Lava sculptures at the seaside...

This is not technically from Hilo town but I had to share it anyway...I took this at the shore in a subdivision named Hawaiian Paradise Park (HPP) about 20 minutes from Hilo, it is a Lava formation right on the surf break and it reminds me of the way the Venus De Milo's cloth drapes and folds across the statue...you can just imagine the hot lava gathering and cooling in these incredible ripples and folds. This is a especially neat formation but similar ones can be found all across south east Hawaii...(a little perspective for this photo; The rocks to the upper right are about the size of an adults head.)

Aren't they neat? Sometimes the "flow" will be huge...6-8 inches between "folds", and sometimes small and delicate like this one...
