Awhile back there was a thread on the current eruption of Kilauea on the Big Island of Hawaii. This had me digging threough old vacation photos. I tripped across some pics from a secluded black sand beach in the Puna district. My travel companions and I almost had this beach to ourselves. It is a magical place, people leave offerings in niches in the cliff behind the beach and young palms have been planted in the area. Nature owns this beach as the tides and waves were magnificent when we were there. A humbling experience.
This piece I will keep to remind me of that trip and that particular place that I hope to get back to some day.
