Adventuring & Exploring

Whale Watching

Went on a whale watching tour out of Haleiwa. I would have needed one heck of an expensive lens to get “that” picture of a whale, so sat back, relaxed and enjoyed the experience instead!

A Rogue Wave came out of NOWHERE while walking the beach; talk about getting a drenching!

Oahu – 3rd Largest Island of the Hawaiian Islands

I visited Oahu in 2000 and it was a remarkable visit – still remember the highlights today.


  • Honolulu (Waikiki Beach & Diamond Head)
  • Hanauma Bay (some R&R & snorkeling – the Toliet Bowl)

Sea Turtle at Hanauma Bay

  • Pearl Harbor (USS Arizona Memorial) [side note – the Pearl Harbor movie was being filmed the day of our visit]
  • Kane’ohe Bay (some R&R & ocean kayaking)

Kane’ohe Bay – Mokoli’i (Chinaman’s Hat)

  • North Shore (stopped at the Turtle Bay Resort, saw the beach where Baywatch was filmed)
  • Polynesian Cultural Center (to explore and be part of a Luau)

Visiting Oahu was an amazing experience and lucky for me on this trip I had one more island to see, Maui.
