At the seahorse farm in Kona they have a room of aquariums full of seahorses.
For more information check out their website Seahorse.
Since it is Valentines Day I’ll share more pictures of my new love, the seahorse. They really are extraordinary little beings.
This is my favourite. At the seahorse farm you have the opportunity to hold a seahorse. They wrap their tail around your fingers and just hang out. If you hold them long enough they get kinda sleepy and will lay their head against your hands.
It made me want one but since I can’t keep a cactus alive and the dog only lives because he drags his food bowl around reminding me to feed him, perhaps it’s not such a good idea just yet. They were so adorable though and had more personality than I thought they would.
One of my favourite tours ever, I went to a seahorse farm in Kona.
For more information on check out Seahorse which has lots of information and you can buy them!
I thought it would be pretty cool but the seahorses are just so amazing. They breed them and they swim around so cute. They will come an look you when you are standing outside the tanks.
Also when they are fed they all go for the food at once:
I could watch them for hours playing with each other wrapping their tails around each other. Their faces are so surreal. It was really a pleasure to see them.
At Volcano National Park we go to walk through a lave tube which was pretty cool. The lights in the tube give it a weird red glow and there is silvery moss as well that didn’t come out well in the pictures.
What is a lave tube? Wikipedia explains it better than I can Lave Tube.
It was fun to walk through and I couldn’t decide whether is was very hobbit like or dune like it was a very curious atmosphere.

People wandering through:
There are more than volcanos at Volcano National Park, the scenery is gorgeous. The plants are lush and then you turn around and it’s more barren.
It’s almost like apocalypse, no apocalypse, apocalypse….
It’s really the contrasting colours that I love even on the walkway:
The picture is a little blurry from steam coming up through a vent in the ground:
Without the steam:
Beautiful foliage (I just wanted to use that word):
It’s wonderful place and tomorrow the lava tube!
