Hey Guys! How have you all been? These photos are from a trip we originally took to watch surfers at North Shore Bonsai Pipeline. That didn’t happen so we drove around and ended up getting lost. I think it was all God’s plan to show us some more of his beautiful creation. We eventually found our way to Ka’ena Point Trail. This is a kind of record of that day.
It took us an hour to get to North Shore Bonsai Pipeline to watch surfers. Only to arrive and find no one there. The sky was overcast, it was raining and the waves were very choppy. So we started heading back home. Guess what we saw when going past Waimea Bay? Surfers! So we looked for a place to park but, the closest spot was almost a mile away. We decided to drive further down the coastline. We stopped I don’t know where. There wasn’t any surfing happening but, I took lots of beautiful pictures. Someone will have to tell me where I was. My husband thinks it’s funny and won’t tell me where we were. Ha ha! So the Palm trees above were along the beach where we stopped.
I love how the sunlight peeked through a hole in the clouds lighting up the boat and the waves near it. I find the grey colors to be beautiful!
We saw these wind turbines from a nearby park. We stopped there under some shade to unpack our backpacks and have some snacks after visiting the hot sunny beach. Does this help with location identification? Ha ha! I feel like “Where’s Waldo?” Only I’m playing, “Where Am I?”
So after we ate our snacks we packed up thinking, “Whew, it’s been a beautiful morning. Lets go home and chill.” But no! We saw a sign that mentioned Ka’ena Point Trail. A few minutes later we came to the end of the road at Ka’ena Point State Park. Ignorantly we headed down the trail with slippahs to “protect” our feet from the mud, sun, and rocks. Gosh! My feet hurt for 2 days after that. We definitely have to stash more than beach items in the trunk! Beach gear is not enough when you’re spontaneous and live in an area like this. However, because of the beautiful views we saw, I felt that it was worth the pain.
Almost all the way at the end of the trail we found Ka’ena Point Natural Area Reserve! This albatross was nesting on the edge of the trail. It was amazing! There were albatross everywhere in the air and on the ground. I tried for a while but, I am not talented enough to compose a good clear photograph of birds in flight. I need much more practice.
Here I bid you farewell until next time. Go outside if you can and have a blessed day.
