Hawai'i (The Big Island)

The main feature of the Big Island has to be the volcano.

It was incredible to be up there, and the walk we did was amazing.
It took us right along the base of a crater which was active only 20 years ago (left).
A drive to the coast ends abrubtly though, where the lava stopped flowing (middle).
And you are never far from sulphur vents (right) so watch your breath.

There was more to see on the island though.
Left are wooden idols from an ancient sanctuary.
Right is a petraglypgh, one of thousands found in a very small area.

And, of course, one of the outstanding memories is the amazing sunset,
as viewed from our balcony!

We hope you have enjoyed the selection of our holiday snaps.
Paradise indeed!
