we heard the crashing of the waves and felt the warmth of the tropical sun. Our first day was spent learning our way around the island and sitting on the beaches. The second day, we took the drive to Hana, a famous windy route filled with interesting and beautiful places to stop.
A common thing one sees on the Hawaiian islands is surfing. It really is a fascinating sport and one I myself could never learn. Where we were watching the surfers had huge rocks all along the shore. It was not those pretty beach rocks seen at our condo beach above, but these big babies here. The little dots bobbing are surfers.
Today, we were out driving around the island. We went through the rainforest where it rained excessively to see many waterfalls, some of which were somewhat difficult to get to. We made our way through a bamboo forest, over large boulders, and through fast-moving streams to see water falling into sparkling, gem-like colored streams.
One waterfall was more pretty than the next.
A rainbow started a day with whales and sea turtles seen numerous times which was quite a treat, but watching the surfing was a lot of fun. Tomorrow, we hope to go snorkeling. I hope to find some interesting things you may enjoy and will do my best to get them posted. By the way, I did see Northern Cardinals.
Just a note. Some of your blogs I can not access. I tried quite a few times. It may be the iPad or our modem here at the condo. I will make my best effort to see your posts, but sorry if your blogs are those of which I have been having trouble.
