Hana and the Black Sand Beach

As I mentioned last trip, the infamous 50-mile road to Hana has over 600 curves and 50 one-lane bridges and takes about two and one-half hours to traverse. In my estimation, it is the most beautiful side of the island and SO worth the trip.  

A waterfall or two can be found at nearly every turn.

We stopped to eat lunch about half-way, and felt a bit self-conscious with the feline audience staring us down. We counted 24 cats!

Wayne arranged for a hotel in town for two nights. so we could take our time without having to rush to back to "civilization".
With a view like this, an ocean breeze, and the mesmerizing sound of the waves -- why would I ever want to leave the room?
We did attend church, however. The branch met in this small chapel less than a block from our hotel. We were met with hugs and kisses and made to feel so welcomed. 
To let you in on a little secret - this branch meets for just two hours on Sunday rather than the usual three-hour block. I think I want to move to Hana! :o)

Hana's black-sand beach truly is BLACK -- with sparkling little white bits of coral here and there.

It really is a sight to see!

Before I close this blog entry and move on to other themes and subjects, our deepest thanks go to Wayne and Marsha for inviting us to share this amazing experience!
What a tremendous opportunity! You are the best!
