Spouting Horn Blowhole In Kauai, Hawaii, Pictured On An Attractive Acrylic Fridge Magnet
The magnificent natural sight of Spouting Horn Blowhole on the island of Kauai in Hawaii is one of the most photographed scenes on the island. The blow hole was created when the waves of the ocean eroded lava rocks creating a thin opening where water can crash through. As the water blows through the hole a hissing sound can be heard. It is a spectacular occurrence with the spray reaching as high as fifty feet on occasion. This attractive acrylic fridge magnet, from the catalogues of world Wide Gifts, depicts Spouting Horn Blow Hole in all its beauty.
The Folklore Of The Popular Tourist Attraction Of Spouting Horn Blow Hole, On The Island Of Kauai In Hawaii
Even more enticing than the natural formation of Spouting Horn Blow Hole is the local legend of how it got its familiar sound. Hawaiian folklore tells the story of a young man named Liko and a giant lizard. One day Liko stood up to the creature that threatened people fishing and swimming in the area. The boy stabbed the lizard in the mouth with a sharp stick and dived into the water. He then swam through the blow hole. The lizard followed and became stuck. Since then every time the water spouts through the hole the lizard's cry can be heard. This is a lovely story about a natural phenomenon which in itself is a truly lovely sight as displayed on our attractive acrylic fridge magnet.
