    Here's the LOST TV Show "tower" in the back of Ka'a'awa Valley.
    I climbed all over it too! Don't know the episode name, but did see it on TV.

    So, they got scaffolding around the state seal because it is coming down... for cleaning and maintenance. More photos at this link.

    Cool photo! I wonder what something like that weighs? And where they'll be cleaning it. Hmmm.

    Even with all that has been built since...
    Notice the large crane in the upper background.

    Gorgeous pictures!

    Sinjin, I love Ren. faire! Is that your littlest one?!! She's completely precious.


    Below are two pictures of my *almost* 3 year old. The past 3 years have really flown by.

    She's really grown up! She reminds me of an elf in a fairy tale (without the ears, of course) in the first picture. I mean that in the best possible way, I love elves!!! Very delicate and pretty face.

    Great shots all! Love seeing the pics of your families.

    Brian, that shot with the boat is amazing. It deserves to be printed on canvas.

    More Big Island Adventure:

    On Friday night afer work I went, at the suggestion of one of my colleagues, to a restaurant called Rapanui, featuring New Zealand and Pacific Island cuisine. I had the catch of the day, Ono. Ono is the Hawaiian equivalent of Halibut. Very different types of fish, but the meat is very similar. My favorite. It was seasoned with cracked pepper and curry powder. The presentation was great and the flavors were mind bogglingly delicious. The waitress was very friendly and mellow. I sat outside in a little corridor facing the sea. I highly recommend it.



    On Saturday morning I went to Kahalu'u Beach Park for some snorkeling.

    More Kahalu'u.

    I keep trying to get a definitive shot of a humuhumunukunukuapua'a, but it's not that easy. They move almost continuously and have an uncanny ability to keep their bodies at angles other than perpendicular to the camera.



    This one's a slightly different variety of triggerfish.

    On Sunday, I drove to Puna via Ka'u and Na'alehu. Somewhere between Volcano and the turnoff to Pahoa, I spotted this rusty Renoir. You can't help but like him.



    Rootin' around furthur beyond there was this old bus being taken back into the fold.



    I drove on past Pahoa toward the end of the road at Kalapama.

    First I ended up driving toward the plume of smoke I thought was the outgassing from the vent. More on that later. It took me to a place where there were signs that said "Danger. No Trespassing. Enter at Your Own Risk." I have to admit I was compelled to get just a little closer to get a good shot. So I drove up to where there were some other cars and got out. Right away a woman pulled up and said we weren't supposed to be there and to come back at 5pm and we could go down to a place to view the plume of what must apparently be largely water vapor from where the lava is entering the sea. That's what I'd been seeing and had photographed last time. Not the outgassing. So I headed back toward the end of the road and walked out over the lava to the black sand beach.

    In these pics of the waves, you can see how the water churns up and carries the black sand as it breaks on the shore, causing the wave to be black in color.






    I've posted a pic like this before, but it's really an extremely beautiful and pleasant place to spend some time. Outside of this photo to the right, directly into the ocean, there is a small field of rounded black pebbles and stones at the surf's edge. When the surf retreats, the water rocks the stones together and they make a chorus of clicking sounds that is audible even with the sound of the waves crashing.

    Well, it's almost 5pm, so I head back over to enter at my own risk. As you can see, there's not just one plume, but two. You can see a helicopter above the big plume. I'll post the rest tomorrow night. The best is yet to come.

    Each medallion weighs about 7,500 pounds. Read about them here.

    And here is where they are being stored and will be cleaned.



    This was shot about a week and a half ago. Today both seals are standing upright in this scaffolding.



    This is when they were taking down the one in front of Beretania St.



    And here is the same seal laying flat next to the scaffolding before they brought in a crane and hoisted it into the slot next to the one pictured on the top. This photo and the one on the very top were shot with my tiny fixed focus Sony Cybershot U30 pocket camera. The one in the middle was shot with the Canon S5 iS.
