The Southernmost Point in the US

Today, Bill turned 52.

Today, we drove from Kailua-Kona to South Point and beyond.

Pass the Black Pebble Beach in South Kona
zebra and donkeys. south Kona (c) Engela Edwards 2012
Pass the zebra , donkey, and buffalo.
South Point, Hawaii (c) Engela Edwards 2012
Pass the horses and windmills.
We stood on the cliffs at the most southern point of the US.

With it’s strange gallows like contraptions, whose block and tackles once lowered boats to the sea. 
Windy going to Green Sands Hawaii South Point, Hawaii (c) Engela Edwards 2012
Then on into the wind.

Windy going to Green Sands Hawaii South Point, Hawaii (c) Engela Edwards 2012
Where the pathway to Green Sand beaches,
Passes white caps on blue water, and green plants with yellow flowers hug red earth on black lava.
It was a nice birthday trip.  We saw beautiful scenery, and only a handful of people.
