The scenery is diverse, I tell ya. Blink an eye and it changes dramatically…
Big Dude is NOT known for taking the shortest route from point a to point b. He takes side roads, and breaks, and field trips within field trips. This may have been one of his best diversions ever. Yum. And YUM. I want to go back.
Back on our way … did I mention that it takes F O R E V E R to get from point a to point b anywhere on the Big Island? It does. Long empty stretches between places. But pretty. Everywhere in between is pretty.
Punalu’u Beach, also known as Black Sand beach. This wasn’t a highlight for me. I kind of don’t get the attraction. But, I guess sometimes there are honu turtles all over this beach. Now, THAT would have been awesome.
Getting closer. Next stop: Volcanoes National Park.
