Yesterday we spent the day with my sister (Heather) and her boyfriend (Jeff) driving the road to Hana. We went hiking Pipiwai Trail in the Kipahulu area of Haleakala National Park to Waimoku Falls. They loved it and the falls were really flowing. We had dinner at Paia Flatbread Co. - a new pizza eatery in Paia.
Two views of the Road to Hana. the first image was shot around 11:30 Am and the second about 7:00 PM.

Today John and I left the house in hopes of doing a good deal of car shopping but we were hindered with news that our riding mower was arriving today instead of next Monday. We made it home 10 minutes before it arrived and we were thrilled to be getting it early only to find out after the delivery comapny left that it would not start! Sorry, no pics of me riding it today. We think they sent it to us with a dead battery since the headlights won't turn on. John called Sears and they told us to bring the battery in to test it and if it is bad they will give us a new one. UGH! So we did some palm trimming instead of unpacking and we were treated to an amazing double rainbow. Since I could not fit the entire rainbow into frame, I have included a short video clip of it here.
