Very cool place but it was a little rough for snorkeling. A big wave hit while we were in the water and knocked all of our stuff off the rocks. A second wave - bigger than the first - hit and I guess everyone was done playing.
We had a good mix of adventure and relaxation, but in my opinion, just a little too much time in the car. On our last full day we decided to go on a hike. The plan was to hike to a waterfall that was four miles in and I would say pretty treacherous.
View of the famous Napali Coast.
From there, we hiked down to a beach where the water was so high that there was no beach just rocks.
Continuing on up again, following the river, to find the waterfall. This part of the hike was pretty fun, lots of cool stuff to see.
Robyn is so cute!
And then after a lot more hiking...we get to the waterfall...
By the time we got there we had no more drinking water, I think we were all hungry and I was ready to get back to playing in the ocean, so I pretty much ran back. Jeff had on some $8.00 "el cheapo" boat shoes with no socks, and started getting blisters (in addition to what he had already) about a half mile into our 8 mile quest. He wanted to get back just as much as I did so he could rest his ouchie feets. Needless to say, getting there took much longer than going back. All in all I'm glad we did the hike, but Jason said it best as we had our picture taken. The woman taking the pic said "say cheese" and he yelled "Never Again!".
(I hate this pic of me but it was the picture previously mentioned so it has to be posted. Um could I be sticking my belly out any further or what?)
We had such a great time, I wish it could have lasted longer but we were happy to go home to our kids. Thanks Pecks for coming with us, I can't wait for the next trip.
I'll try to figure out a slide show thing to show more pics.
