Gilligan’s Island

This is a locals favorite. Affectionately nicknamed Gilligan’s Island.  Only at the highest tide does the water cut you off from the rest of civilization. The full moon is usually a good indicator…

Painted Church in Kalapana Pahoa

image

image

The first church, started by Father Damien.
This church was in the line of the lava flow in the 80s and the community jacked and moved it to its current location.
There are 4 painted churches on the big island. THIS ONE IS THE MOST SPECIAL.

What’s going on down at the end of the road where the lava took the road. There’s lava boat tours there’s lava glass art there’s lava hiking tours there’s drinks. And photography art of lava. 
Oh yeah there’s HOT LAVA TOO!
As luck(is there such a thing) may have it,  I’m heading there again tonight.

While out hiking today we came across an injured dog. He has been badly injured in 2 spots. It’s obviously ther result of a hunting accident pigs use their tusks to defend himself. he has a large gash on his leg and another 1 on its belly. We were on our way to see Pu’u oo a closed trail. With a lot of coaxing we got him half a mile back to the car.  I’m pretty sure hes gonna need stitches, anybody wanna volunteer?
He already has allowed me to put neosporin on his wounds.
He’s a well tempered dog we will keep him as long as nobody claims him and he gets along with boo and doesnt kill our chickens.
We are open to name suggestions.

Every saturday at 930 in the morning you can come to the leilani estates pavilion and go to a free yoga class . we have rotating instructors . the classes are for all levels and afterwards there’s about a 10 minute meditation. After the class typically we have a soccer match for those who choose to participate. The combo makes for a pretty mean workout. Rain or shine!
