to recover from my vacation! I'm not getting organized very fast. Working everyday isn't helping matters any. Plus I had a dentist appointment yesterday. I don't have a day off until Sunday. Hang on! I have lots of pictures and stories to share.
