First Week Fun: Waimea Bay

From Wiamea Bay, Jan 2009


We can’t have all work and no play, right? Jim and I decided to take some of our time during our first week to be tourists.

The first out of town trip we made was up to Waimea Bay Beach Park on the North Shore, and the country town of Hale’iwa. We had lunch at Breakers in Hale’iwa, a yummy kalua pork sandwich. Not quite stuffed to the gills, we stopped for a shave ice at Aoki’s. Yummy stuff, but don’t get the large size unless you are super hungry! I highly recommend getting the shave ice with the ice cream on the bottom – some of that yummy syrup drips down through the ice and forms a nice topping on the ice cream.

Next we made our way to Waimea Bay Beach Park to see some of the legendary big winter waves. While the waves we saw probably weren’t of legendary size, they were pretty darn impressive. Lots of body surfers (experienced ones), tried their luck with the waves. Looked pretty brutal to me!

Here are some pictures from Waimea Bay, including the rainbow we saw as we left:
