So I’m doing these blogs in July… 4 months after the trip, because I’m caught up on everything like that. I don’t remember if this was day 3 or 4 so I’m just calling it 4 and if it wasn’t, oh well. On this day, whatever day it was, we drove up to the north part of the island. We wanted to catch the sunset up there and we did, which was pretty. And we saw some of the rainforest-y terrain as well, and wild pigs! It was interesting to see the more rural part of the Big Island. Some of the houses seemed pretty much like shacks. There were clouds rolling through which made it pretty. The picture below was a pretty tree that was in downtown Kona. I’m not sure what it was. Someone said Banyan but I don’t think it was. But I’m no tree expert.
Pictures from the drive north. Typical rocky terrain.
I honestly don’t even remember where these were taken.
We ate across the street from this statue of King Kamehameha.
All of these pictures are from our drive back. We passed over a few streams and the forest was so thick! Definitely neat to see.
We made it to the beach in time for the sunset. All of these photos were taken in order, I was just messing around with my camera settings for some of them. This was another one of my favorite parts of the trip. Watching the sunset and listening to the waves and then crawling around the lava rocks looking for shells tucked in them. We found quite a few!
