I lived on the Big Island for about 8 years, in the '70's before it became a tourist mecca. Went back for a visit in 2017 and it was shocking how things had changed...

Here's some Honu.. Punaluu, Kona side, one of them is a spy :oops:

*Edit. It is a live Sea Turtle, not animatronic. It’s just wearing a gps device ;)

Spy tortoise? I saw a program this past month, and the wide variety of spy creatures they showed 'at work' was incredible! In many cases, the movements of the spy made me wonder, "How did they do that?!", and I wished there was a program about the creation/engineering of these incredible devices.
Spy whale, spy octopus, spy eel, spy sea lion, spy hermit crab...to name a few.

No, I've seen that also, this turtle has a gps tracker stuck to him/her.. You can see the little antennae. I pretty sure it's just tracking/mapping movements. No animatronics here.

What part of CA are you located in? We have a nice Hawaiian themed restaurant with good food in San Carlos, and a little Hawaiian-oriented market in San Mateo that makes stuff to order and also makes ahead almost a dozen varieties of musubi and several Hawaiian fried rice. I go there when I need a musubi fix, so much better selection than L&L Hawaiian

I'm in orange county in Huntington Beach area. Just looked up San Carlos, too far for me to try :(

There is a restaurant here in Carson called 'Back Home in Lahaina' that makes exceptional food. L&L was good but the quality here has gone down and the price up. It's hard to get L&L when I can get something way better for the same price. I'm not so sure about pricing now since I have not gone to either one for months now. I just posted a picture of my favorite dish at Lahaina :)

 
My first and only trip was on the touristy side as I was there for a wedding. Ko Olina has kind of a hidden beach just outside where the Aulani and the other resorts are. Cool place to catch some photos and witness some surreal waves....the lagoon where the resorts are really insulates the resorts from the waves. Fair warning, I got hit with some nasty waves while camera was on a tripod. They come at you pretty quickly so be ready and if there is ever a time to have a weather sealed setup, its there. My one mistake was not putting the hotshoe cover on.

awesome and beautiful beach. Thanks for sharing the pictures and the story. so what happened to your camera? lol
 
Olivine is found where there is volcanic activity.
There is a beach on the Big Island that is made of Olivine
It is an amazing place and difficult to get to in the past, but inventive locals use their 4x vehicles to ferry folks there for a fee.
I had to walk there :cautious:
LoL
