My Oahu Escapades – Hanauma Bay (part 3/5)

Another day to explore, another OMG! :-0 I can’t refrain from saying the word “nice” every-time we got out for a ride and explore the island.

Again, we didn’t catch up with sunrise and I don’t think will ever be 🙂

Though we arrived early, we didn’t go down to snorkel. Hanauma Bay is great for snorkelling. It is sheltered from strong currents and waves. People starts to come as early as 6 in the morning.

Under the tire of one the cars parked in the area, I’ve seen two small creatures fast-moving around.  It was not easy to take the shots but I tried. These small animals are called Mongoose  known also by its Hawaiian name of ‘lole manakoke.

I have settled not to go down because of the spectacular view on the top. So beautiful, so blue and green.. so refreshing..

I took 3 shots and didn’t use filter to alter the background. It’s really beautiful!
