We've spent a couple of nice days enjoying some relaxation and scenery on the Big Island of Hawaii. It's been nice to have a chance to partially adjust to the time change we'll have once we get to Australia. We decided to have one "busy" day and we visited Volcanos National Park and explored the volcanos and lava tubes.
I don't think I'd provided a link to my flickr site in my prior posts. All of the Australia Trip pictures will be within one "collection" but divided into separate "sets". I would suggest bookmarking the Australia Collection, then I will provide links to new sets (probably organized by specific location most of the time (ie. Hawaii, Port Macquarie, Thailand, etc...)

We have 2 more days (Today and Tuesday) that we plan to spend doing as little as possible--beach, pool, sleeping, etc. There may be a trip to Hilo, but even that looks like it may not happen at this point. Then, we'll probably be out of contact with the world for a few days while we fly to Australia and onward to Port Macquarie and get settled in there. My license status is still unsettled, so it appears we'll spend a couple of weeks traveling in Australia before I actually begin working. But, at this point, that's fine. What comes will come...the anxiety of getting ready is gone and now it's all about the experience and adapting as new adventures and challenges come along.
