Day four was spent largely in the car enjoying the beautiful scenery. I loved it. You drive to the Hilo side of the island and feel like you walked into a Jurassic Park movie. Stunning! The only thing that was a little bummer was the fact that it was a bit foggy so the pictures didn’t turn out as well as they could have.
Since it’s foggy, the pictures don’t do it justice but oh my goodness. Standing there for a few minutes alone, I felt such reverence and gratitude to Heavenly Father and Jesus for creating such beautiful places on earth. I literally got tears in my eyes as I stood there and smelled the ocean, felt the breeze on my face, and overlooked one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen. I wish you could all be there to see it. It was breathtaking.
This little kitty was following us. I told Dillon I had to take a picture for Little Miss B. While I took it he said, “and it will probably be her favorite picture of our whole trip.” I think he was right. She got quite the huge grin when she saw it.
Crazy how the lunch menu changes according to where you are…
My mom was tired so didn’t get out at this volcano. Dillon gave her a walkie talkie and once we got up there, he got all official sounding and said, “I’m seeing a lot of lava—over.” I married a funny guy. His comment (not question) after I took this, “Did you notice the calf flex in there.”
I think this lava flowed down over the road in 1984. No one was killed thankfully because it was moving so slowly. Otherwise, I wouldn’t be acting how I was in the pictures below because that would just be immature.
We were told Ken’s house of pancakes was yummy. Dillon was the only smart one and got breakfast and his WAS yummy. Mine was still pretty good, but my mom and Karl didn’t enjoy theirs. We should have taken note of the name and got a clue!
Very full day! But oh, so beautiful!
