Big Island of Hawaii

As I have mentioned earlier, during the spring break we have visited the next island of Hawaii – Big Island. We spent 10 days overall there. I think it is a gold middle for how much to spend there – it is not to short, you have enough time to visit places and just to spend time on the beach.

Well, finding a good beach could be a problem, since there is not to many of them in proximity from Kona where we rented a condo. One I like most – the Hapuna Beach – is about an hour drive one way… But if you are to spend time by the ocean, it worth it.

Some photos are available here.

Another big thing during this trip was diving and snorkeling with camera. I made some photos using my old Fuji FinePix S5200 with Ewa-Marine D-A underwater housing. First, camera by itself does not have housing as accessories, so I have to go with 3rd party solution. I have dove to 60ft without any problems. Considering the price out of all currently available on the market, this one is probably the best alternative.

You can see some of them here.

Overall it was fun and time well spent. But I did like Maui more. 😉

    From a junior developer through Sr Manager position, I was always interested in new technologies. Passionate speaker, IT junky, developer, architect, team lead, and development manager - many hats, one goal - making software better and being closer to people’s needs. For the most part I am using my blog as a scratch pad, writing small articles on things which I came across, was asked about more then once, and which would otherwise require additional research again and again.

    I’ve been using this [theme] since the start. It is by far the most attractive, feature packed and stable of the user-created skins for Gallery3.


    The greydragon theme is fantastic. It’s clean, stable and feature rich. It took me a while to decide to move to G3 but with a there like this one, I could no longer resist. Thanks!
