A great way to see the Big Island of Hawaii is to take the Grand Circle Island Tour. We planned ahead to spend the day with Friends Ann (stamper Dog's agent) and Cecil Clemmer. It was a very nice day and we enjoyed it very much.
Here is Cecil and Ann Clemmer at one of our first stops the Black Sand Beaches.
Next Stop Volcano National Park…my question is why are we standing this close to an active volcano?
It is always such a treat to see Sarah Douglas. They did mention a light jacket or sweater would be nice, However a winter parka would have been welcome.
I suffer a bit from claustrophobia, and the Lava tubes were no exception. I was well into the tube before I realized it wasn't just a 15-20 feet. But clutching Tom's arm and a few tears I did make it all the way through. Now for me it was a major accomplishment and a highlight of the trip. Tom's arm has healed nicely from the claw marks.
Exit from the Lava Tube! I am alive!!
Our final travels took us through Parker Ranch. The ranch was founded in 1847 and is one of the oldest ranches in the US, pre-dating many mainland ranches in Texas and other southwestern states. Spreading approximately 135,000 acres Parker Ranch is also among the country’s largest.
Hawaii Make & Takes… yes while in the beautiful Island we did stamp. (I actually stamped about and hour and brought the rest home do do in the cold and snow!). The first two make and takes I am sharing today are made with the stamp set For All You Do to be released in the 2009-2010 Idea Book & Catalog.
If you have any questions about the make and takes just email me firstname.lastname@example.org
See you tomorrow!
