Picture of the Day 14.02.2016
No Stars today...the weather is to bad and I'm to lazy and don't feel like driving in the dark for hours. But I have been active today, I went and hiked the Cook-Trail. A short trail that starts close to my hostel and takes you down to the ocean to the exact place Captain Cook was killed. I know that because there is a monument to his honor. This place is also popular with snorkelers, although most of them arrive by boat instead of hiking. Afterwards it was time for some driving today, there were a few spots I saw along the way yesterday and wanted to take a closer look at. One was Southpoint which unfortunately was closed due to a bush-fire. The other is what you see here: Black Sand Beach. Another reminder of the islands volcanic origin and unsurprisingly a popular tourist spot. I didn't get exactly the photo I had in mind because of all the people but I guess this one is still acceptable and shows the black sand in a more interesting way.
