Hilo is the largest town closest to us, but it takes about 45 minutes to drive there. We tried to avoid going there by shopping in Pahoa, but there’s only two small grocery stores here and no fresh fish. We made several trips to Hilo—these are some of the pictures from our various travels to town.
One of our trips to Hilo was for the Farmer’s Market. We had heard that there are a lot of fresh tropic fruits for sale in that one location.
Another trip to Hilo included the Table Tennis Tournament that I entered– considering that I am only a beginner, I didn’t do too badly– I didn’t have a “0” in any of my matches.
We tried looking for fresh fish in Pahoa, but none could be found. We heard about a fish market (Suisan) in Hilo, so we went there to see what they had– they had a lot of colorful fish.
After buying some locally-caught Wahoo fish, we had a “cookout” on Coconut Island.
Then we went to Rainbow Falls– located in Hilo!
