Our Hawaiian Vacation: Graffiti, Dry Lava Land and Scrub Brush (Kohala Day Trip)

This post continues details of our driving tour of Kohala, which we enjoyed on our fourth day in Hawaii (Thursday, May 20th).

In between our first stop at Manini’owali Beach and our second stop at Pu’Ukohola Heiau National Historic Site, I took a few drive-by photographs of the Hawaiian countryside. It was necessary to take a few drive-by photographs. If we had stopped at every place I saw a photo opportunity, we would not have seen very much of the island!

Hawaiian Graffiti

Coral-written messages were scattered all over the lava covering the ground along Route 19. In addition to “Aloha CVS”, I saw messages such as “I Love You Sandy” or “In Memory of David” and signs, too, such as the peace symbol. I view this type of graffiti as works of art.

Scrub Grass
In addition to lava-covered land along Route 19 we saw countryside covered with scrub grass,
as well as views of distant mountains.

We are nearing our next stop on our Kohala driving tour.

    Graffiti in Hawaii???? Yuk—I thought WE were the only people to do that!!!! I'll admit that some of the dry lava land and scrub brush is not at all like I thought Hawaii looked like…Guess, when they advertise it, they don't show those things!!!!!! haHugs,Betsy

    My idea of Hawaii is not at all like this. Good to go along on your drive and see what it is like around that part of the country.great graffiti.

    I liked the Hawaiian graffiti. The white coral really shows up against the black lava rock. I didn't see any nasty words like you do on the mainland.@Betsy and @Glennis – The Kona side of the Island of Hawaii is dry. The Hilo side is wet. Keep reading. You'll soon see lush landscapes that Hawaii is noted for.

    This is interesting, like others said, not matching up to my idea of Hawaii, but still cool to see the different reality.
