since hanauma bay was closed yesterday, we went today. it’s a really beautiful bay, with great snorkelling, but i found it super ridiculous that you have to watch a 9 minute video before you enter the park. it basically tells you not to step on the reef and “look, don’t touch”. and then everyone steps all over the reef anyway!
i hope i don’t bore you too much with all the fish pictures! like i said, i love my camera!
we followed this guy for awhile (he had a cute little cleaner fish that trailed behind him):
and he and his sidekick:
and there was a small school of these big guys:
we thought these were cool looking – the only creature of their color:
these are my favorite fish when diving in st. croix (USVI). if you catch them at the right angle, their blue stripe turns colors. it’s really beautiful:
haunama bay. view from the top – notice that the beach isn’t too crowded, tourism was slow while we were there:
tonight we also said our goodbyes to kaelene and her family (though sanoe was gone and the baby was asleep). we had such a great time with them and it was great to meet her beautiful family and catch up!
serious faces. kiara, kaelene, and maka:
we miss you guys!
we are headed back to maui in the morning.
