Big Island Trip Continued

If you've kept up, you know that we saw volcanoes on our first day on the Big Island of Hawaii.  On the second day, we did a drive around to see the Farmer's Market and water falls around Hilo Town.
The Farmer's Market was fabulous! The produce was beautiful, the flowers were amazing and there were local artists there selling their products.

If I lived there, I would buy my weekly produce there every week. Here are a few photos of the farmer's market.

We found a hippy pottery guy that was selling some beautiful hand thrown pottery, and it was cheap! I bought two pieces. One is a beautiful bowl that has glazing made from volcanic ash and a matching "canister" (not sure that's the correct description) I will use it to be my cooking tools.

Here are some photos of the waterfalls.
The last day we were there we just slept in, had a little breakfast and hit the airport. It was a great trip. I wish we had more time there that weekend.
