We went snorkeling both Wednesday and today, and saw tons of amazing tropical fish. We also were thrilled to be snorkeling right next to gorgeous Hawaiian green sea turtles. ( I can't take credit for the first three photos, I've never had luck with those underwater cameras.). Anyway, being so up close and personal to those beautiful creatures is one of the most amazing things we have ever done! As they are protected, it is illegal to touch them or harass them in any way. Just being able to witness them in their own habitat is truly a treat that we won't forget!
Yesterday was another adventure, as hubby rented an airplane, and we spent several hours flying over the island, as well as along the Molokai coastline. Below is a photo of the condos we are staying at. The cove you see is where we snorkel. It sure is going to be hard leaving this beautiful place!
Below you will see the coastline of Molokai. I wish that you could have been with us, as the photos just don't do it justice! Molokai has the world's tallest sea cliffs, and the views are just incredible!
Ok, I got my photos a bit out of order here. Below you will see the coastline on the way to Hana, which is one of the most beautiful little towns I have ever seen!
amid all of the lush greenery.
And here is yours truly in front of our ride! It was a very, very windy day, making much of the flight super bumpy! We hitched a ride (which is a story in and of itself, and issomething I wouldn't even dream about back home on the mainland!!!) into town and back, and had a bite to eat for lunch.
Tomorrow we are heading to "upcountry", to visit the "Surfing Goat Dairy" (don't you love that name?), as well as a lavender farm. I'll be sure to take lots of photos!
Thanks for coming along on our adventures!
Wishing you all a verry Happy New Year!
