Kailua Kona

Aloha! Welcome to Hawaii!

In times like ours flying is something special again, and with the necessary precautions it’s even more exciting than it has ever been. Welcome to Hawaii, aloha!
Nearly there, we can almost see touch the clear turquois water already lol
A bit drier than I expected it to be for a tropical island, but it’s been not long that it was still erupting so a bit of cold lava is probably fair :)
