Punalu'u Black Sand Beach Park, Hawaii Island, Hawaii

  I love visiting the state of Hawaii.  Although I have enjoyed all the Hawaiian islands I have visited (Oahu, Kauai, and Hawaii Island), my favorite island would be Hawaii Island (aka the Big Island).  The diversity of the Hawaii...

Want to Pilot an A330? Here's Your Chance!

PHeymont ·
Well, sort of. Hawaiian Airlines is training its pilots, and some from other airlines, on a full-size, full-control simulator in Honolulu that's so realistic it left a Skift reporter who went along stunned that he was still in Hawaii when the "ride"...

Gumbo's Pic of the Day, January 29, 2015: The art of lava

DrFumblefinger ·
I'm often amazed at how beautiful the small things in nature can be.  Whether a bee pollinating a flower, a wild animal stopping to look at you, a blade of grass struggling to grow in a desert, or how sculpted lava can seem.   These photos...

Hard to be sure as there are repeated flows of lava over the area I took pictures in, but at least 25 years and probably more like 50-75 years for those with better developed grasses and ferns. Lava flows are often quite narrow, maybe only a few hundred meters wide, and overlap often.

Gumbo's Pic of the Day, Aug. 24, 2014: Chicken Hawaiian Style

PHeymont ·
We went to Hawaii expecting surf, mountains, palms, pineapples and all the rest...but no one told us about the chickens! Here and there around the islands we found them...on the beach, on mountain trails, in parking lots. Sometimes one or two,...

Paul, you're beginning to sound like Ben Franklin who wanted the turkey to be the USA's national bird, not the bald eagle. If he'd seen these photos, I'm sure old Ben would have been advocating for the chickens.

And if Ben Franklin had told anyone he'd seen these photos, he'd have been locked up and we'd have never heard of him. It was probably a close call for him as it was.

Some beautiful photos, Ottoman! I'm fond of black sand beaches because you only find them in places with active volcanoes, and I love volcanoes. White sand beaches are generally formed from the breakdown of coral (often by parrotfish, who eat it and clear the fine particles out the other end). This beach isn't that large, but the black sand is striking. And the turtles -- how lovely they are. They look soooo relaxed. Makes me want to take a nap in that warm sand, too!

You'd love the Canary Isles. Volcanic islands off the north west cost of Africa. Its a winter hotspot where the islands belong to Spain. Its party time all year and a favourite with the younger set. Its famous on Tenerife for young men to drive up Mount Teide in winter and collect snow from the peak in Cooler Boxes. Drive back down to the 77'f / 25'c beaches and throw snowballs at the topless sunbathers. Might be a bit too much for non-Europeans !!

DrFumblefinger ·
GarryRF -- I think non-Europeans can also enjoy the sight of sunbathers being pegged by snowballs! The first hit, especially, must be quite enjoyable as the injured party wonders "where did that cold hard thing come from"?

Hi DrFumblefinger and Garry RF Thanks for the feedback. DrFumblefinger, you are so right about the relaxed turtles. If time would have permitted, I would've joined them for a nice nap. GarryRF, I have copied and pasted your comment into my "things to do" folder. I think I'll fit in quite nicely at Tenerife, for living in the Great White North (aka Canada) has given me a lot of practice at becoming a snowball sharpshooter.
