130825 Hanauma Bay
Woke up early, the newly wed couple (Danish/Portuguese) and others still sleeping so I left on tiptoe. Went to the beach and to my surprise a lot of actions going on. The last of Dukes festival I assume. Back at the Hostel one guy is cooking, and cooking a whole lot of food. For breakfast? On that poor piece of machinery called a stove? Amazing! He too has a girlfriend staying here. Her heritage seem to be some of the natives of America.

Today we are going to Hanauma Bay Nature Reserve. Acc to my granddaughter I have to join the group on bus 22. Same as yesterday it turned out but not that much people. I found them straight away. This is the remains of a crater and there was lots of coral reeves in there. A bit difficult to take a swim as you were not allowed to touch the corals. We had to attend a lecture before we were allowed to go down to the beach. It was interesting. And it was hot. So swimming was necessary. Tried to take some pics but it did not work really. I was a bit disappointed of the beach. The corals was not the colorful ones and not much fish. The place was very nice from the rim though. But I´m glad they take care of it. As a photographer I was most pleased of a woman taking a shower. 
I was given a towel for the beach. Very beautiful and to my surprise the sand don´t get caught in it. 


At five we took the bus back to Waikiki where we had dinner in a restaurant and then watched the setting sun before the gang headed back to the house. I stayed for a while listening to the music.

  7. Oh wow, a lovely sight, is that in full view of the tourists? I remember once when i visited a waterfalls here, after diving on the falls the pair of white tourists just removed their underwear at the ledge on top of the falls, to our full view. They didn't even bother that we have our camera on tripods, so i took a shot.
