On Oahu with Dad

After a wonderful week on the island of Maui we then flew over to Oahu and drove north to Laie where we had rented another beautiful house.

The house had a pool overlooking Puehuehu Bay 

 The pool water was around 83 degrees but felt nice

By getting up early every morning I had the chance to read

On our side of the point our house was a rocky shoreline but a 2 minute walk to the other side brought us to this beach

The 5 of us drove inland and toured the Dole Plantation
  It takes 2 1/2 years to grow   

Driving back we stopped at Waimea Bay
to take a look at the Banzai Pipeline where the surfers tackle the big waves. It was such a calm beach I asked a local where were the big waves and he told me we were there the wrong time of year, that it was during the winter when they surf here.

It was a short walk back to the top of the beach

We drove down to Pearl Harbor but were unable to go out to the USS Arizona Memorial because of rough water in the harbor.
