Day 11 the Last Day in Hawaii

This is it, the final post on our Hawaiin trip.  This post is going to be picture heavy because I have quite a few more pretty pictures I would like to share with you.  We started our last day out going to breakfast at a local coffee shop and had some wonderful food.  Half of our group decided we needed to spend a couple more hours on the beach before finishing our packing. This is Holoholokai Beach.  Each of the beaches we went to while on the Island were a little different along the shoreline.  This beach was more rocky.

 White coral and black lava rock all churned together.

After our beach time we quick packed our luggage and took one last picture in front of the home we were staying in.
Myself and my traveling companions.

We had a few hours before we needed to go to the airport so we did some last minute site seeing.

 This is Hawaii's first church, Mokuaikaua Church.

 And directly across the road from the church was the Hulihe'e Palace which was built by the second governor of the Island and was completed in 1838 a year after the Mokuaikaua Church was finished.  This palace was the favorite retreat for the royal families.

 I took a couple of pictures inside the palace before finding a sign stating no photography.  I'll just show you one of them, the lighting kept them from turning out so shhh....don't tell.

 We all received a lei on the way out of the palace.

 Had a great dinner at Quinns by the Sea.

Stopped at some gardens that were planted where the previous airport had been.

And watched our last sunset.

That isn't picture heavy...come on! I am glad you shared your trip with us Brenda. I loved it. You should put some pictures on your side bar so you can enjoy them later, like I did of Italy. I'm sure some people get tired of seeing them, but I figure it's a trip of a lifetime and I loved it.
