Looking South to Hilo 
The following photos are of our journey to the north to Honokaa.  
We took the "Scenic Drive" and witnessed a waterfall, a fallen sea arch,
 and far too many mosquitoes that wanted to take a ride in our car.

Just a blue view
The next few photos came out very dark, the camera was not able to capture the grandeur. At night the ocean would suck the lava from the tubes and throw it back to the beach.   When the sun appeared the waves roared and the steam rose...we were in awe of such creation in the making.  We marked a "special spot" for the event and thanked Pele for sharing with us.
