Today's post has quite a few pictures. We spent today going to several places we didn't hit last time and Scott took a ton of pictures so I wanted to share a few.
We first went to the Kilauea lighthouse. This is the very most Northern part of the Hawaii Islands. You get to walk out to the lighthouse and you get some great fews of the north shore.
Then we headed over to Moloa'a Beach. We hadn't been here before - it's off the beaten path and BEAUTIFUL!!! Scott took a ton of pictures here.
I was standing knee deep in the water and somehow maynaged to trip and I fell on some rocks and got a huge gash in my leg. Lovely. This is a great accessory for all the dresses I brought.
Then we took this hike down to some lava rocks and a place called Queen's Bath. It was kind of a hard hike (for two people who NEVER hike and I was wearing a dress and flip flops) but it was worth it. We saw this great waterfall on the way.
This is Queen's Bath - it's a natural swimming pool. You can get in it and swim (we didn't) - it's fed from the Ocean.
Tonight we ate at one of our favorites - Duke's Canoe Club. We had our favorite dessert - Hula Pie! You can probably see why!!! We had this in Maui on our honeymoon and the last time we were here. It was good to the last bite!!!
After dinner - we went to Wal-Mart for a couple of things we needed (just like good Arkansas natives). Our checker asked us where we were from and when we told him the HOME of Wal-Mart - you should have seen his face. We have been laughing so hard ever since. I think he thought we were there to inspect. Scott said he wished he would have had a notebook and acted like he was writing down his name and then walked around acting like he was taking notes. He also said he wished he would have said "I think all associates need to come to the front now and I'll lead us in the Wal-Mart cheer!" :-) (In case you don't know - there IS a cheer and it's done at every meeting.)
I'm sure you have all been thinking about the 10,000 people in China who have died in that earthquake. I can't get them off my mind. I've been praying for their families. I hope you will too. I just keep thinking that most likely 99.9% of those people weren't Christians. I'm also praying for all of those who live near us in AR, MO, and OK who have had terrible tornados. I'm so ready for the spring storm season to be OVER!!!
