I haven't gone to the Kilauea lighthouse for a few years. For some time I thought I was actually allergic to something there and so I stayed away. This year however I finally made it back there because I finally learned what has been ailing me.
I've missed the amazing views and the bird colonies.
Seriously, I think I could spend all day here just watching it all happen. Did I mention there are whales too?
Hello Ne Ne!
Red footed boobies
The lighthouse it's self is actually under some kind of construction. I assume it is a restoration project. There were actually no signs posted about the process.

Such a little boat in such a big ocean!
Can you see the boat? No? Believe me it is down there.
I am rather over seeing a bunch of amateur photographers out and about with gigantic SLR cameras.
I am pretty sure most of these tourists don't actually know how to use most the features on their SLR cameras.
A frigate bird. I could watch these guys for a long time. There is something very relaxing about how they fly through the air.
