Punalu’u Beach (black sand beach)

Yesterday saw us hitting the road to explore a novelty of the island; Punalu’u Beach, singularly noted for the features of its black sand and the presence of Green Sea Turtles. Unfortunately, the turtles did not make an appearance during our time there.

Kailua-Kona: First Impressions

Hawaii is considered a dream destination for many and occupies a place of prominence in the idea many have of what constitutes paradise.

I’m currently on the “Big Island” and I have to say its reputation for beauty is well-deserved. As expected I am tempted to capture photographically the impressions the place makes on me.

The number of opportunities to get out in nature in Washington State is pretty staggering. These trails are near what is known as the Ape Caves, the third longest lava tube in North America, a forestry site open to the public. Traversing an underground lava tube is a unique experience and the forest trails surrounding the area offer amazing views.

An excellent way to spend a day.
