|I should have kicked off the series of |
Big Island posts with our arrival in
Kona via Hawaiian Airlines.
|Kona is located on the west side of the island along |
with most of the ancient Hawaiian sites.
|We arrived in Kona days before the Ironman |
Competition. We met a Japanese competitor on
the rental car shuttle. Notice his bike case!
|The Kona airport is built atop the lava fields. |
This gives way to unique graffiti - coral to
spell out words ....
|... and the shaka!|
|We stopped at the Kaloko-Honokohau|
National Historical Park (link).
|It preserves the village that |
once thrived in the area.
Do you have a National Historical park near you? One randomly selected commenter from this week's blogs will win a book choice from my convention stash. This giveaway is open to all readers. Comments are open through Saturday, March 17, 10 pm in Hawaii. I'll post the winner on Sunday, March 18.
