Photo Friday: An Education

Learning about Volcanoes on Oahu
Learning about Volcanoes on Oahu

When I first suggested to my kids that we visit Hawaii, they flat out refused. I couldn't have been more confused - isn't Hawaii every child's dream vacation? It turned out they were worried about the Volcanoes and it took quite a bit of convincing to get them to agree to the trip.

Once there, I thought it would be fun to learn a bit more about how Volcanoes work at The Bishop Museum.. It was fun to watch as a once-abstract subject came alive in their eyes.

What is Photo Friday?

  • Post a travel photo on your site. It can be about any topic, as long as it is G-rated.
  • The focus of the post should be on your photo.
  • You don't need to be a professional photographer (I'm not), but do showcase your best work, and make it big enough to see well!
  • It's nice to include a few sentences about the photo, but it is not required.
  • Link back here so that your readers can see all the other great Photo Friday posts.

        I don't know what's happening, but I can't get the entry fields to add to the list in either IE or Firefox. The upside of jetlag in Kauai? Wanted to add that I can totally appreciate the kids' response to visiting a volcanic island! ;-) Once had to explain why it's "good" to sleep with a view of the volcano! Then had to be glad we were on the high ground as I thought it over in the night... ;-)

        I am not able to link up either. Do I have to login or something first?

        My guys get scared of volcanoes too! We had to bribe them with promises of a zillion things to get them to go into the lava tube because we called it a lava tube and not just a tube. Hopefully we'll get to the Bishop Museum one of these trips:)
