Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park Day
After our second full day on Hawaii we were ready for one of our longest days in the car. We drove down to Hawaii's National Volcano Park. It is quite a drive so we left fairly early on the Sunday. We had a few stops to make on the way there so that broke it up but we still got back around dark. One of my favorite things from the whole trip was stopping off at PUNALU'U Bake Shop. We got there before it opened and so we wandered their gorgeous gardens there while smelling their Hawaiian sweet bread baking. Heavenly. Then when they opened we bought some breakfast and sat around eating while we took turns browsing their gift store. It was such a pleasant time I really didn't want to leave. But I corralled the group and off we went.
