Some days we just decide to go for a drive around the Island to see if we can find a little piece of something special. I don’t remember exactly where we went on this particular day other than over on the east side of the island, but it ended with us stopping at Laupahoehoe Point County Park. It was our first time visiting, and so far we haven’t made it back, but I am sure that we will go back there one day.
It is something special
We were not exactly sure what to expect when while we were driving down the road to get there, mainly because what we saw was what appeared to be a park while looking out the window and the GPS confirmed it was a park. However, what we didn’t know was if it was a beach type park, a playground, or what. For all we knew it was just a forest area with the ocean at the end of it.
As you can tell, Thaddeus enjoys the view from Laupahoehoe Point County Park. He loves just to sit and stare off into the ocean, however, this time, I was able to get him looking towards the land.
It is just fascinating the way the island was created and the beauty that it has become!
Being at Laupahoehoe County Park reminds me a lot of Keokea Beach Park because they are both locations that you can just reflect and relax while listing to the ocean. I’m not sure which of these places I like the most; they are both very relaxing and something special, each in their way. I think I might like Laupahoehoe County Park a little more because it is a bit closer to home for us. However, I love a good road trip and heading to Keokea Beach Park makes for one great road trip!
