Summer 2008 we went to Hawaii with our friends, Ned & Deana for a couple of weeks of sunshine and fun. We rented a house in Kaneohe which is located on the opposite side of Oahu from Honolulu. David was working on a coffee farm on the big island of Hawaii and he was able to join us. Here are some pictures.
