This is a view from the road looking out towards the ocean. I think we were about half way through the drive at this point. The water ponds you see are for growing taro, a plant the Hawaiians use to make poi. If you've never had it, poi is the ground up taro root made into a yummy paste. OK. it's not so yummy. If you have ever accidentally gotten wallpaper paste in your mouth then you know just about what poi tastes like. I think you need to be REALLY hungry to enjoy poi!
One of the many one lane bridges you have to cross on your way to Hana.
