Jason and I went and bought sunglasses with the money we had put aside for surfing so we could sit at the beach for longer amounts of time. HAHAHAHAHAHAHA
One morning we did venture out of the resort and we did a temple session at the Kona Temple. What a cool experience.
And one night we went sailing. A word to the wise . . . don't go sailing on windy nights. That's all I will say about that.
We rented a convertible this time. Yes, don't laugh . . . it's a Sebring. Apparently they were all out of Mustangs AND PT Cruisers! Just call us Michael Scott!
We took this photo at a black sand beach.
One of the days we drove to the volcano. It's supposed to be one of the world's most active volcanoes. Jason is standing by one of the steam vents in this picture. On the two hour drive back I found out Jason was pretty disappointed in the volcano. Apparently he expected more than a large hole in the ground . . . I guess he envisioned little tiki men dancing around spewing lava. Hmmmmm . . .
The lagoon at our resort had about six or seven sea turtles you could swim with. It was a lot of fun.
Here we are at the National Park "Place of Refuge." In "ancient" days people who were accused of crimes could escape to this point. If they made it here the priest freed them of all their trespasses and they were deemed free again. I think that means a little more to me now - it truly was a place of refuge for us.
Ok - I hope I haven't bored you with all of these pictures, but we really had a good time.
