Leaving Parker Ranch we drove into Waimea, where we stopped for ice cream at Dairy Queen.
We had driven the high road (Route 190) from Kailau-Kona to Waimea. We drove the low road (Route 19) back home. It was all downhill to the ocean.
We made one photo stop on our way home. We stopped at Kekaha Kai State Park, which contains one of the few sand beaches on the island. Parking was scarce. We found a couple pull offs away from the beach, where we were able to take pictures of the beautiful blue water and the island of Maui in the distance.
We returned home around 4:30 pm and spent rest of the afternoon relaxing.
We enjoyed another beautiful sunset from the lanai.
We ate dinner (leftovers) around 7:00 pm. Dorothy and I retired for the night at 9:00 pm. Bob came to bed later, although he had fallen asleep on a reclining chair before we had gone to bed. Thus concludes our first full day (Saturday, September 1) in Hawaii.
