We tried something different for Thanksgiving this year. We rented a house on the Big Island of Hawaii for Jules & me plus our two sons, grandson and daughter-in-law. There was something for everyone.
We ate, maybe too much.
Watched the ocean
The three younger adults tried their hand at "Snuba"
Even Michael got into the water (more on this later)
Mark, Mimi and I experienced the ziplines up in Kohala.
The birdwatching was good in the yard of the house we rented.
Jules and I stayed with Michael while the other three drove around the island. Mark shared his pictures of that trip with me.
They stopped at Akaka Fall.
And experienced the volcano's glow after sunset
Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen's yacht "Octopus" was moored in the bay while we were there. It is the second largest privately owned yacht, though not quite as big as the Celebrity Century next too it. It even has a heliport.
Travel with a severely disabled person such as Michael is difficult but renting a house proved to be a good solution. The plane trip from California was a challenge but one his parents were willing to accept. We all got to be together and each had an opportunity to enjoy the island by trading off on the care giving.
