11. World Cruise–Hilo, Hawaii–Jan.25, 2017

Hi All, (Written Jan. 25, 2017)

Today we sailed into our first Hawaii Islands port, Hilo, Hawaii.  Hilo is the largest city (northeast corner) on the island of Hawaii.  Hawaii is the largest island of the Hawaiian  Islands and actually has more land area than all of the other islands put together.  Hilo is located near two shield volcanoes: Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea.  One of the two went active in 1998 and is still active today.

Since Susy and I have been to the Hawaii Islands several times, I thought I would throw in some pictures of those trips between this post and the post I’ll write for Honolulu, Oahu Island.  Here is one from our first visit in 1974:

Today at Hilo we just road into town and did some internet.  First I’ll show you some shots from the ship.  The port is far from the center of town.

That’s really all I have for Hilo.  Hope to show you much more in the next post where we overnight in Honolulu.  I already have a tour scheduled to the USS Arizona Memorial, which we haven’t seen despite the many times we have been here.

Love You All,

Gary (alias Gagu)
