SANTA CRUZ ISLAND
Smile when you say that!


Can't really say the island was the tropic paradise with all those lovely ladies in grass skirts, or the men beating drums in a wild effort to show off their powerful muscles.  But then, even Maui wasn't quite like that.  No palm trees here, just the low bush a tree here and there, transplanted from elsewhere.  And a lot of yellow weed-like things.  A few structures, but nothing very impressive. In fact these pictures make it look a lot more exciting than it was. Caves and all.  It didn't even have a sandy beach on this end of the island.

Actually it was privately owned until recently when this part of the island was turned over - for a price - to the government as a State Park.


Coming to the landing "beach"!

Place where the late owners can, and were, staying.  Part of the deal of sale.
