June 29, 1999 - Kawaihae Day

Today we are moving to the other side of the Big Island. The bus ride was long and very crowded. We stopped at Pu'ukohola Heiau, a national historic site. At the visitor center, we learned about the history of Pu'ukohola Heiau. There is a Temple of War built by King Kamehameha I which looks like a fortress.

Afterwards, we visited Hapuna Beach Park for lunch and swimming. We also buried some people in the sand. It was a very relaxing several hours.
Then, we left for Kailua-Kona. Along the way, we passed lava fields where people spelled out words with white rocks.
We arrived at the Royal Kona Resort, unpacked, had dinner and then had free time.
