My WONDERFUL husband bought me one last night and we couldn’t WAIT to take it for a spin!
So today started out a bit of a disaster. We planned on going to Hanauma Bay for the morning after dropping the kids off at school (do you even know how awesome that is?!) but guess what? It’s closed on Tuesdays! This is something that we didn’t realize until driving there, so we decide to hit up our other favorite, Shark’s Cove on the North Shore.
Couple things about me:
I have a pretty good memory when it comes to maps.
I am stubborn as hell and don’t like to admit being wrong.
I actually LIKE getting lost/figuring how roads connect etc.
And one thing about my husband:
he highly dislikes being lost and my constant assurance that I ‘totally know where we are.’
Unfortunately I had left my Oahu book in the other car and we didn’t bring the GPS because we knew where we were going. So I suggest we follow the highway around the island instead of backtracking and taking our usual central island route. I knew you could drive around the entire island but I think I may have misremembered (totally a word) quite how large the eastern half of the island is. So while the drive was beautiful, I don’t recommend doing it when you have plans and kids to pick up at 2!
Anyways, a couple snaps from our scenic drive:
Thank GOD we had an awesome snorkeling day, trust me we needed it!
Shark’s Cove was great, we saw a TON of stuff and I put my new camera to use.
I put all of my fish photos here to try and track everything we’ve seen and to help anyone who needs a hand with fish identification!
