LAVA!

Here’s where one of the fingers of live lava from Madame Pele flows into the ocean. While I’m down with mild pneumonia (and Hawaii is a good place to be while sick), I did get out to the flow on new year’s eve and capture a few shots. I went with friend’s from the ‘end of the road’ side, as oppossed to the National Park (where they’d never let you get this close). It was awesome and there was a skyligh nearby where you could peer through a hole and see the lava running like a river underneath. Whoa!!!

Later on it was over to Uncle Robert’s Awa bar to drink the numbing mix , chill out and watch the keiki’s (children) light the fireworks and listen to a live, acoustic Hawaiian folk band . Some slack key guitar, ukele and falsetto voices make a delicious blend with the awa. A great way to bring in the new years, and Mahina (the moon) was shining almost full.

I did get camping for two days but it was raining state wide….hmmm. To date the weather’s not been on my side but the beauty still is and there’s always time to ‘talk story’ , like about the self proclaimed german kahuna trying to tell me the Godess was about to come back, kill all the men and liberate the women and children. Ah, right. I let her know Godess was here and she will be liberating everyone, she does not make things gender specific. The best part was I was with a real Hawaiian kahuna, who repllied to her, ‘I am just happy to be plain and simple me’.

Yup, there’s a self appointed guru in every crowd these days πŸ™‚

Also had some guy trying to hit on me but he was real creepy (hey, how come I don’t get the hunks?) and I told him to get away. Turns out he was a known pedophile so I guess the antenae were working. Oh, wait, I did have a hot guy hit on me…wow….almost forgot, it happens so rarely!!! Ya, gee, I think I even took his pic…don’t know if it would be appropriate to post though (no no no, he wasn’t naked, I just don’t have his permission!!!).

Camping attempt again soon now that the state-wide rain has ended. Meantime a friend is putting me up and I’m sleeping in an old warehouse (yup, when Scout holidays, only the best for me). As far as warehouses go, this has a 3 star rating :). Guess I should take a few shots just to show you my palatial quarters.

    scout,

    Take care of yourself and be well my friend.

    Oh, and the pretty red stuff that flows is really pretty nasty. The vapours can kill you BTW!

    Anyway, we have 3 inches of snow here in the Muskoka. Just roght. Letting Mother Nature do her thing, but not too much!

    Going to get really cold here tonight at -17C and Tuesday night at -25C! Enjoy the warmth while you can, eh?

    Hey scoutie! I was getting worried that you’d drowned in a sea of “awa”… pneumonia!? Ack. Take care of yourself, kiddo.

    Gorgeous pic of the volcano, BTW. I’m going to snag it and email it to someone if that’s ok with you! Take care, that’s an order!

    bill….ya last thing i need with pneumonia is the sulphur from the vog. i heard about the snow , wow, about time…..no no no, not that i’m wishing it on ya, but this global warming bit is pretty bizarre . still cold and some snow on the coast i hear, but sunny!!! will take care, am taking care, will continue to take care….off to see my kahuna friend uncle abel tomorrow and get worked on.
