Holualoa Farm and Ukulele Festival-Big Island Hawaii



It was a lovely morning in Hawaii Saturday morning and a couple of my friends and myself went to Holualoa to see the goings on in this quaint old town.

Mei making friends with a minature horse.  This little horse is a therapy horse and a former show horse. She was very patient with all the people who wanted to meet her.
I don't know what this flower is other than it is a type of succulent.  The picture does not do it justice. The bottom is a beautiful red and then much darker purple flowers.  They hardly looked real.


A little local color.  These orchids are sitting on the front porch of the Kona Hotel, otherwise known as the Pink Hotel.  It is quite old and is still in operation.
This is a landmark in this town that is in the middle of the Kona coffee belt.  In November this little town is the site for the Coffee festival art and coffee walk.


The Lilikoi Inn had a booth with this wonderfully carved watermellon. 
And what do you think of this plate of spaghetti salad?  It was very tasty.  You could have a forkful or buy a plateful.  They do catering and the book they had to look at mad your mouth water. 

This is a lovely vine of lilikoi. Aren't they just beautiful.  It is one of the sweetest fruits I have ever tasted.  You can eat them with a spoon out of the peel, make juice or put it in deserts.  I have had it on top of cheesecake and it was one of the best cheesecakes I have ever eaten.                                   
 I hope that you have enjoyed some of the pictures of the day here in Holualoa, Big Island of Hawaii.
