The path down to the green sand beach

The road to the green sand beach is about 8 miles from the highway. The path to the beach, meandering, another 2-3 miles (depending on your information). Sun, wind, and no shade.

A very nice couple from St. Louis offered us rides part of the way each way. We gratefully accepted their offer. (I’d wanted to walk the whole way–and did not bring anywhere near enough water.)

A naupaka flower--each bloom is only half (now there's a metaphor...)
