My buttocks. I burned them.

Public service announcement: Always sunblock your butt when snorkeling.

We have returned from a magical, warm, fantastic, relaxing, chicken-filled week in Hawai’i.

We saw lava flowing from a volcano, five miles away:
Lava from 5 miles away on Mt. Kilauea - Big Island

Five hours after we left, they closed this trail down due to an earthquake swarm. A few days later, magma oozed out of a new place on the volcano, while the flow pictured above began to dissipate. Pele loves me.

The next day, I went snorkeling, which adventure prompted the PSA above. I have dropped off the underwater cameras at the photo lab, and hope to have fish photos for you soon.

Spent a lovely afternoon at the beach,

where I saw a net fisherman

and a nudist.

There were high points,

(High! Pointy!)

and low points,

and pointy plants,

but I loved them all.

I even loved the ubiquitous chickens.

And I was very sad to leave.

    I’ve heard of “vacations”. One of these days I’ll have to try one out myself. Glad you had a great time, nudist and all!

    Were you at the Grand Hyatt in Poipu? It’s right near where my grandparents live. So pretty there!

    We went to Kauai for our honeymoon – brought back happy memories just looking at your post and photos. Where did you stay? We stayed in a condo on the east side, in Kapaa. Thanks for the mini mind vacation!

    Dina pegged it – the Grand Hyatt in Poipu. Dina, do you think your grandparents would adopt me, maybe?
