Place of Refuge

On Tuesday, 2/10, we visited Pu'uhonua o Honaunau
(Place of Refuge).
Hawai'ian history tells us if you broke the law, the punishment was death.
If you could reach a place of refuge, you would be forgiven. Hawai'ian man tells the history of his people
Have you ever felt like this? (Monk seal)
Honu (green sea turtle)
for the green fat they have due to eating seaweed.
I loved capturing crashing waves with my camera.sacred Polynesian wooden statuesARGHHHH! (not a very sacred addition)

You crazy cuckoo headed Hoosier you!
Love what you're sharing with us.
Can't feel the water, but it's almost like being there. Thanks for that. You're showing us all a "different" view of our youngest state.
