Aloha Oe to the Big Island

OMG...last day here on the Big Island and tomorrow morning I say goodbye to my sister and her family and Mark heads back to New mexico while John, Jason and I head off to Moloka'i. I'm not so sure how the week went by so quickly, but it did. Went to several beaches, saw honus swimming (red leather back sea turtles), saw the rainforest, hiked through Kileaua Iki and Kileaua (I might not be spelling this correctly!) craters on Friday. We didn't get to see lavas flows as there are none flowing at this time. They actually have a "lava hot line" that you can call to get the lastest on lava activity. The beach we went to on July 4th was awesome; right above Kailua Kona area called Hapuna State Beach Park. Huge, white, sandy beach with nice wave action and the water is warm. We even saw a very young honu there right in front of us! I would say that if you yeally wanted to give exploring the Big Island a worthy try, a good two weeks are needed. So, the trip is at the halfway mark. And, sadly, we must bid a loving Aloha Oe.
