There are black sand, green sand, and white sand beaches....The beach above is on the SE side of the island, not too far from the active volcano at the moment....
green sea turtles sun themselves at the black sand beaches
The highlight of this trip was the chance to go on a canoe paddle as guests of the Keauhou Canoe Club.
We went on a double canoe since they are a bit more stable for beginners. With some basic instructions, it was easy and fun. Thanks to my cousin Chip Fischer who lives on the island for hooking us us for this great adventure. We were lucky to see spinner dolphins up close on this paddle!
One of the best things is to share good times with good friends!
Ted and Georgienne (left) joined Jim and I on this trip. We have traveled several times with them to many different destinations. We always have such a great time.
