Hilo and a Luau...

Beach house in Hilo

Volcanic beach

Making a lei at the luau

On the first day in Hilo I took a walk with a friend on the ship to some beach parks near the port.  The hard, black volcanic rock with the crashing waves makes a dramatic scene.  That evening we went to a luau sponsored by the University of Hawaii at Hilo.  Students and residence life staff taught us how to make leis from tea leaves and dye scarves (and some learned how to do a hula dance).
