Best thing I've done in ages! We took a helicopter and flew over Big Island to the point where the molten lava flows into the ocean from the current eruption at the Kilauea Volcano. Honestly this was a true once in a lifetime experience, and I don't say that lightly. I am still grinning from ear to ear. Those aren't clouds, that's all the steam from the boiling seawater billowing upwards. Jaw dropping stuff. Oh, and I've decided I LOVE helicopters too - what a buzz! This could become an expensive habit... #volcano#lavaflow#travelgram
A wee bit back logged!!! This last week I was very focused on the projects that needed to be completed before my current guest in the Airbnb arrived.
Painting, shopping, laundering, putting together furniture... I'm so proud of the space I have created.
Photos to follow shortly.
Since I tightened the last bolt in the coffee table just as my guest arrived, I didn't have a chance to take updated photos.
Suffice to say, my soul and energy is felt in every inch of that bohemian~beachy cottage apartment.
I love it!
In other Island news... I did squeeze in a couple of snorkeling sessions.
I saw my first eel in Wai Opea.
I'm still a bit of a chicken (I guess you could call me Chicken of the Sea! OMG! Haha).
It wasn't very big, but its mouth was open and... Ya... I swam off to find an eel free zone.
I also am a bit of a chicken if I even think there is a jelly fish looking creature in the vicinity.
I'm confident that the more I snorkel the less intimidated I'll be by all of the critters.
I love swimming with the fish.
When your head goes into the water it's like sliding into a different reality.
It's so peaceful and meditative.
Your breathing becomes very rhythmic and it's quiet.
Since your eyes are tuned in to what is swimming around you, you are completely in the moment.
No regrets of yesterdays and no worries about tomorrows.
Healing... Photo taken out on the lava beds just past Uncle Robert's at sunset... Mahalo~
