And now for something completely different

On Friday I went north in search of Hawaii Island not under the thrall of the eruption, and to my great surprise, I readily found it.

I had an agenda but got distracted.  I made new friends.  I found indications of Puna Pride, yet I also spoke with people who did not know what was happening in Lower Puna.  I saw a lot of lush greenery and tourists posing in front of waterfalls.  I stopped into a cemetery I passed along the way.

The day was a relief for me, but a relief tinged with guilt I could not shake.

Here are photos in lieu of more words.
