Our tent is the one on the right and I was personally insulted by the sprouting of our neighbour's tent so close to ours. Their tent was so close that Nadine and I both accidentally tried to go into their tent later that day.
We read about a place on Hana bay that served good breakfast called Tutu's and decided to head out there for breakfast this morning. Great decision on our part! Two cups of coffee and two delicious breakfast sandwiches later (which we enjoyed on a picnic table right by the beach on Hana bay), we jumped into the Jeep and made our way back through to Hana highway.
The first thing we sought out was the Blue pool which according to our guide book, was located at the end of Ula'ino road. At the end of the road, we found ourselves at an unattended parking lot which required us to pay $5 to park. Not wanting to pay the $5, we drove closer down the dirt road, and found the Blue pool.
It was surprising for me to see a bunch of "No Parking" signs all around the clearing right before the path that led to the Blue pool. Must be the work of the owner of said parking lot. I turned the jeep around and just heading back to park at the lot and paid the $5. We ended up not staying too long at the Blue pool.
Our next stop was down Nahiku road. The scenery is amazingly green and beautiful. Nothing too impressive at the end so we took some pictures and moved on. On our way back through Nahiku, we saw a local boy diving with his dogs in one of the streams/waterfalls. I asked if I could take a picture of him and he obliged with a sweet little smile.
Next, we went down a winding road down the side of some cliff thing which led us to the Wailuaiki falls. We parked our car at a parking lot/clearing and found a little path that led us down to a little pond right by the ocean. The view was magnificent and we had fun sitting in the cold yet refreshing water.
We saw lots of beautiful things and before midday rolled around, we were suffering from beauty fatigue. Hungry and tired, we headed back to camp, cooked dinner, ate and fell asleep.
