Hawaii–Pu’uhonua o Honaunau & Two-Step Beach

Last morning on the Big Island.  We headed back to Two-Step Beach (snorkeling) and Pu’uhonua o Hanaunau (aka Place of Refuge) National Historical Park (Middle Dude & me), the two sites side by side.

Sorry ‘bout the spider.  But I’d be lying if I didn’t acknowledge that Beautiful Hawaii has these.  Big ones. All over the place.

Don’t have a clue how this game is played.  Neato set-up, tho – each of these rocks has a carved out spot they fit perfectly into.

Plentiful pretty yellow tang swimming all around …

I forgot to bare my teeth in the style of buddies.  Shame on me.

Two-step beach is just off to the left of this next frame and by the time we headed back it was super crowded …
