Ka Lea

We went on down the coast to Ka Lae...the most Southern point of the USA.  This point of land extends out from the coast and is relatively flat...and very windy.  The shrubs and small trees grow bent with the predominent winds.  When we arrived the wind was blowing a gale and it was dramatic as a result.  The sandy soil was being driven against our skin...and it was hot, hot, hot! There were high cliffs where people jump to the sea below....too scary for me...but one brave soul was perched on the cliff top, plucking up his courage!  The sea was crashing in with the wave tops being blown off in the incredible winds.  It was so strange to be in such a windy, stormy spot and to be so warm!  When we got into the relative calm of the car we were picking sand from our teeth, or eyebrows and our ears.
