From the Volcano to Waikiki
After the Kona Marathon, I was ready for some more fun. I felt great - my legs were a little sore, but I was able to walk up and down the stairs - slowly!
I wore my finisher's shirt and the shell necklace they gave us after crossing the finish line so some people stopped to talk to me about the race. The necklace is a special finishing award, but every time I see one just like it for sale at the stores for 59 cents, I laugh. ; )
At the Hawaii Volcano Park, we walked through a lava tube (a cave) and saw the red glow from the volcano.
At Punaluu black sand beach, we saw 2-3 foot long sea turtles and coconut trees.
Monday morning we left Kona airport for Oahu and drove to our Waikiki hotel. My husband and I finished the day watching surfers and boats while we shared a shave ice on the Waikiki beach.
