Remember how much we love snorkeling in Sharks Cove?
That was Summer's Sharks Cove...
This is Winter's Sharks Cove:
The life guards shut down most of the beaches on North Shore because of these waves! The camera doesn't begin to do them justice. We just kept staring and saying WOW.... WOAH!!! OH MY GOODNESS DID YOU SEE IT!! OOH OH OH LOOK AT THIS ONE!!
Yup that's not a little cumulus cloud sitting on the ocean. That is the spray of a HUGE wave!
Here is some video Richard took:
This one he zoomed in a little for us:
Richard found this freshly molted crab. It was crazy how soft and squishy it was! Felt almost like the consistency of an eel.
and I found this adorable hermit crab!
This little brackish pool doesn't usually have enough water to even be a pool but today it was overflowing and even had it's own waterfall!
I got this series as a HUGE wave came crashing in:
That one didn't even clear out before it was hit by another!
It was impressive how clear the water was, even with all the turbulence.
Check out this shell completely embedded in the rock:
On the way back home we stopped by Haleiwa Beach Park.
We got to watch this little sail boat challenge the waves!
They made it out very well! I was quite impressed.
Back at home my Lemon Tree has started blooming again!
The blossoms look much healthier this time around!
And my little lemon that survived from the last batch still seems to be doing well!
Also I tried a new recipe for dinner and it turned out FANTASTIC!
