Pictures from the top of Diamond Head.

Hiking to the top was a good work out. Its 8/10 of a mile with only 2/10 paved not to mention about 300 stairs mixed in with a long tunnel thru the mountain. You have a 360 degree view of the island from the top. Worth the hike but highly recommend training on a stair master before hand which I didnt do. Just kidding its not that bad.

Polynesian Cuulture Center

The PCC was great. If you like to see hot men with no shirts on this is the place to visit. Really it was great. The different islands they have for you to visit, the lua and the Horizons night show. Talk about alot of culture.





Fish pictures for Hayden

Hayden has been wanting some snorkeling pictures so here you are. We snorkeled at Hanauma Bay today which was absolutely great. A bit of practice for me at first but of course Ryan was a natural and very patient with me. Its been a while since we last snorkeled and now I know why here in Hawaii is a great place to do it. Once I got comfortable with all the gear and breathing it was sooooo much fun. Loved it.

Our view in the morning from our back door.

This was our view from our patio this morning. Be sure to scroll down to see the other postings. Enjoy.

Other Places we visited today.

We drove down the coast today and stopped at several beaches but we were trying to find the #1 beach on hawaii as advertised on the travel channel which is Lanikai Beach. Which we did find. Its the picture with the 2 islands in the back. The islands are called The Mokulua Islands and are sea bird sanctuaries which you can kayak out too. The tide here at this beach is so calm you can snorkel, kayak or just swim. Very nice soft beach where kids would be completely safe. No big waves at all. The other two pictures show how the rains have washed away some of the shore line. The owner of the house we are in said the rains and tides has washed away about 4 feet of beach just below us which included part of the rock stairs that lead down to the beach. Any how see ya soon.



BONZAI PIPELINE ON THE NORTH SHORE

here are some pictures of the Bonzia pipeline which had extremely large waves today probably because a storm is coming in. When we get home and can edit our pictures I have some to zoom up on with about 6 surfers out there. We sat out there for about 2 hours and just watched the waves and the sun set. I could sit out there all day.

Finally some pictures....Yeah

Here are some pictures of the places we have been so far. Enjoy.

We walked a mile down our beach to see this seal that has come onto shore for a couple of days. Yes it is alive. We are told after a couple of days it will go back to the ocean.

Giovannis shrimp truck which is highly recommended although it looks like a health hazard.

Aloha


Sorry no pictures yet we have been so busy but I am hoping tomorrow we will have faster internet so I can get some pictures up... Today (Monday) we went the USS Arizona Memorial at Pearl Harbor which was great we also visited the Punch Bowl memorial site and a few other places close to our hotel. Got some good pictures at Waikiki beach at sunset which I will try to add to this post but it may not work and did lots of shopping and eating. We are still trying to adjust to the 3 hour time difference. Cant wait to escape to Laie and leave all the hustle and bustle at Waikiki beach.
Awesome the picture worked. This picture is from my cell phone. check beck later for more. Goodnight....
