Wordless Wednesday... Kinda

Mean Muggin
I just love when his lip gets stuck.

Sunset Cruise

   Mike and I are celebrating our anniversary early this year. We decided to try a sunset dinner cruise on the Navatek 1.
Too bad it was crappy out all day. (not good for the hair)
 When we do special things like this, we usually splurge and get the best quality/best seats in the house but this time we settled on the buffet dinner. 
The Royal dinner was serving lobster and filet but I though to myself the atmosphere wouldn't be as fun...and I was right. The manager took us up to the second level where there was a bunch of people sitting with candle light and soft music playing. Our floor had an actually show going on. 
 Also, everyone pretty much had a window seat. Usually there is a upgrade fee for this but because it wasn't that busy so they sat us all with the best seat in the house.
 The sunset was pretty much non-extant which kinda stunk but Waikiki was looking beautiful.
Happy 2 years hunny! Love You!

Promotion Ceremony

 Mike had his Promotion Ceremony today. I'm so proud of him!
(He is the one on the far left)

Patty's Day

  Once again Mike and I had a great St. Patty's day here in Oahu. Last year we were new to the island and didn't really have a group of friends yet. This year was a little different. Starting the day bright and early at 10:00 am, we met a group of friends in China Town to start the fun.

Hurting the next morning at work...

The Mokes

   We took out chances heading to the Mokes last week hoping that the swells wouldn't make it to hard to get out.

The island on the left is the only one that you are allowed to explore. The right one is totally off limits for the sea birds.

   This place gets really packed really fast. Tours guides take people out here so they come in groups at a time. At one time the beach was pretty much all covered with kayaks.

 Looking towards home.

 Definitely having to watch your step. Very rocky!

Hawaii just gets better and better.

   What a unbelievably beautiful day it was today! It was a must that we spent every second outside enjoying it. 
   Maunawili is always a favorite. Easy,  with a good payoff.

   Next time I WILL be jumping in!!!
 It just doesn't get more perfect then this. I'm burnt to a crisp, but it was totally worth it!

He's Home!!!

Mike has been away for 2 months...and I am so glad he is back!
California treated him well. I'm just glad he came back with all his fingers and toes.  
 He is now a Winter Mountain Leader.

Manana Trail to Waimano Falls

  Manana Trail is the location where Waimano Falls is found. Thinking that it was going to be a quick, little, 2 mile hike to some beautiful falls...but getting a little bit different then what was expecting.

There is two separate paths. One leads you to the falls, the other keeps you on the 8 mile path to the summit. Well....the sign where we should have turned off to the path to the falls did not exist anymore and we passed right by the pole that it used to be on.

 We got to about this point when we realized something is just not right. We finally saw a fellow hiker and asked for directions.
We turned around.
 And here is the dreaded pole....no sign

Cardiac Hill.
 Looking at it now it wasn't that hard, but while we were doing it, it was torcher.

There were actually 3 different waterfalls with 3 different pools.

The water was freezing! 

 These pictures don't even do justice!

This summer we will definitely be going back to take a dip!
