The Pacific Ocean was visible from where I was standing when I took these photos, or just a few feet away, but there is only a bit visible in one of them.

Hawaii is the land of endless beaches.  There isn’t a lot to do, but going to the beach is enough for most Hawaiians.  A lot of these were captured in Kona, but a few were from further North. (Post contains swimwear images.)

South Point is about 60 miles South of Kona.  It is the Southernmost point in the USA.  Some believe the Polynesians landed here 3,000 years ago.  The wind blows a lot and in the same direction as you can see from the shape of the tree.

This post picks up where the last one ended at Pu’uhonua o Honaunau National Historical Park.  A nearby beach is popular with divers and snorkelers.  If you should happen to be in the area, stop off at Lady Cat.  The clothing in the boutique is as whimsical as the mannequins out front.  I hope nobody minds swimwear shots.  Hawaii is about beaches, and this is what I see every day here.  I have tried to select photos having meaning that goes beyond the beauty of youth.

The day started out with the typical oversized Hawaiian breakfast. I then headed south  stopping at a few beaches before reaching Pu’uhonua o Honaunau National Historical Park where the abstract photos of a fish pond were captured.

Less than two weeks after returning from Hong Kong, I headed halfway back across the Pacific to the Big Island of Hawaii.  These photos were captured in the area around Kona.  Stay tuned as there are more on the way.

If you have not seen my photos from Hong Kong and Macau, please don’t limit your journey to this post.  It was an exciting trip.  You can share my experiences for free (as in beer) by scrolling down the front page of my blog and checking out the galleries.

Along the streets of Macau there are small businesses located behind garage doors.  Electricity must be expensive because few had lights on.  It appeared the majority of these places were food related, either small restaurants or some kind of take away.  These micro businesses were a stark contrast to the giant gambling casinos.   Dried meat is a local specialty.  Tourists from China couldn’t get enough of it.
