We instead headed to Alii Drive, which takes you through old town Kona which is almost an exact replica of what Lahina, Maui used to be. Instead, both sides of the streets are lined with shops, outdoor eating and such. It's a narrow adventure drive with the rocky ocean to one side. There are many hotels and vacation rentals in this area, thus lots of people walking. We stopped at a park just at the end of the area and enjoyed our poki, veggies & crackers.
The pictures to the right are a pano of this park place, very peaceful...
Turtles are swimming here so we'll go back, with shoes, and hike over the rocks for a better view of them another day.
|Pretty place and busy with lots of adventurists:)|
|Every place on this island is rocky and mountainous.|
|Yep, you have to drive back up that hill to get home!!|
|A display of the mac nuts, banana's, papaya's, and avocado's we have to eat everyday...oh man, oh man!!|
|New adventures tomorrow........|
