Well, we found the biggest chicken on Kauai. Here she is.
APPARENTLY I only love snorkeling when the fish keep their distance. In Kona we snorkeled in a bay and in the surf and I loved it both times. Here in Kauai we snorkeled several times at Lawai Beach and it is AWESOME and we snorkeled at Tunnels Beach and I was A-OK.
Po’ipu Beach has a LOT more fish. A LOT. Schools and schools and schools of them all swimming at me and it’s real shallow so I can’t escape the schools. I hated it – freaked me out entirely. Death holds no fear for me, but apparently thousands of fish are REALLY scary! You will see photos of all the scary fish in a post by Jeremy later. He got some great shots underwater at Po’ipu Beach!
I adore the ocean. I love the surf. I love to watch fish. But it is obvious to me now that I appreciate them much more from land. See – you can shoot turtles from above the waves!
There were a lot of turtles at Poipu Beach including nice cooperative ones that came onto the sand to visit with me. It is a GORGEOUS beach!
When Jeremy went back in to snorkel some more (with 400 other snorkelers) I enjoyed shooting the place up from the safety of the sand.
I was using the water camera and got some spots on a couple…
The three pictures below show a spit of sand that leads to a reef of lava rocks. The waves break around both sides of the spit and come at you from both directions at once as you walk out to what becomes a tiny island at high tide! The third pic is shot from the lava rock reef looking back at the beach.
Another glorious day in paradise.
