Girl’s Day Out #2
Hanauma Bay Park
This time we chose to go snorkeling to the Hanauma Bay Park and try to see if we could take a peek at the Humuhumunukunukuapuaa fish, (can you say that again?) This is as close we got to the Hawaiian state fish…
Humuhumunukunukuapua’a – Hawaiian State Fish
Snorkeling in Hanuma Bay
We left our condo at about 6:00 AM so we could get there early before the crowds 8)
It’s a long way down, but there is a bus that will take you down for 75 cents and a dollar to take you back up. Smart people.
After Hanuma Bay we headed to see the “blow-hole”. I think it was off that day (lol), but the view was breathtaking.
Side Note: We asked a man to take our photo – he did not speak English. It was funny how we got our point across. We even took his camera and his picture and I don’t think he wanted us to. 8)

On top of Diamond Head
While we were in Hawaii this summer and after both of our boys returned back to the main land early in the week, Fermin and Losiah decided to spend some “boy time” while we girls spent some “girl time” and on our first outing decided to go and hike Diamond Head. I have wanted to do this since the first time I visited Hawaii, back in the 80′s, but never had anyone that wanted to do it with me – and believe me I have been to Hawaii many, many times since then.
So Heather, Sohaila, Seanna and I packed some sandwiches and drinks and headed to Diamond Head – boy I almost did not make it, but the girls kept encouraging me to continue and I finally made it to the top of Diamond Head!!!. What an accomplishment!!! it felt so good to be on top of that volcano and with my girls! I will never forget that experience! Thank you Heather for facilitating this experience and thank you Honey for spending one on one time with Losiah.
Here are just some of the photos we all took on that hike.
Just before the hike
Am I smiling? It must be because Sohaila is helping me (LOL)
See those steps? I also had to climb them! ”Yes, Heather, I’m OK, Go ahead, I’ll catch up with you guys”
Went through a dark tunnel.
Yes!!! They made it to the top!!
My arms are not as high as theirs, but I also made it!!! God is soooo good!!!
Hawaiian Shaved Ice – Sweet ending to a great day!!!
The Bible tells us to “Be strong and courageous” I’m trying Lord!
