|We drove along the south shore, |
calling upon Po'ipu ...
|... home of Sprouting Horn blow hole!|
From Go Hawaii at this link,
Ancient Hawaiians believed this coastline was once guarded by a giant moo (lizard) named Kaikapu. Everyone was afraid of the moo because it would eat anyone who tried to fish or swim in the area.
One day, a young boy named Liko entered the ocean to outwit the lizard. Kaikapu attacked him, but Liko thrust a sharp stick into her mouth, swam under the lava shelf, and escaped through a small hole to the surface.
The moo followed Liko and got stuck in the lava tube. To this day, you can hear the lizard’s roar and see her breath spraying from the blowhole.
| We continued along the coast to the|
Hanapepe Valley Overlook.
|Hanapepe is famous for its swing bridge.|
|It truly swings!|
