South Island and Volcanoes National Park

We drove around the south of the Big Island. The scenery was amazing. We loved the bread at this bakery.




Stopped at the black sand beach.  Unfortunately, no sea turtles, but the sand was so cool.






And then Volcanoes National Park.  We checked out the crater.







And hiked inside a lava tube!




And went to see some more steam vents.


Steamy!

Waialea Bay

This beach was amazing.  The waves were gentle, the water was warm, there was shade right along the shoreline, a tree swing for the kids, rocks to climb on, coral for Sienna to collect.

Kayaking at Mauna Kea

We rented a kayak for two hours for $50 and all got to take a turn paddling around the bay.





Arthur woke up at 4:00, so he took a three hour nap at the beach.
