  • 10:30 Back from an evening watching lava flow into the sea. All four elements - earth, air, fire, water. Spectacular. Red gold light.
  • 10:32 There was also a breakthrough up the slopes. First the trees caught fire, then the lava rolled down the slope. Geography in action.
  • 11:09 Introduced species fail: the mongoose in Hawaii. Mongoose are diurnal. Rats are nocturnal. Predator does not eat prey. Result: nene gone.
  • 20:19 The Dolphin Bay Hotel here in Hilo leaves a stem of apple bananas out every morning for guests to pick their own breakfast. Mmmm.
  • 20:20 Going through last night's eruption pictures. The long exposures with manual focus have come out really well. GorillaPod FTW.
  • 20:51 Elements of eruption: www.flickr.com/photos/sbisson/3626386050/

One of my ambitions is to watch lava flow into the sea. Your recent posts have reminded me that I have got to get to Hawaii, though like you I'm not a habitual foreign traveller. We'll try and include it in our next round-the-world trip I think (currently pencilled in for 2015).

It's an amazing place. And really quite inexpensive, too - especially if you're already on the west coast of the US (which we were).
