Mornings are apparently the best time to go snorkeling (before the winds come up and the waters are murky), and – we’re told – it should be sunny for the best sightings. But our last few mornings have been overcast, and this morning was no exception. So more inland exploring was in order.
And some sugar cane being planted:
It was a neat little Western-wear shop, and we enjoyed browsing through it and other shops here.
We wanted to go on to a show garden, but got turned around somehow, and ended up back at the ocean watching more surfers – the waves were even more spectacular than the ones we watched a couple of days ago:
Back at the condo, and relaxed in the hot tub – and we ended our first week in Hawaii. The sun set with a hint of a promise of fine weather coming up:
Sunday tomorrow and apparently the day that the local families head for the beaches, so maybe we’ll try to get up to one of the volcanoes.

Almost like being in an airplane!
We gazed down into the mouth of the volcano, and were happy that it was sleeping!

On our way down, we drove through the clouds:
Turned the corner…………….
The ranchlands spread before us – an amazing sight between a volcano and the ocean!
Happy mountain and ocean touring! Blessings, Peg
