As I've mentioned, it's been cloudy and voggy here a lot lately. Very discouraging, but as long as it's not acutally raining, it's worth getting out and doing things. So yesterday, Britt, Betty, Caleb and I decided to tackle Makapuu Lighthouse. It's about an hour's drive and a steep uphill 1-mile walk to the point where you can see the lighthouse down over the side of the hill. If you're there on a good day, you can see whales breeching off in the distance, beautiful aqua colors in the water and islands off in the distance.
Well....it wasn't a good day. It was cloudy again. Betty brought along her binoculars and didn't see a thing. It was so hazy we could hardly see the horizon, let alone another island and the water certainly wasn't aqua. But it was still a wonderful day (any day without snow is a good day in my book) and we had a great time.
Now, this lighthouse is on the windward (aka-rainy) side of the island, so it always confounds me that there are so many cactus plants along the path. But there they are, in all their glory. This is the first time I've ever seen these "flowers", which were really beautiful, in their own sort of way.
This is looking back down the path and at the top of the point is a pill-box used durning the war.
And, the star attraction, the lighthouse.
Maybe I mis-spoke before. This is the star attraction, at least for me--Caleb.
