Just two weeks ago I was on the big island recharging my Vitamin D batteries for the winter, as well as drumming with 7 other women at a Women's drumming retreat.
The trip was more spectacular than I imagined: the fruit more delicious, stars brighter, volcanos even more awe inspiring and the drumming more beautiful than I ever envisioned.
I flew to Kona with few expectations and left feeling inspired and rested.
On my second day in Hilo, I took an 8 hour volcano tour which took us first to Rainbow falls, then to the recent lava flows-where they flow into the ocean. Then to an underground lava tube, as well as to scenics of the volcano at night. And the stars-so spectacular.
The best part was soaking it all in, enjoying it with no one else to worry about. Being a singleton on a small group tour was lovely.
