Rainbow’s New Hiking Boots – Walking Towards the Big Volcanic Arch Hawaii – Day 2
Above are some videos from a couple of trips we took to the Big Volcanic Arch on the East Coast of the Big Island of Hawaii.
It wasn’t until our last trip that we spent a lot of time there. We got there much earlier and were able to spend time in there when the water was almost bath tub warm. There are no videos from the last trip.
And I did not include several other really cute videos that we took because Rainbow was swimming in her birthday suit.
What many people don’t know is that the water in Hawaii from the Ocean is not necessarily super warm. While it’s warmer than the beach water in NJ in July and August, it’s still not as warm as in Costa Rica or Panama.
We all tend to prefer warmer water to swim in. Or at least very hot days to counteract the cooler water.
At the southern tip of Hawaii (at Green Sand Beach) the water is much warmer. And of course in the summer months it gets warmer as well.
The tide pools can get quite hot if they’re its low tide and the sun is shining brightly. We had a hard time walking on the rocks barefoot because it got so hot. To deal with that we splashed water on the black volcanic rocks where we planned on walking.
Outdoor temperatures here on the East Side of Hawaii tend to be in the low 80′s (Fahrenheit) in terms of Celsius right now it’s about 27 degrees. But it can on occasion get up to around 90 degrees.
Hope you enjoyed the videos.
I have several more videos of the kids and Hawaii kind of stuff that I could upload to Youtube. Just let me know if you’d be interested in seeing more by making a comment in the comments section below.

P.S. In case you missed it. Here’s the link to the previous post in which I included pictures of the same trips to the Big Black Volcanic Arch here on the East Coast of the Big Island of Hawaii.
