Our Hawaiian Vacation: A Lazy Day
I don’t have much to share in regards to our 11th day in Hawaii (May 27th). That day was a lazy one for me. While John and Bob were deep-sea fishing and Dorothy was at work, I was at the condominium doing laundry and adding keywords to photographs. I am relieved that I took the time to add keywords to my vacation photographs. I know that I would have forgotten where some photographs had been taken had I not added the keywords! That evening Dorothy and I drove 4 miles south of Kona to St. Peter’s Catholic Church, where we watched the sun set behind an ancient temple.
known locally as the “Little Blue Church”
This heiau (temple) is the only known ancient site dedicated to surfing. Only chiefs were allowed to surf, and they came here to pray for big waves.
By the way Bob and John did not catch any fish this time out. You may recall that they were successful in bringing in three ono from their first deep-sea fishing trip on May 19th.
Stay tuned; I will take you on a tour of a coffee plantation in my next Hawaiian vacation blog post.

Hi Linda, Everybody needs at least ONE lazy day while on vacation…. You deserved it!!!!!Love that little church –and the sunset scene is beautiful.Hugs,Betsy
I think they must pray before they surf. I was watching once about a Hawaiian surf competition. A very good surf disappeared.
ahhh, relaxing watching a sunset in Hawaii….thats gotta be one of lifes greatest pleasures.Love the little blue church. Beautiful pics, as always.Looking forward to seeing the coffee plantation!
I will take a page from your book here about writing down the where's and whats of my forthcoming trip. (And I will tell all about it soon on my blog as well.)
Love the sunset, too!!
Your pictures remind of one of the last trips Hubby and I took with my parents. We even statyed at Uncle Billy's on our tour around the island.I know what you mean about marking photos. We didn't have a computer with us on our recent trip so I have been busy downloading and marking.
Fun Fun Fun. It's nice to have a day of relaxation amidst the hubbub isn't it. I like the way you framed the sun in the sunset shot and had to laugh about the chiefs going to pray for big waves.
Fantastic pictures! Love the fullness of the moon.You are right about adding keywords to photographs. Memory sometimes can be unreliable.
another beautiful photos…. the sunset are really amazing. regards
it has been a pleasure to follow your trip and those colorful last photos make a great end to that. Thanks for showing!
What a fantastic sunset! And I like the little church above it…
Hi Linda, i love that sunset shot with the framing. How lovely i always envy your photos. If i always see your photos, the more i will be disappointed with mine. I still get blurred photos, hehe.
I like the Little Blue Church. Nicw pic. We toured a pineapple farm once. I think it was owned by Dole. Nothing like Hawaiin fresh pineapple for breakfast.Stephen Tremp
