Day 2 in Paradise

Today was a long but glorious day in Paradise. Yawn. We made the long ride to Hana and to the 7-Sacred Pools. The total milage was only 44 miles, but it took us 4 hours to get there. The reason is that the speed limit is 15 miles per hour and in many spots it gets down to 10 miles especially over these single lane bridges. The scenery was beautiful and worth the drive.This was the second stop on our drive. It was to the Twin Falls. They had a fruit stand with coconuts, pineapple and little bananas.Her are the falls. Bill, Ryan and Katie swam in the pond while I relaxed and took pictures.After 4 hours, we made it to Hana and had lunch at one of the two restaurants in town.
This is one of the cottages at the Hana Hotel.
And here we are at the O'Heo Gulch, most known as the Seven Sacred Pools.
On the way back we stopped by the black sand beach. We were too tired to go down, but was nice viewing it from above.



Finally, we ended the day with dinner at the Pool Side Grill watching the sunset.
