Just a 45 minute trek off the road are the Kaitoke Hot Springs, or hot pools as seen in the picture above. Thermal hot water comes out of the mountain somewhere and comes down in a couple of streams, collecting in a few large pools like the one in the photo.

The water was quite hot, too hot in some places. It felt great to relax in the hot water, although the girls thought it was too hot to go in. I would say in the areas that were not too hot to be in, it was about as hot as the hottest hot tub you’ve been in.

Your photos of the Island are all so beautiful. And your descriptions are great, too. It’s amazing just to think of being on an island where there are no lights. I think the guy doing the wheelies was just trying to prove that the island was inhabited by someone who had modern technology–and to remind you that you weren’t all by yourselves.

You’re having the adventure of a lifetime.
