Exploring Kona.....

2 weeks before our Kona trip, Nate went to Kona with his Hawaiian Studies class to go sailing. His teachers showed them some ancient Hawaiian spots that tourists don't know about. Nate took me to some of these spots and shared with me some of the stories. This spot is considered very sacred and holy to the Hawaiian people, so much so, that we are asked to take our shoes off as we walked around on the rocks. It is a cemetry full of tombstones symbolizing Hawaiian people who have passed away. It was gorgeous here and so peaceful.
