Makapuu Point Hike

7:02 AM

So we have decided to take up hiking. Last month we did the Kailua pillbox hike, which was amazing. Last weekend we decided to make an attemp at whale watching which leads us to hike #2 (makapu'u lighthouse). I heard from someone at work that you can usually see whales from the lookout. We had no such luck, but it was absolutely stunning. We packed a picnic and sat at the highest lookout while we had lunch. It was so nice. Here are some photos from the hike....

We are Ready to go!!!!

This was the first thing we saw... looking back as we started the hike...not sure what happened, but it was an interesting start!!!

this is the view you see as you start up the hike. Sandy's beach is over there

The tease...

This is with my ultra zoom lense...the water is such a pretty color here

these ppl hiked way down may not look far away, but they looked like tiny little specks to us

JR and Olivers Lion King Moment..

Looking down at the lighthouse....

Stopped for lunch to enjoy the view and hope to see some whales.....below is the view from our lunch spot

The panoramic

This is sea life park (where they filmed 50 first dates)


Overall the hike was great. I was bummed not to see any whales, but maybe next time. The trail is paved which was perfect for everyone, but i think oliver's feet got hot. I'm trying to talk JR into letting me get him the booties... thats not going well so far. There are lots of little areas to get off the beaten path and take photos. I love the kailua pillbox hike, but i have to say that this one was better... hope you enjoy and take ya'll can tell us which ones you want to do when you come....
