Pu'uhonua O Honaunau NP -Joe 1
n May 2016, we traveled to Hawaii for a cruise aboard NCL's "Pride of America" cruise ship. The ship cruised round trip from Honolulu and visited three other islands.
Overnight the ship moved to the other side of "The Big Island", Hawaii, to Kona. Kona is a tendered port.
We had a shore excursion planned for each port and this was no exception. Two major stops on this tour. 1) St. Benedict's Church (The Painted Church) and Pu'uhonua O Honaunau National Park.
Pu'uhonua O Honaunau NP was, back in the day, a Hawaiian Village of Refuge. It was a self guided tour but our bus driver had given us some of the history as we approached.
Some sort of game.
