|Black Sand Beach|
The edge of the black sand beach is lined with smooth pumice stones of various sizes. A lot of people build little rock monuments to their visit in Hawaii. So Jessica, Dylan and Siobhan decided to do the same.
Imagine our surprise when a man nearby burst into spontaneous applause as Dylan finished his tower of rock. The man said that Dylan should be an engineer, and asked what we have in our blood. I was so surprised I didn't know how to answer, too bad I never mentioned home-schooling!
In the mean time Jessica was creating a colony which drew attention from every passerby, and most of them took photo's of the artist at work. She is thinking of pursuing a career in sculpture since she is already famous, and wants to know how often we can return to that beach!

Siobhan took advantage of the tallest rock on the beach and built her monument on that.
It certainly feels strange to pick up huge boulders as if they were made of cardboard, the pumice has so many holes it's very light. Pedicures are a thing of the past, the pumice beach beach scrubs our feet for us. Couldn't get better than that!
The history of this valley is fascinating, Hawaiian legends, kings, ghosts, and Tsunami's. The current residents are reputed to be a wild lot who definitely don't like tourists.
