|Yay! for bead shops while in Hawaii on vacation!|
|the terrain of the big island, as seen from the car...|
|love this little plant, for growing in an unexpected spot!|
And black sand beaches.

And sand colored sand beaches too.

We also got to see the largest mountain in the world, Mauna Kea- Larger than Everest! (Hard to believe, and at first we didn't. But we Googled it, and learned that measurements start below sea level, if that's where the mountain begins--- and this one starts way below sea level!) We also visited the National Park and got to see the crater of Mauna Loa, one of Earth's most active volcanoes.
