'Apua Point aborted
December 19, 2012
This is the sign at the trailhead
I hadn't hiked in quite a while and I was determined to get out there.  I thought a nice easy hike
out to Apua point would be good - it's level, warm, and not too hard.  As it turned out...
Always have to stop off at Kilauea Iki.  
It's such a magnificent view.
It's always good to know which way the
wind's blowing too...
11:19 AM @ *023
Starting out...  Nice and level...
Light breeze at my back, temp in the
high 70s...

Somebody put a piece of coral on each of the ahu.  Makes them easy to spot...
12:03 PM @ *042
12:20 PM @ "Turn", 2 miles out
Looking back...  OOPS!
I turned back, but it started to sprinkle before I got halfway back to *042.  I got everything stowed away and the rain cover
on my pack and proceeded to get drenched.  The wind was 20 mph in my face as I hiked back, creating my favorite,
horizontal rain.  By the time I got back to the car, I was thoroughly soaked!
near Whittington Beach Park
December 29, 2012
Off to find some sun and sea.  We decided to try a place near Whittington Beach.  It was just an old dirt road off the
highway (one of the few without the ubiquitous gates and
kapu ('taboo' - keep out) signs).  While Robin searched out the
tide pools, I decided to check out the area...

Look at the weird erosion of this lava...
This lava, not sand...
Here are a couple of shots taken of
Whittington State Park in March of
2006 on a tour of the island.  You can
see the abandoned pier on the left.
This is a shot zoomed in on the point
the far shore from the left, around the
point, and ended at the left end of that
little bay closest to us.

Park is.  That diagonal line across the
hill is the highway...

You might be able to just make out the
pier in the center of the photo, just
past that little point...
