To The Beach!

First things first, we had to show GG and Sherry some of the spectacular views on the island.

The south-east part of the island has some really glorious scenery.

We went to the "From Here To Eternity" beach.

And to the Halona Blowhole which, frankly, wasn't blowing much. We did however, get to see an idiot tourist and his (I assume) bikini-clad wife climb past the safety railing and march all around the blowhole trying to get good pictures of it. Every year someone is killed or injured doing this. I had my camera at the ready, hoping to get a good shot if they got swept away, but it didn't happen. (If I sound uncaring, I apologize. There were warning signs everywhere and you just can't protect a fool from himself.)

When we drove back by a couple of hours later, there was a fire truck, an ambulance, and several police cars there and they had the road blocked off. I searched the papers for a couple of days, but could find no mention of what happened.

Since Hanauma Bay - our original destination - was closed for the day, we headed a little further down the road to Sandy Beach.

Sherry and Kerry buried the girls in the sand. I'm not sure who enjoyed it the most.

Sandy Beach is not a good beach for swimming. The waves are aggressive and experienced body boarders and surfers are the only ones who need to go in past their ankles. We like to just stand on the beach and let the waves knock us around a little.

It's fun to let the waves drag you around. And if you don't really like the water........

You can always just sit on the beach and soak up the sun.
