Tide pools, lava rocks, and sandy beach in the background.
Yes, proof that I was there!
Beautiful sandy beach, blue ocean and sky, black lava rocks along the shore.
View from the garden area toward the beach.
Feral cat, one of 4 that I saw.
A mongoose. They are everywhere, and they are not native.
Plumeria trees were all in bloom. Beautiful! And fragrant.
Spider lily. It smells wonderful!
Cactus! One garden area had many cactus among the Hawaiian plants.
White bloom on the tip, soon the full length will be blooms.
Chickens, of course.
The Old Airport Recreational Park. It is exactly what the name indicates – it used to be the airport in Kona, HI. Now there is a new airport a bit further out of town, and I was told that the old airport area was designated as a park around 20 years ago. Now various people create gardens and maintain ‘their’ area -.all for our pleasure, and for theirs as well. The oval shaped garden area has a .7 mile walking path, which is well used! Across the parking lot, at the end of which you can see markers from the old runway, is the beach. Oh so peaceful and beautiful, with great tide pools. Here are a few photos, I hope you enjoy them.
