The hut in the photo below was at one time a burial place for Kings.
This is the Hawaiian equivalent of the board games checkers or chess. They took their games pretty serious. If you lose, you might also lose your life.
This wall is 700 years old and is built with dry stacked lava rocks. It is 900 feet long and 17 feet thick. It has withstood hurricanes and tsunami's for all those years without damage.
Even today, there are offerings left at the hut to the gods.
A sea turtle in a pool of water at the park. If it were a sunny day, there would be 10 or so turtles sunning themselves on the beach.
A typical Hawaiian shelter.
Canoes are under construction inside the shelter. This one was there in 1987 on my first visit to the park. I'll bet it has never been in the water.
Here is a newer one that looks sea worthy.
