Total Basset Case: Aloha! Hawaii Part 3

Aloha! Hawaii Part 3

Back with more aloha for you!

Long before we got to Hawaii I asked Kait if we could go to the Makapu'u Tide Pools because I had seen her amazing pictures and really wanted to experience it.  Getting to the tide pools required a bit of a hike (totally fine) and then scaling down the side of a cliff (not so fine).  No one told me about scaling a mountain to get to the tide pools and it is better that they didn't.  The climb was intense and scary and really awesome all at the same time.  About halfway through I thought 'well this is happening and there is no turning back.'  I am actually pretty proud of myself for doing the climb, it was a doozy.
The photo we told Mister to send to Dateline if we didn't make it. (Kidding Mom, sorta...)

And totally worth it!  The tide pools were absolutely beautiful and worth the trek.  A true hidden gem.  

And what goes down, must climb back up...
Just a bit daunting...
But also one of my favorite parts of our trip.

When we weren't out scaling mountains, we spent a lot of time with Miss New Judy.
She is such a sweet, sweet girl.
And loves a good golf cart ride...
Stole this one from Kait

And when Judy needed a break from us, we would happy hour at cool a bar full of Coast Guard memorabilia or the best and most unusual mai tais you've ever had.

So glad you were able to see them! That's always the hard think you've made it (and you have) but then you have to reverse the whole thing!
