Hello everyone! Here’s another shot from Hawaii. I took this one when we were out on a snorkel tour in Kaneohe Bay. Which, as you can probably guess, is the bay that’s right off of the city of.. umm.. Kaneohe. There’s a neat sandbar out there where the boat took us, where they cooked up some burgers and stuff. The snorkeling wasn’t any good there though, but after lunch they actually took us to a reef where there were actually, you know, things to see. Unfortunately, the weather didn’t quite work out (something about the wet season, rain forest, and blah blah blah), so I wasn’t able to get any crazy turquoise water shots that a sandbar would normally be good for. Oh well, maybe next time. It was pretty odd though, standing on a thin strip of sand that was an inch or two above the water level, taking a picture of the boat that had taken us way out into the bay. Weird.
Those mountains in the background are ridiculously beautiful. Seriously. You have to see them for yourself. I was trying to get a good picture of them the entire time I was in Hawaii (we spent the entire time on Oahu). But, the weather just never worked out, at least not when I was in the area. Again, the whole “wet season” thing. This was on the windward (eastern) coast of Oahu, which is the cloudy/rainy side. (Since the weather rolls in that way, and the moist air turns into clouds and rain as it gets pushed over those mountains.) But, hey, I didn’t pick the dates of our trip, so you can blame my buddy Mark and his new wife Michaela for that.
