Makapu'u tidepools

Friday, August 20, 2010

Since we had a half-day holiday at Y&M CQ rounded up a bunch of us and we went hiking up (and down!) the Makapu'u trail. It was a gorgeous but HOT day, thank god I loaded myself up with sunscreen, I think I would've been burnt to a crisp!

Here we go!
The hike never even start yet and the two baboozes are already sidetracked!!
Ok, that's much better...here we go! again!
This is where we made the trek down to the tidepools. Here's Jalna surveying the area...
YOU GUYS ARE GOING DOWN THERE?!?!? (I guess that means she's not coming with us...)
Jalna and CQ's "sexy" pose
Since she didn't want to hike down, she decided to sit there and enjoy the view
and then meditate while looking constipated.
Since Jalna and Susie decided not to join us, they hiked all the way up to the lighthouse. You can see the beautiful views here...
Let's get this party started!

Hi Runa!
We're almost there! I think!
Wooo hooo! We finally made it!
The tidepools were beautiful down there
Deborah, CQ and Alison took a dip in one of them, the water looked very tempting!
As the tide started to rise we decided it was time for us to head back up...waaaay up there....

Do you have a picture of me in the tide pool?

Jalna - oh my gawwwwddd...so freakin steep. I'm soo glad you never came with us, you would've hated me after that!

Allison - yah, you guys are tiny though, I can send it to you.

Great pictures, Les. Seeing that blue, blue ocean makes me so homesick. You all were so brave going down to the water. And then there's Jalna...so funny!! :)

Les said...

Thanks Betty! Yah, it's always fun with Jalna around, she cracks me up!

Great shots! I love how your water is so saturated, even the pond photos. Great job.
