“We’re going to stay HERE?”

Monday morning we woke up, checked out of the hotel, and made our way our way south. We stopped at a Restaurant called Huggo’s on the Rocks for breakfast/lunch.

We ordered a mango margarita and a caipirinha along with ahi tacos.

We stopped off on the side of the road to check out more lava rock. Trevor fooling around.

On our way, we stopped on the side of the road to pet and feed the affectionate horses.

We spent quite some time taking photos with the horses :)

One of the things I really wanted to do on the Big Island was to go to the southernmost point in the US. We all decided to take jumping photos to commemorate this moment.

Our last stop (before the volcano) was to Punalu’u Black Sand Beach Park.

There were TONS of sea turtles!

While we were at the beach park, I saw a little puppy tied up to a pole. I asked the local if I could pet her. Thankfully, Katie brought the pup her leftovers and we were able to feed her too.

As we finally pull up to Volcano National Park, Katie exclaims, “We’re staying HERE?” We tell her, yes. She repeats it again. And we say, yes. Haha. We are driving by steam vents. We are smelling the vog. We are literally next to a volcano with an overdue eruption. And I used to have nightmares from watching Dante’s Peak when I was young.

The glow of Kilauea.

We ate dinner at Kilauea Military Camp’s bowling alley. We had a lot of fun bowling. We also donated $$ to the jukebox. An interesting playlist… Towards the end the night, Katie gave me one of her chinese face masks and I sat around like a weirdo for awhile :)

We uploaded and backed up photos and then passed out for the night.
