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.

St. Peter’s Catholic Church
known locally as the “Little Blue Church”

Located to the right of the “Little Blue Church” is Ku’emanu Heiau.

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.

    I think they must pray before they surf. I was watching once about a Hawaiian surf competition. A very good surf disappeared.

    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.
