As I am sure many of you have been as well, Ad and I have been riveted and dismayed by the stories of the Puna Lava Flow (Hawaii Lava Flow Destroys First Home, Dozens Of Others Threatened.)
It is both beautiful and terrible, and reminds me how puny we humans really are, in the face of Mother Nature. It also reminds me that one of Ad’s “bucket list” items is to see a live volcano – tho not that live.
And it also reminded me of some more pictures we took while we were on Eleuthera for another (hopeful) Scavenger Hunt. I knew that “lava,” “volcanic rocks,” or “lava flow” wasn’t on the list, but it seemed too good an opportunity to pass up, in case Dee could be convinced to add it to the Scavenger Hunt Locations list.
I was actually really surprised to see what looked like lava rocks on the island, but it turns out that many of the islands were formed by volcanic activity, which has left behind the unmistakeable, sharp, black, rocky outcroppings you see here.
So there you have it, almost our last Scavenger Hunt on Eleuthera (if Dee says it is a location)! I think I have two more before we move on…
I had hoped we might be going back to Eleuthera this summer actually, in fact had started looking at properties to rent in earnest, but then…well, then the house happened. Oddly, I don’t mind giving up my summer vacation. :-D
