    LOVE HAnauma Bay!! I could have stayed there forever! Kailani, do you know if the seal is still there? I never saw it, though, my mom did.

    “i wanna go back…”

    It is just as pretty as I remember, maybe if we do make it back we can actually go snorkling.

    you know what, and i know people are gonna say “freak!” to me, but i’ve wanted to go there since Dr. Jacoby in the show Twin peaks mentioned it. LOL I know, silly, but I’m such a twin peaks fan. :D

    Nice shot!

    I think things may have changed since the first time I went to Hanauma Bay. I remember we walked out and around to the “toilet bowl”. Somethings we never forget like jumping into a huge hole in the rocks so we can get literally tossed in the air. Hmmmmm, youth!

    Funny, my anti-spam word would be love! Cause I love Hanama Bay. I lived in Hawaii Kai for a couple years, so we would go and snorkal all the time there, and play. Or we would hit Sandy Beach for some surfing, boogy boarding, etc.

    Papa and I have been talking of retiring there, most likely where the homes are less expensive like Volcano, Big Island, or my favorite Island I lived on, Kauai. Gotta find the out of the way places , to be able to purchase a home under 300k! I bet you can’t find one there in Hawaii Kai area, or even the Windward side, or EITHER side.

    My step brothers and sisters still live there, but, it has been way to long since I have been back…way too long. Thanks for the beautiful shot and the memories it brought back.

  31. Jeanette Jackson says:

    When we were there in 2005 I had to laugh because if you took the ride down to the water it only cost 50 cents but the ride back up the hill cost 1 dollar. (And, yes, we paid the dollar to go back up that hill after snorkelling for 2 hours)

  32. Christine says:

    So beautiful…

    I’ve been there once before, but it was on an extremely overcast and yucky day… I would love to visit again when it looks like that!

    Happy WW! Mine’s up, too!
