The water in Hawaii is so blue! And there are sea turtles everywhere, which is awesome; I swear I saw Crush and Squirt the other day. But one thing that you may or may not know about the Big Island in Hawaii (I certainly did not) is that it is mostly lava. Yes, brown, craggly lava. Certainly not the oasis of palm trees and awesome beaches that it is stereotyped to be (although those do exist on the island in spots). Apparently, the stereotypical Hawaii is on the islands of Oahu and Maui. But back to the lava- it is everywhere! It looks kinda gross, like you are driving through the desert or something, with the huge Mt. Doom looming in the background. I guess what I'm trying to say it that it caught me off guard.
