“We need to go to the Place of Refuge today.” That was the thought that woke me on the first full day of our recent Big Island visit.
We’ve been to Puuhonau o Honaunau National Historical Park, commonly known as the Place of Refuge, on two other trips and we didn’t have plans to return on this visit, but for some reason, we were drawn back to Puuhonau o Honaunau. Oh, I’m so glad we were as we enjoyed a sunny, peaceful morning.
On previous visits to the Place of Refuge, the skies were a bit overcast. On this recent visit, the skies were wonderfully sunny – making this historic spot so vibrant.
I want to share this morning visit with photos.
To conclude our visit to Puuhonua o Honaunau, we admired a honu (Hawaiian sea turtle) resting on the shore.
As you can see, that awakening thought that we needed to go to the Place of Refuge resulted in a sunny reward.
