Here is the complete map of our travels along the windward Coast and the Southeast corner of Oahu for Friday, May 1, 2015.
I still have pictures to post of the kite surfing at Kailua Beach Park and of the Halona Blowhole.
This was the first visit to the blowhole where we actually saw it spew water. There was a good swell, and we caught it about 2 hours after high tide, so we saw it in action, finally. I will get some pictures posted ASAP.

At the recommendation of Steve Lipman this afternoon, we took a detour over to Kailua Beach Park, as we have never gotten over there previously.
Found parking at the south end of the beach, as today was a semi-holiday, it was Lei Day on Hawaii, and everyone was out and about.
Got some nice shots of kite surfers and other scenery on my Nikon DSLR that I will have to load in the future.
These are especially for a friend who wishes to be and is posted by request.
Now I have to give my legs a rest for a few hours, as I did not realize how much walking on the loose sand and the steep slope of the wave washed sand would take out of me.
Besides the fact that a small “rogue wave” splashed against my legs, soaking my shorts and shirt so I am back in the room changing my clothes.
But, it was worth it if it made someone’s day 😉
A quick walk around Turtle Bay, but my legs are in pretty sorry shape, very little muscle endurance, maybe to worst since our visit in 2007 and the height of my neuromuscular issues…
