These are a few shots from the grounds of a hotel in that isn't there anymore.

The open-air lounge jutted out over made of . A bridge labeled Kapu (forbidden) led to the next resort over, which had already been torn down.

It was on the Kona (west) side of the Big Island, and was demolished last year to make way for an educational/cultural center. Since there are several heiau ruins on the property, that's probably a better use of it.


Realized in all the editing I dropped the *name* of the place. It was the Keauhou Beach Resort. I stayed there for a week in 2005, and took these pictures on an afternoon (or morning) when we weren't going anywhere else.
