    From our Hawaiian vacation - sorry the bottom got cut off when I scanned it so the word "hole" is not completely visible.

    Here is the journaling:

    I remember seeing Blowhole while we lived in Hawaii when I was eight years old and what I remembered seeing and hearing about it was how it was something you “had” to see. I wanted to make sure we saw it again. On our road trip with dad on Monday, he stopped at the Halona Blowhole Lookout for us. My first impression this time was, “That’s it?” It was such a disappointment from what I remember when I was a kid and Craig and Willie were similarly disappointed and wasn’t worth stopping for.

    The blowhole is a natural occurrence formed by molten lava tubes from volcanic eruptions thousands of years ago. The lava tubes run to the ocean and, when the surf is right, the blowhole shoots water up to 30 feet in the air. The larger the waves, the larger the spray, this is best seen on a windy day at high tide
