Pete has always wanted to take surf lessons and when better to do that but on your birthday?
The view of the bay area where Pete surfed. (The black rock is lava rock.)
Before we left for our trip, I did a lot of research on things to do and also the "must eat at" restaurants on the Big Island. (Pinterest and TripAdvisor are my favorite tools for this.)
One place that kept coming up was Huggo's on the Rocks in Kona. We stopped here after Pete's surf lessons for a cocktail and a fish taco.
We sat at a table right on the sandy beach and ordered some cocktails and split an order of fish tacos.
We did a little sight seeing around Kona before heading back to our resort.
Pete's birthday dinner was at Lava Lava Beach Club; another great spot right on the ocean with some of the tables on the sandy beach.
We had an amazing garlic butter shrimp appetizer and the fish special for dinner! Fabulous!
I think he had a great birthday! :)
