On Saturday, my husband and I decided to splurge and do a 45 minute helicopter tour over parts of the big island. The day before we arrived in Hawaii, the lava flows had stopped, and we prayed that they would start up again. (My husband really wanted me to be able to see this.) Our tour was at 2 p.m., and the pilot told us that at noon, the lava had started flowing again. It was pretty cool to be able to see this from up in the air. Pete thoroughly enjoyed the helicopter ride, and I enjoyed it too, until about halfway through the trip when I started getting nauseaous. Fortunately, I didn’t throw up. I had to stop taking pictures and just sit there calmly. Anyhow, here are a few pictures from our flight.
On Tuesday, we fly to Oahu!
