Underwater Pics

So we finally got the underwater camera developed... soo here are some pics (Big Island, My sisters visit, My Birthday).

These pics were taken at Captain Cook's Monument in Kealakekua Bay. Brian & I went kayaking out to the monument (only way out there), and were fortunate enough to be amongst several schools of spinner dolphins... once we got out to the monument there was some fabulous snorkeling. Since Bri is part fish, he got some great shots diving down. Enjoy!

My sister Krissi's Visit to Hawaii!

My sister Krissi came out to Hawaii for 8 days for my better gift!! We had a great time just us girls (the hubby & kids stayed home).

Some things we did. . .
Waimea Bay, Waimea Waterfall, Lanikai Beach, Ko'Olina Lagoons, Paradise Cove Luau, Pearl Harbor, shopping at the swap meet/outlets, Waikiki Beach, spent the night downtown at the Hale Koa in Waikiki, had a BBQ on Waikiki beach, ate shave ice & many other Hawaiian treats (I even made spam, eggs, & rice for breakfast one day), Hiked Diamond Head Crater, Wailua Beach, Ka'aena Point(spelling?!), Sharks Cove, North Shore, Dole Plantation, & we rented a pontoon boat on the Windward Side (YES, I now have my boating license) & went out to the sandbar (10 of us, plus 1 dog).

. . . I'm pretty sure we covered everything there is to do here. I think my sister is gonna need a vacation after her vacation.

Here are some pics of our fun times =) Enjoy.
