Place of Refuge National Park, Hawaii......
..................a very windy spot
Note the snow just visible on Mauna Loa behind
the blowing coconut palms on the beach below.
Bob at the Hale O Keawe, Place of Refuge
Young boys don't mind the wind though, fishing
from the lava which has reached the sea is still
fun on a school holiday.
Funky little towns with delightful shopping.........and shop we did!
This salesman was wearing the usual Hawaiian shirt and
a sarong! Kim and Paula checking out a Koa wood
ukulele - Rob in the background - my Bob hanging about somewhere outside,
need I say more about his shopping enthusiasm!
Tropical color everywhere.......
Near Hawi on the northern coast of Hawaii.....today
was very mixed weather, warm and a wee bit humid,
somewhat windy again, then almost chilly for a while,
and an occasional heavy shower.......
...........the Big Island of Hawaii seems to
have several different areas of weather all on
the same day!
Our group, pic by our waitress, left to right - Bob, Me, Paula, Kim and Rob.
We've traveled together often and always have a great time.
