Travel tip today is Waimea Bay on the North Shore.
During the winter and when the giant waves are up, if you get up early and can get parking on the highway up and above the waves, you might witness something like this...
That kind of surf only comes up once or twice a year, if at all. In the 28 years I have lived here, I have only witnessed it twice.
Howver, during the summer, Waimea is a huge salt water pool with the clearest water you can imagine. A great beach for snorkeling.
We like to walk to the far left side of the bay, past the rock the crazy kids jump off of (and yes, you might find my crazy son jumping off it from time to time).
On a lower ledge, you might even find my dog hanging with the boys.
The ocean is unbelievably clear.
The rocks provide an underwater playground.
Or a moment of zen.
