Waimea Falls and Makapu'u Lighthouse

This weekend, we went outside and did stuff. We have been fairly active the past few weekends, which has been nice since being cooped up with a cold and pneumonia earlier in the month. Also, our friend, Madison, is here for a month...so that always makes us go out and do more. Saturday, Madison and I went with Eve to Waimea Falls. CRH and Eve had been there with Kevin and Julie and the kids back in October. In November a rock slide closed the park and it just re-opened on January 19th. It was a beautiful day to go too...not too hot and not very crowded. Madison swam to the fall and Eve put her toes in. I took pictures on the side...it was too chilly for me!

Sunday, CRH was off and we went to Makapu'u Lighthouse. There is a hike along the shore that overlooks the lighthouse and you can often see whales. We didn't see any whales...apparently we weren't looking at the right times...but it was a pretty hike. Here's a pic of the lighthouse and a picture of a butterfly that was just hanging out. There were lots of birds and butterflies...just no whales. I want to take a whale watching tour within the next month or so. It is prime whale time here!
