We stayed at the Paniolo Greens condos. We were in the South Kohala
district and close to the best public beach on the island, Hapuna Beach.
The condos were half way between the coast highway and Waimea, where the Parker Ranch is located.
We met a Hawaiian lady on the plane over to the big island and she suggested
that we try "flumin'
da ditch" which is taking a kyak down an irrigation flume that was
built by Japanese laborors in the early 1900s. The construction of the
North Kohala Ditch, the irrigation system for the plantations in North
Kohala began in 1905. We gave it a try and it was interesting.
