The Waimea Valley Botanical Garden and Hike


On our second day, we decided to adventure into the botanical gardens next door (alright, but they were only a 5-minute drive away. That still counts!)

This was one of those deals where I took way too many pictures, so this 1st blog post back will be skimpy on words, but very rich in images. Enjoy!

I roamed the warehouse for 1 hour before I finally found the crowing jewel of the fair: adorable little macaroons.
