We had a great trip on the Big Island of Hawaii. The lava fields stretch on as far as the eye can see. The sky was colourful and active.

My Mai-Tai. We drove across the saddle road to Hilo. What a great drive home around the top of the island.

Like the plumaria tree, it is full of extremes. This dinasaur-like branch blooms the most delicate and highly-scented flowers.

Bananas!! I always try to eat the little ones. We learned in Costa Rico that only "gringos" eat the big ones.

I knit on the beach at Honoka'ope in the black sand. It was almost deserted and great snorkelling except the surf was too rough for me. The Noro sock yarn Taize shawl was a great choice. Not too wooly, not too difficult/ simple. It was good for knitting on the road, and there is a lot of road on the big island.

The ocean was especially blue and colourful. The white coral against the black volcanic sand is a delight.

We ate dinner on the edge of the sea, watching whales and the sunset.
