On my recent trip to Hawaii I encountered many memorable moments, most of which I didn’t have a camera to hand, but at other times I did. Here are some photos of my time there…
The North of the Island
We trekked down a steep dry dusty path through a tropical hillside to a blustery volcanic stony beach. It was humid and hot, but felt totally different to the rest of the island. With over 8 distinct climates across the island, we experienced tropical, desert, arrid, temperate and other climates during our stay.
The Lava Fields
The lava fields in Hawaii are extensive and barren. They demonstrate the violent past of the creation of these isles through volcanic activity. We saw giant lava flow tunnels bored by molten rock (magma) then solidified within which you could comfortably park a large bus.
The Gravestone of Henry Obookiah
The amazing journey of faith for Henry who left the islands a stowaway only to return over 100 years after his death, yet was instrumental to bringing the good news to the nation.
The Sea Turtle
It very kindly made an appearance just for us whilst visiting a marina. Dipped down too quickly to sign autographs.
The Cliff Jump
On the final full day on the island we ventured to a remote spot and jumped off a 30ft cliff into the ocean. It looked farther than it was but the ocean was pretty warm and accommodating.
