We recently enjoyed a lovely vacation in Hilo on the Big Island of Hawaii. We rented a home and this was the view from the back garden. It was wonderful waking up in the morning and watching the sun rise over the ocean without even getting out of bed! Hilo is in a tropical rainforest and at night the sound of thousands of tiny coqui frogs punctuatate the night with their shrill two-note chirps. The coquis hide in potted plants so as you can see we enjoyed front row seating to what we called the "Coqui Karaoke!"
