I love to visit old churches and find historical sites. I like botanical gardens too. Anything touristy I usually shy away from! Never been to a luau in all these years, LOL
I love exploring the backroads! I found this old church on the Big Island that had been destroyed by a tsunami and not rebuilt, but people had come back and left hand written prayers, candles, a cross and small objects that meant something to them. This was in a very obscure place and certainly not listing in travel books!

Fun!!! Thanks for sharing!! I thought I was the only one interested in old churches Rolling my eyes.
Here's a photo of the Star of the Sea church, the one that was in the path of lava and they had to rush and get it up on beams and move it. They just left if by the side of the road for years.

Now that we're off on a church tangent, here is the "Painted Church" by the same missionary near the City of Refuge.

You have to see inside to know why it's called the "painted church"

I have to look them all up on a map. That would be so fun! I'll have to start planning a trip, but probably won't be able to go till September now. I just went to the Big Island in March.

I went to Maui last Oct. I won't be going back for awhile. I will be spending a week on the Oregon coast this Aug. and I am looking forward to that. On my next visit to the Islands I would like to check out Kauai. I have not seen any of the other Islands so I need to think about seeing one of them. It is hard because I love Maui, I may have to do a week on one of the other Islands and a week on Maui. I will go back and post the directions to the churches so that you will know where they are.

Thanks Patti! I feel the same way, I've been going to the Big Island for so many years and just love it that it's hard to think of going over there and being on another island....but I need to try to broaden my horizons!

I just got back from the Big Island again. We stayed half the time in Volcano and the other half on the sunny side in Honaunau.
Here are tons of our photos:

Beth,
All of your pictures are wonderful! Do you all kayak a lot? Where do you stay when you go? It looks very interesting and like a fun place. I love the pictures of the fruit and your green friend Hilarious! Is that a Gecko? The ones that I have seen over there are brown. I like your green pet a lot. I will go look at them again, I never get tired of looking at pictures of Hawaii. Thanks so much for sharing Group hug

Maui

Maui is truly one of the most spiritual places in the world. I love this Island and I am sure that I am not alone. This is a place for anyone interested in Maui whether you have been, plan to go or just want to see what others are saying about it.
