Papakōlea Beach and Princess Coralena

04 Sep

Mommy has a friend from work named I.B.  He recently went all the way to Hawaii for vacation with his family. 

Before he left, mommy asked him to bring Bashful back a friend.  Isn’t that sweet of her?  Someone to keep Bashful company when he gets back home from France.  Someone he can hang out with at the Hotel Thompson.  Someone he can actually talk to face to face instead of skyping all of his rock friends.  You know, someone he can just hang with.


Well, emails were sent back and forth during the vacation between mom and I.B.  When he came back to work, he brought back a friend.  Let me tell you the story.




One day, I.B. and his family traveled to Papakōlea Beach.  I.B. took all of these gorgeous pictures of the beach that he gave to mommy to share on this post.  Aren’t they amazing!?

Papakōlea Beach is also known as Green Sand Beach or Mahana Beach.  It is one of only FOUR green beaches in the world.  That’s right.  I said green beaches.   The sand coloring comes from a mineral called olivine.  Olivine is a common mineral component of Hawaiian lavas and is one of the first crystals to form as magma cools.

You learned something new, didn’t you? Let me add this – locally in Hawaii, olivine is known as Hawaiian Diamond.  Sounds rich doesn’t it?

So I.B. and his family went to this Green Sand Beach.  The only way to get to it  is by foot and climbing down a cinder cone.  And you are probably asking yourself, “Self, what is a cinder cone?”  Snorts – I’ll admit it.  I had to look that one up myself friends.  Let’s have a quick science lesson shall we.  A cinder cone is part of a volcano.  Cinders look kind of glassy.  This glassy look is made by gas bubbles that were frozen into place as the magma exploded into the air and then cooled quickly.

 This sounds like a mysterious and magical place in a land far, far away from us here at the Hotel Thompson.nd Beach is a bay circled by Puʻu Mahana.  Puʻu Mahana is a cinder cone that was formed over 49,000 years ago.  The cinder cone has partially collapsed and been eroded by the ocean.

You know, I wanted to know exactly how many miles that was from my home so I asked Jeeves 🙂 Jeeves said it was roughly 4,497.00 miles one way.  WOW!  That’s a lot of miles!


You know there is a reason why I’m going over all of the facts about this beautiful place and I.B.’s vacation.  He brought back a “friend” for Bashful.  Now Bashful hasn’t met this friend yet because he’s still traveling home from France.  But, I wanted to introduce her to all of my friends here.  She’s been with us for about a week now and yep I said “SHE” as in hubba-hubba.


This is Princess Coralena – all the way from Papakōlea Beach, Hawaii.  Isn’t she a looker?  So curvy and so much woman!  I just know that Bashful is going to fall in love.  I mean heck, me and daddy already have!  Snorts – what’s not to love with those pouty lips.  I think she has this little piggy wrapped right around her anywhere she wants!

Personally, I think she has been reincarnated from one of the virgin sacrifices they used to do in volcanoes.  I mean look at her – she’s gorgeous!

What do you think about Bashful’s new friend?  I’m personally thinking we are going to have to keep them separated at bedtime.  We don’t need any pebbles under feet right now.  They are both WAY too young.

      She is beautiful, isn’t she? Her coloring is remarkable and that matches her personality – she is the cutest and sweetest thing around the house. She never raises her voice and acts just like a lady pebble. XOXO – Bacon

    First I have a question for you, Bacon: Do I look smarter? Because I really learned some stuff reading this post. 🙂 Now on to Princess Coralena. She is gorgeous! When Bashful gets his first glimpse of her, I have a feeling he’ll be speechless!
