On Friday, we docked at the town of Hilo, from the big island of Hawaii. When you left the ship, there was a bus to take us downtown. But the bus had already gone, and there were lots of people waiting. I jumped in with another couple, and took a cab back and forth - $5 each way.
I walked up to McDonalds to use the computer. Then I walked down to their farmers market. Due to the over 125 inches of rainfall annually, lots of flowers, and you could take a bouquet back to the ship.
I bought some lemon butter - $6 for a small jar. At home, I put it in pastry shells - very good.
Then went shopping, bought some postcards, and went to the Post Office. I had lunch at McDonalds, walked back downtown, and then caught a cab with another couple back to the ship.
If I come again to Hilo, I might check out the bus schedule, and take a bus trip around the island.
