Big Island

Aloha, everyone. Today we're heading over to another island. Big Island's been great! Our hotel is so big, it has its own monorail and boat systems! It also has a lot of pools, with bridges and water slides! I went on the water slide 4 times, (my first time on a water slide!), before we had to leave. It had a small sand pool area. The only other thing we did, is go to the Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park. A 3-hour drive each way. I set up my mom's phone to work as a NAVI system. When we got there, we saw a lot of lava. I collected some rock samples and a seed pod from the dried lava. They had a ranger station with two bathrooms (holes in the ground). There was markings that went over the lava as pathways. We got to see fresh lava melting into the water. Aloha for now!

Is that a picure of the steam from the lava sliding into the Ocean?
Glad to hear that no one got a hot foot at the hot spot!
How did the cold lava compare with the lava at the swimming area in the Azores?
Sounds like your having a great time!
Oceanside looking forward to your next post.
