Our Hawaiian Vacation: First Stop of Two Day Circle Tour

On our ninth day in Hawaii (Tuesday, May 25th) we embarked on a two-day circular driving tour of the island of Hawaii (see map here). John and Dorothy were our tour guides. During the two-day period we toured the following five regions: South Island, Kilauea Volcano, Hilo, Puna and Hamakua.

 

As we began our journey, the sights along the Southern Kona Coast (Rt. 11) were familiar. We had traveled this way the previous day, when we visited “the Painted Church” and the Place of Refuge in the village of Honaunau. Approximately 60 miles from Kona is South Point, which is the southernmost point of all 50 states.

D5253560 4x6As we traveled along South Point Road, we saw cattle grazing and windmills from the Pakini Nui Wind Farm.

D5253563 4x6This cow decided the grass was greener outside the enclosed field. Its assumption appears to be correct.

When we visited South Point a man was fishing from a platform.

D5253568 4x6The fishing line is held afloat by what appears to be a plastic bottle (the red speck in the water). At the end of the line appears to be a big plastic bag (black speck in the water).

There was a strong wind blowing while we were at South Point.
I read that a strong wind blows here frequently.

D5253580 4x6We found this sign somewhere north of South Point, but still in the South Island region. The sign provided a good laugh.

Next stop – Other small towns located in the South Island region

    Amazing place. I love the beautiful coastline. I did not realize that this was the southern most place in the USA.
