On Saturday Michael and I went for another run in the neighborhood, had breakfast and then went to two parks.
The first was the old Kona airport recreation area.
There was a beach there and a garden with a walking trail and some really pretty flowers.
Then we went to the Pu’uhonua O Honaunau National Park. It was so cool! I wish we could have stayed there longer and checked everything out in more depth.
At the welcome center there was some information and then you could walk around and see more huts and then you could walk on the lava out by the ocean and see tide pools with tons of fish and turtles.
I walked out and saw one turtle. The only one on our trip!
It was a place of sanctuary for women, children and elders during times of war.
Then we stopped at a place for lunch on our way back to Kona where we walked around a bit.
Sunday, up for coffee, breakfast, last view from the lanai and then packing for the airport. 🙁
Unfortunately, we got a message our flight was delayed RIGHT after we dropped off our rental car. 🙁 So we were kinda stuck. The Kona Pineapple IPA was pretty fantastic though!
The flight home wasn’t great. We got home at midnight. It was pretty rough!
