Beaches, lava fields etc.
The last two pictures is the remainder from
the last lava flow in the early 1800's on the Western side of the island
Paniola (cowboys) are big part of life on the
Big Island due to all the cattle and horses given to the chief many, many
years ago. The chief brought over the first cowboys from Arizona to train
his people how to manage his herds. The beef industry is a large part of
life on this island...
Feasting at a luau is a Hawaiian tradition
that dates back centuries. The main course is a pig which is stuffed with
hot stones and wrapped in ti leaves then cooked all day in an underground
oven called an Imu.
We snorkeled at this bay...Lots of colorful
coral and fish. Very beautiful.. Wild dolphins were close by playing
with the kayakers.
A Lap of Hawaii
We rented a small plane and took a lap round the island which
is about the size of CT with a population of under 900,000 with two 13,000
Besides water falls and Macadamia nut farms we flew over a live volcano.
