Beach in front of our hotel. Or lava rock meets crashing waves. Whatever you want to call it.
Lounging. Oh how I miss the lounging in the hot sun.
We took a trip south to visit one of the most active volcanoes in the world. This is the crater of the volcano. It is not currently erupting from here but it wasn't so long ago that it was and it is still steaming. Very cool to see but we were glad to be miles from the lava flows.
Below is what's called a lava tube. Basically it's a pipe, made out of lava, through which lava flowed. This is in the middle of a rain forest so it's likely been millions of years since any lava flowed here. Nature is amazing. Period.
Downtown Kona, a really neat old building. No plaque to detail what it may have once been used for.
Here, our weather vanes usually have a chicken or rooster on them, in Hawaii, it's a dude navigating a canoe. Very neat.
The crew, right before we left the hotel for good. Don't we look like we had a terrible time?
