... being landlocked draws you to the ocean. We have enjoyed exploring the beaches, on foot, and have found some beauties. Our most recent discovery was Onekahakaha Beach Park, in south Hilo.

As we started to head inland and towards the other coast, you could see a change in the scenery. The side we were staying on is mostly volcanic, so unless you're in a resort area that is well-maintained and regularly irrigated, it's completely dry like a desert. However, once you start driving around where you actually get some rain, there are trees and fields for farming. And then, once we were on the Old Mamalohoa ...
