Off and running.
Anyway, onto the more important part of the blog... sharing our adventure driving the Road to Hana. All I can say is WOW. It truly is beautiful, and Oh So NARROW!
|Red Sand Beach in Hana|
In all honesty, there is no way to truly describe the experience and have anyone understand just how lush and beautiful it is. There are painted trees, and hanging vines, and blooming flowers, and crashing ocean, and gorgeous vistas, and hidden waterfalls, and jagged lava rock, and a black sand beach, and a red sand beach, and winding, twisting single lane highway. Really amazing.
Having the windows open and tasting the salt in the air, and feeling the coolness of the rainforest air, it was absolutely stunning.
Oh, there was also a place we stopped for banana bread... really, they said it was the best banana bread on the island, and they were not lying. Yum. Aunty Sandy's. Yum. Might have been the best banana bread ever.

There was also the black sand beach and lava tube where I kept seeing Sea Turtles all over the place.... and NO ONE else was seeing them. Jason was convincing complete strangers I was hallucinating turtles, but FINALLY on one the bluffs with several other people listening to my rantings... "LOOK, WHERE THE FOAM IS... UNDER WATER... NEAR THE ROCKS... HE IS ABOUT TO COME UP... OH MY GOD... RIGHT THERE" well, finally, my hallucinations were corroborated and I got to walk away the victor of our marital spat. Yeah, that is about the extent of our marital spats at this point of the vacation!!
Well, that is all for now, hope you are having as much fun as I am!!
