Hawaii–Day 11

Our plans for today had been made soon after our arrival in Hawaii – a tour to Hana.  Reportedly a road with 900+ curves in a 35-mile stretch, narrow and eventually becoming gravel, rental car companies decline the privilege of renters driving here.  So we booked a tour.

Iwi was a fabulous tour guide, keeping us entertained and informed throughout the day – and was a competent driver, allowing all of us to enjoy the views without worrying about what might be around the next corner.  And the corners seemed never-ending!

We saw so many sights, and plant-life that I can’t begin to share them all with you.  I’ll do separate posts on flora – and lava!

Honomanu Bay provided glorious views of the ocean:08.Honomanu Bay

We ‘met’ a sleeping Monk Seal:

At one stop Iwi fashioned a bird from a palm leaf – and perched it on Grizz’s head:

Happy tour day!   Blessings, Peg

  1. Looks like you missed the snow. Apperently Florida was the only state not to have snow on Tuesday.
