Picture of the Day 11.02.2016
What a great ending to what I expected to be a rather boring day without many photos. This morning I took a flight from Honolulu to Kona on Big Island. It's really great flying in Hawaii and seeing all the islands from the plane. After my arrival I picked up a rental car because this seems to be the only way to actually see something of the island and I missed being independent, it's just so much better for photos. Most of the day was then spent getting grocery and doing laundry and all those fun things, oh and planning what I'm going to do here. In the afternoon I just wanted to drive to some beach I found in my guidebook but as you can imagine getting up at 5am left me pretty tired so I didn't really want to spend an hour on so road so I just took the first exit that said national-park. As it turned out that was the right thing to do. Ok it didn't seem so great at first, just a beach but then the turtles came. I got really excited when I saw the first head looking out of the water and was just hoping to see it one more time and suddenly there were dozens of them on the beach everywhere. As it turns out that's where they spend their night and all of them seem to go to bed at the same time. I got some great shots and it was a perfect welcome to my first day on Big Island. It is going to be awesome.
