Wrong Turn

I am here to tell you that you cannot fully rely on the wisdom of a GPS unit to guide you safely to your destination. We wanted to give Aidan a break from all day in the sun activities, so we decided to take a drive to upcountry. Thinking we’d head up to Parker’s Ranch and Wiamea. I located Parker’s Ranch in the Point of Interest category in the GPS and we were on our way. On our way along the tiniest two lane, middle of no where road I have ever seen. There were no road signs, no where to turn around, no nothing! So we kept driving along. Finally after nearly an hour we start seeing civilization. After a few minutes I realized we took the REALLY, REALLY long way down to Kona. Which was ultimately the exact opposite of where we intended to go. Oh well, we’re in Hawaii…right?

Diggin’ in the Sand

Tonight we got our crap together and finally made it to Wiamea. It is very different up there. It’s nearly 3000 feet in elevation so everything is green and lush. Very different from the coastal region.

Tomorrow we plan to scope out another beach, and enjoy not being in the car not knowing where we are going! 🙂

    The lack of street signs and nowhere to turn around sounds like New England–it’s *incredibly* annoying–our least favorite part of this little world.
    Cool pic and cute video. 🙂 Looks like Dad-Oh is always close at hand to rescue Aidan from any potential situations!
