Haiku Poem – ツーステップビーチ

acres of coral
jewels of black rock and sand
two steps Hawaii

(Jim Woodhull)
くろい いわ うみ の おうかん コナ ハワイ

My favorite beach diving spot in all of the islands is a place called Two Steps that is on the Island of Hawaii and is about a 45 minute drive from the city of Kona. It got its name from the natural formation of the rocks going into the ocean that look like two steps. The scenery is absolutely beautiful. There are some houses and also some original Hawaiian settlements there that serve as a type of museum. The ocean is very beautiful and the coral is very healthy and because of the usual calmness of the ocean there is a very large reef system. There are many kinds of fish, dolphins and a beautiful black rock and black sand beach. The rocks are never slippery even when they are wet. To me, for all of the beautiful beaches the Hawaiian Islands have to offer Two Steps is my favorite.
