and alittle more Hawaii....

On Friday we went to North Shore and we were able to FINALLY do the shark adventures. We have planned to do it every year for the last 3 or 4 years and every time it gets canceled because of the rough sea...luckily this year we were able to pull it off.
We had to go out in 4 different groups as they only take 10 per boat. So this is one of our other groups passing us on their way back to shore. We were about 3 miles out to sea for this and the water was still pretty rough so once we got in the cage we got knocked around a bit.
Here is Rich with the lovely girls that were on our boat. The second one over from Rich tells us that she is planning to be our daughter in law some day! LOL...she is on a mission to meet Hayden and she and her friend to the left of her in the photo plan to come here for snowboarding lessons! LOL


Here we are in the cage....from left to right

It was really fun and surprisingly I was not nervous at all to do this. It was a little freaky at first, worrying about having your fingers and toes exposed when you were holding on to the case below the yellow floats but it was so cool to see the sharks up close...it was almost hard to believe that they could be dangerous.

after we left the beach at north shore we went up to sacrifice hill to check out the sunset


On Saturday, just before we left to come home, we were in Honolulu and this is the sunset we caught from the balcony at the Mall.

Below is a video of the shark adventure....
