Green Sands Beach

A while ago, I went to Green Sands Beach with my family, Brady, Hamblin, the Ay's, and the Beaz's. All of the boys got into our car and all of the girls got into the Beaz’s car (named Kevin). On our way to Green Sands we stopped at Punalu’u Bakery to get a snack and to meet up with the Ay's. The treats at the bakery looked super delicious and sugary. After we ate, we went to South Point and several of the people in our group jumped off the 40 foot cliff into the ocean, but I didn’t feel up to it yet. I thought South Point was too high for me. We then piled back into the cars and headed off to Green Sands Beach, a short 5 minute drive away. When we got to the parking lot for Green Sands, we arranged which people were to ride in Kevin down to the beach and which of us would take the shuttle. I got to go in Kevin, and we listened to music the whole way down. The coolest part about the ride was blasting music from the speaker. We got to the actual beach in about 20 minutes (from the parking lot), and we got all of the things we needed out of the car, including our towels and food. We walked down the trail to the beach.  It was not as green as I expected but it was still pretty cool. There were occasional big waves so we had to watch out for them when we were playing tag in the ocean. The hill that went down to the beach was all sand so we jumped down it and saw who could make it down to the ocean in the fewest number of jumps. When we were all tired we got in the shuttle and Kevin and went back to the parking lot to get our car to head home. On our way home, we went to Volcanoes National Park and we got to see the caldera boiling and glowing in the dark. We saw lava when it popped and bubbled because it was really high up in the crater. I thought it was really bright because it lit up the sky about fifty feet in every direction. When we got home we were super tired, so we went straight to bed. We had so much fun.
