Day 4 December 30, 2014
We slept late today…..I think we were tired from all the walking yesterday. We had 3 goals for the day:
· Manoa Falls
· Makapu'u Point Lighthouse
· Diamond Head
We started out at Manoa Falls Trail. The books said the trail was easy however it was a bit more challenging than I thought it would be.
There were lots of green plants and tall trees. The trail started to get muddy as we got closer to the falls. I was ready to give up a couple of times however Joe pushed me to finish.
The falls was really beautiful. There were lots of people swimming at the falls and the water was cold. The only animal we saw was a rooster.
Next we drove up the coast to the Makapu'u Point Lighthouse.
We started up the steep path and we almost made it to the lighthouse but it looked like it was going to rain and I was getting nervous and tired so we headed back down. We did see some humpback whales swimming in the ocean. It was a good thing we turned back because it did start to rain a little bit and when we got to the car it poured!
We drove a little bit more up the coast and we did see the top of the lighthouse but it was so dark and it was just pouring out we did not get a good picture. It rained the rest of the afternoon so we headed to the airport. We ate dinner at the airport and sat there a long time because our flight was delayed because of all the rain.
Our flight to the Big Island what bumpy and when we arrived we could not believe the airport. It was outside. The buildings were not connected and the baggage claim was under a canopy…..very different.
