Last night, I slept from 6PM Hawaii time (11PM EST) until 5AM Hawaii time (10AM EST). It was the longest I’ve slept in years, I have not adjusted to the time change and not sure if I will within the week I’m here. With that being said, work picked up yesterday and I couldn’t do as many adventures, but did sneak a couple activities into the day.
It was windy yesterday, like the kind of windy that would rip a kite off the strings. I wanted to hit up a beach and try snorkeling, but the waves were pretty angry, so I thought better of it. I drove across a long lava field that may have violated several provisions of my rental car agreement:
Finally arriving to a secluded beach with tons of interesting tide pools. By the way, what is up with these Hawaiian names, couldn’t they have called this beach Ka’Elehulu, it seems a little over the top to call it Ka’Elehuluhulu, they should have gone the extra mile and called it Ka’Elehuluhuluhuluhulu
I touched a snake last week, but I wasn’t going to touch these things
Here’s a rock with tons of those purple things
I’ve seen these shells in beach towns, but never came across a live one.
People use the volcanic rock to send messages, here was one of my favorites:
I also drove up to an enormous waterfall, but couldn’t find a way to get much closer. It is on the very right of the shot, falling down the cliff into the ocean.
