We started the day with a HUGE breakfast at KOA Pancake House (yum!) and then headed to Ko’Olina beach (lagoon 4) to catch some sun… it was stunning and beautiful for the first hour we were there and then this giant gray cloud moved in *frown.” We met our friend Mark and just sat on the beach chatting, hoping that damn cloud would leave… but it didn’t.
So we packed it up and headed to pick G up from school. We tossed some sandwiches into a cooler and headed for the North Shore. Stopping at the Dole Plantation to pick up some goodies along the way.
So while I snapped iconic photos of the Hawaiian sunset, B & G explored the tide pools finding all sorts of wildlife. B found an eel, and fortunately this time from afar. No medical attention needed unlike my last trip. Wheew!
I have about twenty shots in various angles and such of this beautiful spot and honestly they barely do the real thing justice. The light. The surfers paddling along the still water. Palm trees make the most beautiful sound with a little wind blowing through the branches. And then there were these assholes – mucking it up!
Then kept climbing on top of that stump talking about how the other person(s) should take their photo. Laughing. Being loud. “Now take a video of us down here and pretend we’re mermaids.” Really? Come on people. Let the rest of us enjoy this stunning sight in peace. It not only annoys me when people disrespect this type of moment, but makes me sad that it’s completely lost to some… Look around you. Take it in. This is nature at it’s purest and most magnificent. Aloha!
